  1. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 97 points Connoisseur

    A truly amazing whisky, that`s all I can say really. All the flavour are

    in the perfect balance and the mouthfeel is heavenly. What we really got

    here is some Christmas cinnamon, beautiful peat smoke, rich sticky

    toffee, raisins and really nice dark fruits.
