  3. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur Color: Full, old gold
    Nose: A dark-colored fruit bomb with blackberries, dark red wild cherries, wild berries and currants, elderberry, leather, tobacco, black tea and peppermint tips. Smoky and spicy underlined (somehow reminiscent of the scent of Coke sweets).
    Taste: Immediately present on the tongue: elderberry, berries and plums with a lot of salty spice and delicate, pungent notes of eucalyptus, lemon balm and peppermint. Increasingly intense towards the finish with dry wood notes and pepper tips.
    Finish: Not all that long - a spicy blend of black teen, dried berry and plum and virtually no sweetness to be found. Delicious, dark chocolate flavors with underlaid wood remain on the tongue.
    Note: The rarest of all Bicentenary bottlings!
    93 points (nose: 94 / taste: 92 / finish: 92)
