2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.22 points

  1. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producer's tasting note by George S. Grant:

    A lovely dark golden colour.
    At just 46.3% Vol. this has lost more strength for its age than other cask in The Family Casks collection.
    However, what it lacks in strength, it makes up for in aromas. Intense. It's a very elegant whisky with a very good balance of nuttiness, fresh fruit and some liquorice.
    It's actually very similar in style and balance to Glenfarclas 21 Years Old. I would stick with this one though. The bottling has more depth, which gives it a much longer, and very warm, fulfilling finish.
    Bottled 2007.

  2. Malt Hans scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Spicy and fruity aroma, nutmeg, cardamom, anise, apple jam, apricot jam, vanilla and polished leather. Medium dry taste, pepper, cinnamon, ginger, liqourice, plum jam, honeyed walnuts and vanilla. Long, spicy and fruity end.
