  1. Jack Marinello scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A bit alcoholic at first, fairly classic sherry, leather, tobacco, spices.
    • Taste
      The same thing.
    • Finish
      Very short unfortunately.

  2. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producer's notes by George S. Grant:

    The colour is a rich amber; darker than you would expect from a refill cask.

    Give this whisky time to breathe as the heavy nose, rich in old leather, definitely develops with a little air. There are also hints of fresh tobacco.

    It is a spicy whisky that has a lot to offer: some pear drops at the front of the mouth giving way to light sherry and a hint of tannin from the wood.

    Light at first, the finish develops and is long, elegant and sherried.
    Bottled 2007.
