  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Great elegant malt, definitely looks older than it is.
    The sherry shows presence, but is never too superficial or overloaded and brings with it nice, 'old', slightly musty, woody aromas.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Great fresh fruits, very light sherry character, apples, oranges, some chocolate, maybe some fruity tobacco, light fresh citrus notes.

      Soft and elegant.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Clear sherry, relatively dark fruit notes, caramel, sweet dried fruits, very slightly spicy, slightly musty and musty, sweetish wood, slightly moist tobacco, sweet nuts.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Tart, very slightly bitter, moist wood, pleasant oily fruit notes. Plums? And some sweet and tart chocolate.

  2. Glensiddich scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Lovely, elegant sherried profile -sweet, aromatic and fruity with a background mocha note that lingers into the finish.

  3. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice calm sherry profile. If I hadn't tapped 1st fill.
    I like it pretty much.
    • Nose
      Nice full nose. Vanilla, light fruits, cookie dough, malt, cereals, beautiful roasted aromas play a role.
    • Taste
      Grain, vanilla, nice and sweet, alcohol is noticeable a bit burning despite 43%, light / citrus fruits.

  4. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Remarkable "oldish" profile.
    Fruity but also tobacco, mineral oils, wallnut peel and some metallic notes.
    Good dram for the money.

  5. Andytka3 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N- Light and gentle. Vanilla and fresh baked bread. Citrus and estery. Green tobacco and cola lurking at the background.

    P- Spicy entry and dry, follow by subtle sweet, honey and dried peaches emerge and lasts for long time.

    F- Medium-long, smooth. Balance dried fruity flavors with spiciness take center stage.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Tasting Notes by WhiskyFun.com (december 1, 2015):

    Colour: gold.

    Nose: oh, shoe polish! Green tobacco leaves! Mineral riesling! Cough syrup! One style that we enjoy a lot at WF towers, even if this came unexpected. 2002? Are they sure that wasn’t 1952?

    Mouth: perhaps a little drying, but this surely isn’t modern. Where else, except in Campbeltown, would you find some salted sweet mustard and this much tobacco? Curiously un-round, but very perfect – if you like this super-old style. Even older than the label.

    Finish: long, sooty, fino-ish. Fried bacon and chocolate.

    Comments: a surprise, I had thought this baby would be jammy and honeyed. Ha, preconceptions…

    SGP:362 – 87 points.
