  1. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A tour of the sawmill, please ... Great, old and also complex malt, These woody, cardboard notes are dominant, but something different. Interesting and exciting what there is. But for me there are enough balancing aromas that always create a nice, solid contrast. So: class malt!
    • Nose
      90 90
      sweet, woody beginning, polished plank flooring with loft romance, fruits come through a little timidly, apple, ripe bananas, apricots, slightly caramelized sugar, nice rich malt with a lot of vanilla and caramel, a little chocolate is included, everything seems a bit overloaded and just intense, yet harmonious and round.
    • Taste
      90 90
      strong, spicy appearance, oak, woody notes appear and make it bitter, slowly the slightly fruity, vanilla-sweet note moves forward and ensures a pleasant balance. Citrus notes with mint provide a slightly fresh component,
    • Finish
      88 88
      medium length finish, wood, somewhat sticky, sticky, only slightly fruity, becomes a bit bitter and dry.

    Color: deep copper

    Uh, yes. A look at B. shows Inchgower 1982 some odd bottlings, so it doesn't just seem to have been an ex-whatever barrel. The bitter aromas indicate a strong influence of wood, but then almost no tannins come through ... I like it, 90 completely empty points.
    • Nose
      ?! Christmas cookies with cinnamon, chocolate and jam, which were all too long in the oven, black bread, chipboard and eagle owl, lime juice and fully ripe grapes, baked apples. Turpentine, chopped hazelnuts. A veil of dust over everything. With water: more black bread, more grapes, black cherries. Dusty custard, gummy bears.
    • Taste
      Turpentine, caramel and over-toasted brown bread, dry bark, tree sap, grape juice. With water: pickled cucumber, dill and mustard seeds. Canned peaches on black bread, lilac blossom. Dusty oak wood.
    • Finish
      Malt, lilac blossom, violet pastilles, apple peel, grape juice. Old oak wood, dust. Fresh oak shavings, dry pine needles. Surprisingly little bitter.

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A funny part. So I don't really need a large bottle of it, but I celebrated the sample. It is anything but ordinary.
    • Nose
      Carton. Bookshelf. Woodshed. Musty basement. Lime. Carrot and apple salad with vinegar, oil and lemon juice. Walnut. Pear peel with wax.
    • Taste
      Cocoa butter. Again the carrot and apple salad with vinegar, oil and lemon juice. Toasted nuts. Joinery. Again cardboard and paper notes.
    • Finish
      Oak wort and a pleasant sharpness that tingles. Yellowed books. A little yellow apple. Tonic water.

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's a very good whisky! It's fruity enough to be very enjoyable. The only thing that keeps this whisky away from a 90 score is that I find that the wood influence is a bit too much.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Colour: bunished
      Appearance: rather thick, but quick tears

      The nose is not bad, but both a tad restrained and overpowered by wood. It's not harsh, but just extreme woody like sniffing an unfilled cigar box. After a while, the mere wood influence weakens a little towards the direction of old Chesterfields, beeswax, pollen, malt and a lot of tropical fruit: peach, lychee, and mango. At the end there is a slight note of fresh coriander.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Also in the taste, the wood shows with vanilla and spices (next to the plain wood influence). Yet the fruit is present enough to balance this. Then there is fresh mint which lifts this whisky to a rather friendly and complex dram.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Moderately long, a bit dry on ginger, certainly woody (but not harsh) and fruity (overripe tropical fruit).
