    Nose: mango, citrus fruits, almonds, a little vanilla Taste: Citrus fruits very balanced Finish: rather short, bitter metal remains.
    Very elegant whisky. Would be absolutely great, if not there was the bad finish. But still a very good whisky.

    [June, 2003]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80. Please see detailed tasting note below.

    The  body is of a medium texture.  The arrival on the palate is gentle but gets a little hot (peppery) after that.  Water does not change a lot.
    • Nose
      currants, tingling, burned raisins, caramel, slightly musty, medium sherry, mint, honey, cornflakes, later lemon balm, vanilla, cereals, quince jelly
    • Taste
      alcoholic, liquorice, not very spectacular
    • Finish
      short, peppery, slightly bitter

  6. Allandale scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A kind of silky body.
    • Nose
      Orange-cream icing on a cheesecake .
    • Taste
      Finely grated, zesty, citrus peels. Syllabub. Nougat.
    • Finish
      Refreshing but also warming.

  7. maltdude scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Solid dram, nothing special anyway. Pleasant, sweet nose.
    • Nose
      Honey, green apples, lemons, vanilla, caramel, ripe pears, hay and some nuts, more like walnuts.
    • Taste
      Cucumber, pears, honey, vanilla, cereals. Some spicy bitterness, white pepper.
    • Finish
      Short finish with some spicy oak tanins, nuts again. Some coffee maybe.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Milky honey, copper, estery lemon and mandarin orange. After burnt cold log with faintest touch of earthy smokes. P- Fresh and frizzy cherry, milky chocolate and vanilla coming thru
    with crisp dew. Nutty and good weight on palate. Pleasant and well

    F- Medium length, crisp and clean. Burst of sweet and citric fruits. Leave with a kiss of tart and spicy.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
