  1. rottendon scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Sensational, just great! Everything is just right here. Perfectly balanced. If the standards still tasted like this today, my shelf would be full of them.
    By the way, I wouldn't have packed it after Islay, today there is a lot more mallet, and I had no smoke in my nose.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fresh, fruity and creamy at the same time, furniture polish, fresh, slightly unripe mirabelles, cinnamon, but then also develops old bottle flavor. Mineral notes appear, along with tropical fruits, very complex. Reminiscent of the 1970s Speysider, which has come onto the market in recent years. Warmed up even denser, waxy, much furniture polish now.

      Creamy, full, ripe fruit, black currant, light smoke. Lots of strength for 40%, well-balanced sweetness, slightly mineral.

      Goes very slowly, still looks creamy, here too the smoke is only very minor.
