  1. Funtik scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

  2. hawk31 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious high quality malt without question.

    But I was hoping for a little more, the bottom line is that it seems a bit irrelevant and replaceable, the finish is quite short to medium-long. The PX makes the malt noticeably sweeter than a pure Oloroso ripening
