  1. hs305 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2010]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 48 that I bought for 162 Euro in May, 2010.

    [January, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 124 that I bought for 162 Euro in April, 2009.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 this 90 and 92,5.  My notes state a truly complex and delicate profile with a great nose and no flaws at all.  Dangerously quaffable...

    Colour: Amber.
    Nose: Very fruity, clean, fresh, sweet, juicy, with plenty
    of berries and tangerine, light fragrant and floral notes as well as some peat
    smoke. Excellent.
    Taste: Spicy to very spicy, slightly dry and tanninc, on
    raisins, coffee, dark chocolate, figs, old black tea, tangerine and orange. The
    finish is long, dry, woody, slightly bitter, on orange, tannins, black tea and
    tangerine.
    General Impression: An excellent nose, but a tad drying and
    does not support very well. A very nice Longmorn.

  3. Medea scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Color: dark orange amber
    Nose: sour cherry, some Jagertee, sherry. Very lively and not as brutally chocolaty as 7.36. from SMWS
    On the palate: noticeably wood but not disturbing. Wonderfully fruity sweet. Excellent! A beautiful old longmorn
