  1. hs305 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2001]  I had my first dram during a Jim McEwan tasting while cruising the river Rhine aboard MS Godesia. 

    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 92,5.  My notes state an adorable fruity nose centered around blackcurrant aromas.  The body is well-balanced with fruity, peaty and maritime flavours.  The finish is okay (whatever this meant to me back then - I guess it is medium as I stated short or long finishes with other drams in that line-up).

    both the orange and the chocolate remain subtle
    and underline the noble character of this beautiful whisky

    yes! I am in heaven
    93 out of 100 points

    1st mouth, 1st finish, 2nd nose
    • Nose
      You cut up an orange
      Her sweet and sour juice runs over the wood
      fresh mint and chocolate melt in the pot
      You stir in the juice slowly
      a dash of bright 18y Macallan
      still warm, you try the mix
    • Taste
      smoke can be so tender and seductive
      soft and supple to your tongue
      the orange tingles
      on your palate develops the fine aroma of mint
      Chocolate accompanies her
      like a gentleman with flowers .. (I think he also has violets in the bouquet)
    • Finish
      Smoke and tobacco flow warming in the throat
      Orange and chocolate remain subtle
      fine woody bitterness makes the finish apart
      towards the end finest malt and fruit sweetness with tobacco note

    wonderful nose: oldschool, maritime-spicy, not as one-sided fruity as the DT 66er. Very fresh, a touch of smoke. Fresh with a little vanilla ice cream.
    Gaumn: silky-smooth aromas of exotic fruits. Passion fruit, spicy, creamy, some salt. Full-bodied with charming barrel flavors, also fresh, nice and light, spicysweet. A hint of perfume, vanilla. Very long and not a bit tired, becomes more and more fruity with time.
