15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.34 points

  1. el Gato scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Vanilla and toffee, in abundance. Fruity as well. Anise. Barrel influence. Tonic water! Soft spices.
    • Taste
      Oily feel. Toffee and vanilla continue. With times tonic water again. Citrusy now. Spicy, in particular cinnamon. Butter.
    • Finish
      A tad dry finish and quite long finish. More buttery with time. Still the tonic water. Spicy. Citrus in the very end

  2. HammerHead scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is promising, but taste and finish are a bit flat and bitterish. Considering the 28 years of maturation it's not that impressive.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Light, vanilla, biscuits, shortbread, buttery, toffee, baked apple, lemony citrus, a 'greenhouse' note, sawdust.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Oily, vanilla, sweet grain notes, cooked maize, some caramel, lemons, grapefruit, white pepper and bitter dusty wood which flattens the palet.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium: vanilla, a hoppy bitterness, sweet butter, grainy and bitter wood notes.
