  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    C: This came served in the smallest plastic cup, those they give you at a duty-free. The pour barely coated the bottom of a Glencairn glass for me to glean much. Nice and neat but I learned nothing about the Glasgow Distillery Company despite my keenness. I’ll try again another time.

     [Provisional score of 85]

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Not very impressed with this one, especially considering the price.
    • Nose
      Oaky sherry influences, old leather, shy and damp, maybe some sulphur, dates and creams, vanilla, modern style sherry casks.
    • Taste
      Leathery and honey dates, quite bitter, all you can get from seasoned sherry casks, raisins and berries.
    • Finish
      Short-medium, sherry, still a lot of leather, very smooth, not as bitter as the palate.

    • Nose
      Smoke and sherry enter a beautiful harmony. Spicy notes with pepper. Vanilla and smoke. Fruit. Pickled cherries. I can not find charred peach. A little marzipan and orange.
    • Taste
      Very soft and round. Smoke. Sherry. First sweet notes and then a little grapes. Zwendendrinn a light pepper note. Here I discover a bit of the charred notes paired with something sweet.
    • Finish
      Short sweet start goes over in a long dry slightly nutty touch. Harmonious wood note with spices.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    One hell of a whisky. Fabulous.
    • Nose
      Rich,round and soft with the spicy aroma of winter fruits and mulled wine.A complex synthesis  of vanilla pods,liquorice and preserved Maraschino cherries, against backdrop of lightly charred oak, whiff of oily peat.
    • Taste
      Silky smooth up front. Powerful, rich,and even more savoury than the nose suggested with the excitement zesty orange peel adding to the spice. Added water: more will come. Complex. 
    • Finish
      Exceptionally long and rich. Spicy orange with a hint of sherry in charred oak.

  5. moviemaniac scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    After 27 years in (European oak) casks, this dram still packs a punch! Loads of spices involved here, the fruity (sweet) and dark, chocolate and leather notes are there to balance everything out but they clearly play second fiddle. I did not expect that intensity from a 27-year-old whisky.Score: 86/100
