  3. Koning scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It's a minimalistic version of the 1995 Tobermory (21 years old, Cadenhead. WB: 91685) which I enjoyed very much. This one is not at the same level unfortunately.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Mineral, light smoke, ozone and a bit maritime (mussels). Beyond that apples, liquorice root and pak choi (that earthy korean vegetable).
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rather full and creamy. Salty/maritime with citrus fruits, apricot, green apple and speculoos. Also a bit earthy and dirty, with just a trace of smoke.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Quite austere: mineral water, lemon curd, a touch of smoke and sulfur and an impression of old fashioned casette tape!

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Not much interesting, you would have expected something better. Although now we can see what kind of casks are being used for a quick finish. This one should have been as well.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Perfume, some hay, straw and a hint of alcohol. There is an strange off-note in the background, which I find hard to describe.
      Not a very interesting nose.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Sweet arrival. Some grass notes, hint of caramel, vanilla. Some citrus in the background.
      After a while the caramel makes its way forward.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length. Classic bourbon influences. like caramel, wood and some cookie dough.

  6. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well after 20 years of maturation this is nothing more then a refill disappointment. Not going to spoil a lot of words on this. Should have been re-racked to a more active cask. This one was past dead already I guess.
    • Nose
      Closed, earthy and even a bit sulphur. The nose is a bit dull and not very outspoken. Not a very pleasant nose imho and besides that it’s hard to describe specific flavors.
    • Taste
      Thin, sweet and dry. Also the taste is not very outspoken and even a bit tasteless. There is some fruit, vanilla and licorice maybe but it doesn’t convince me at all.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately the finish doesn’t cut it either. It stays rather dull. There is mud and a pleasant spiciness in the finish but this doesn’t save the day.

  10. Tauti scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I had the bottle open a little longer now and I must say that the whisky did not harm this. The alcohol tips were smoothed and accordingly, the tasting notes are also to understand the longer open bottle.
    • Nose
      Grassy and slightly wet straw, a very small amount of peat is also there. Then, citrus and apple, I smell something flowery.
    • Taste
      A malty sweetness at the beginning, then citrus and vanilla as well as an oily-nutty saltiness. Go for me in the direction of salted peanuts.
    • Finish
      medium, first slightly sour and voluminous (oily) a slight tingling with salt and pepper remains.
