  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Metallic-y grapey malt.
    T: Same again and becoming decidedly wood-bitter. Also a touch solvent-y, though in a good way! Add a drop of linseed > turpentine and > swarfega thereafter.
    F: Wood-dense waxy > vanilla, but not as we know vanilla today [Jim].
    C: Though it’s rather clumsy, I’m also rather keen. More 5cl sample revisits to follow in due course.

    With plenty of miniatures and full bottles still appearing with regularity at auction for peanuts, let’s open another [miniature].

    N: Old skool=blended=OBE > TTR, some dunnage hosing and hessian cocoa powder, old man’s toffees & caramels, ginger cask, Demerara sugar,…. Just fine really.
    T: More hessian to open and plenty of OBE to follow with a narrow, somewhat flat-yet-pokey/grumpy/light-peppery one-shot delivery. With nice savoury-sweet sooty touches, It’s sometimes better with water, sometimes not.
    F: Short vague finish.
    C: Scores for the nose and some promise on the arrival - with water. The last sample was much better:
