  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Typical old Bourbon barrel Speyside beer that needs some water to reveal its excellent quality - appetizing, complex and very balanced
    • Nose
      At first surprisingly alcoholic, floral, mirabelles, honey and ripe Zuckeraprikosen, nutmeg and cloves, some fruit bread, apple pie.
      With the addition of water, the fruit flavors explode, honey and vanilla appear more pronounced, marzipan and ripe pear, chamomile - the complexity can now penetrate
    • Taste
      yellow plums, thickened pear compote with cloves and cinnamon - full bodied and very round with water, nevertheless a strong proportion of oak
    • Finish
      long, fruity and a lot of oak

  8. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    N: Sweet - malty=toffee sweet with oak pepper and some fauna notes
    T: Sweet with a long ‘bobs up and down’ travel
    F: Again, long and sweet but never saccharin. Plenty of wood throughout. Finishes on sweet liquorice>aniseed
    C: Lovely cask this one, thumbs up SMWS. Seriously easy to drink even at cask strength

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Setting sun on honeyed sandstone

    Flavour profile: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    The nose was old and complex, with musky floral, sweet
    perfumes, vanilla, blackcurrant, wine gums, honey on toast and quite a bit of
    apple (apple pie, oak-aged Calvados). The palate was very tasty indeed – flans
    and pastries bursting with apple, pear, blackcurrant, plum and almond, but with
    a nice balancing heat of ginger, cinnamon, clove and tobacco. The reduced nose
    was deliciously exotic – apple and plum orchards (fruits and blossoms), acacia
    honey and Anton Berg chocolates (plum, marzipan and dark chocolate). The
    reduced palate had similar flavours and an impressive range from juicy lychees
    to dry, spicy wood.

    Drinking tip: Could accompany dessert, or just for
    reflective, contemplative moods.
