  5. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The day i tried this at the distillery, the abv was measured at 50.5% 
    N: Light candy citrus and exquisite porridge. One drop of water releases more floral candy.
    T: Youthful and porridgy with green oak notes. Not sharp but rightly firm. Develops on crisp chocolate.
    F: Dry vanilla, a little sour - bourbon sour.
    C: John MacDonald was personally very pleased with this cask, hence why this particular cask was chosen for the distillery shop. I desperately hoped it would be a SC/CS version of the fabulous 1997[/2008] vintage WB. I was however more delighted with the second 1st release [confusing huh?] of the 1983 vintage WB.

    Scores a C+
