  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted during an Adelpi Tasting, September 2016

    Nose: Pear, flowers, honey and marzipan  

    Taste: definitely a bourbon cask: very pleasant and subtile, candy-like with a spicy edge.

    Finish is a bit short but very sweet

  2. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wow! What a whisky! A true quality fruitbomb, which you don't see often anymore (not this balanced and mature anyway). This whisky comes close to (dare I say it?) Benriach 1976. It is not as good as that legendary bottles, but the profile fits, and it is not far off in quality. Very impressive for a 20 year old dram.
    • Nose
      A fruitbomb at first sniff! Wow! So much going on right away. The first sniff is apples, but almost immediatly it is pushed aside by a shitload of tropical fruits. Very distinctly coconut, but also pineapple (those soft ripe ones) and galia melon. This is just great. Some spices there as well, cinnemon and even pepper. The great fruit flavours are being supported by beautiful oaky undertones. A very rich well balanced nosed.
    • Taste
      Can it be even better? A very pleasant mouthfeel. The oiliness and ABV are spot on with this dram. Big flavours of coconut, pineapple, oak and pepper.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately the flavours don't stay as long in my mouth as I'd wish. It's still great, but the finish gets very thin, quite fast.
