    Ether and strength and saltiness, great powerful whisky, no questions asked! Maybe in 2014 it was 80 points, but the additional aging in the bottle played its role and in 2021 it is the highest class !!!

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted alongside her sister cask # 20621.
    It's a little less integrated here and a little too green.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very powerful nose.
      We have a fairly green exoticism. Pineapple, lemon.
      Coriander seeds, white pepper, light spray.
      Green wood.
      Very light smoke, cold tobacco.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth we have caramel, a nice dose of salt.
      Lemon, lime, pineapple, guava.
      White pepper, varnish, green wood.
      Simple, powerful, and efficient.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long finish on a light smoke, white pepper, lemon, coriander, and a little redcurrant.
      Light caramel.

    Bright, burning, sweet and fiery whisky.

      Sweet, with spices, jam from apple, apricot, prunes, dried apricots, and varnish.
    • Taste
      Sweet, lacey and peppery taste.
    • Finish
      The same aftertaste.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nose: the same notes as 1991 by G & M (WB-ID 20744), malty, grassy, ​​oak, spicy, light fruit, some wax, a little less fresh, but a little sweeter.
    Mouth: strong, at 62% no miracle, then again spicy oak, and quite dry.
    Finish: harsh, some oak (is an ex-Bourbon barrel), slightly sweet, spicy and the peat smoke you have to look, barely there.

    Conclusion: Same style as the 1991 G & M, a little sweeter and a little less dry, also less peaty.
