  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Calm, warm and very sweet, multi-layered release
    • Nose
      90 90
      The smell feels dusty and slightly musty, as if you have caught dusty dried fruits. The bright smell of prunes, dried cloves and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweet, even a little cloying taste. The dead foliage is felt both in the aroma and in the taste. Prunes and dried apricots.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The aftertaste is sweet, tart, and dusty. This jam from the plum with black tea.

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Expecting more, but still an old beautiful, elegant cask.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very mellow, a bit closed, pizza dough, tomato puree, fresh cream, parsley, polished wood, sweet milk chocolate, a touch of sulfur, become more herbal, some celery.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Huge, mouth-coating, custards and honey. Elegant, vanilla, top-notch wood, very smooth.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium, a whiff of smoked dates, walnuts, old sherry.
