  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Slightly tired - unexciting - didn't make me cartwheel (on reflection a good thing as I'd have tipped it everywhere and gone too off for being a bloody old fool). The bottle is quite impressive - like an architectural tear drop.

      Old leather coats, dry sherry notes.

      Difficult to describe - the alcohol is light (doesn't take your breath away), but then it develops with a slightly salty, tart flavour. A slightly tired feel to the whisky.
    • Finish

      It lingers - more a slow death than anything, although perfectly pleasant.

  2. hs305 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    [January, 2006]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.  I bought a different bottle (75cl and 43% abv) for 13 Euro in October, 2004.  It was bottled before 1991 (75cl bottle imported from Italy).In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  I took no notes.
