  4. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    not too intricate but unreal tasty
    • Nose
      90 90
      Initially, a person who had not yet breathed felt a hint of glue, like many whisky of those years, as well as pure honey in all its manifestations. Very sweet and thick nose, a little tree
    • Taste
      89 89
      Again honey, but already a little more wood and a little pepper
    • Finish
      88 88
      The tree begins to dominate significantly

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    70s bunna where ... did we take the time?
    • Nose
      walnut, sherry, citrus, vanilla, wood, mildew, leather
      a little old glue, almost ether, caramel back
      all mixed up and that turns in the nose
    • Taste
      rather peppery spices
      a grassy side
      glue, almond, sherry is less present, honeyed sensation, velvety, fruit more on a compote than on a cooked fruit or macerated
      vine feeling at the end, a little iodine too
    • Finish
      average on the same scents, with velvety in the mouth that persists and the distant characteristics of a moist wood and cooked fruit cooled.
