  1. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A few years back I tried this one, and now it's broter the 38yr, 44,7%.
    This one was great to discover on the nose, lovely scents of old dusty fruit, dried flowers and leaves. After that it went down with a very oaky and sweet palate.

    The nose of this whisky is superb, rich and well layered, beautiful. The palate lacks some oomph and complexity. There is surprisingly little bitterness, tannins and oak in this dram. The rather short finish leaves me longing for more power, length and complexity. I could nose this dram for hours and never get bored with it.
