  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The longer Molt stands in an unfinished botle (with a half botla) - the more manifest ...
    Nose: beautiful! smoked, fruit, salt, polish ... The smell of a wardrobe characteristic of old molts ...
    Taste: well balanced, but not enough ... body (perhaps this is because of my perception of the fortress) ...
    Finish: average duration, pleasant, drinking

  2. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Balance (22)
    Very drinkable blend, probably was an excellent whiskey for every day (86)
    • Nose
      Pleasant, smooth fruits and wax ... apples, pastries, lacquered wood ... after standing a little smoky prunes ... ... in the distance echoes of the farm (22)
    • Taste
      Fruits, pepper, wax ... a little salt. There is not enough body (21)
    • Finish
      The finish is soft, creamy, caramel and dried fruit with wax, a bit of grain stress ... pale prunes and vegetables (21)

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is nice stuff, sweet but with enough depth on the palate to make it interesting.

    Certainly a notch above J&B of today.Nice nose, fragrant.

    [February, 2014]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.  I bought this bottle for 16 Euro in May, 2008.  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.  My notes state it is easy drinkable (I had a lot of single malt that were weaker)...
