  1. LDB scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A decent performance for old age
    Of course, not really complex, but very successful in terms of taste. The perfect early summer dram, smooth in a positive sense.

      Homemade ice cream cone, Italian almond cake, apple jelly, honey, hmmm, yummy!
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the mouth, first a bit thin, unshelled almonds, malted coffee, later sweeter, so I imagine "barley sugar". Almost imperceptible alcohol.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Mild, very fast away.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant dram for sure, not very versatile or deep, but it has this attractive typical older style of malt. Although not very powerful, it ain't weak either. Nice experience.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fruity, typical older style, musty, oily. Some hints of raisins.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pretty smooth now, Raisins, some honey, pretty full, some sparkle. Maybe a touch of coffee, a bit musty and oily still.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Smooth, sweet and fruity, honey, raisins. Pretty drying mouthfeel, not particular long.

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Ok, harsher than its counterpart from the 1980s, but OBF is clear here. However, the surprisingly smoky finish compensates for the somewhat boring rest.
    • Nose
      Clear OBF, sweet, ripe apples, vanilla, simple but good.
    • Taste
      Quite bitter, almost bitter, OBF, slightly metallic, peppery, some apples in the background.
    • Finish
      Ripe bright fruits, some oak, sawdust, a hint of wood smoke.
