9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.25 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very young-looking SR, definitely not like> 40y, can already understand why he is one of the poorest SR, still top quality.
    • Nose
      Pure honey, mango, papaya, honeydew melon, pear, green apple, banana, fennel, lavender, vanilla, marzipan and macadamia nut, grapefruit and citrus notes
    • Taste
      Sweet-bitter, acacia honey, rosemary, fennel, green tea, marzipan, white pepper, wasabi, honeydew melon, mango, papaya, unripe banana, pear with seeds, bitter, light malt, so far the most recent Speyside region I've had, brighter tobacco
    • Finish
      Green apple with seeds, pear with shell, bitter malt, medium to long

    Another great Speyside dram

    For me this bottle is somehow totally underrated vs the other 1973/75 Speysider which are at 92,xx where this only is at 90,xx

    This dram is different from the others and maybe not as tropical but still very special and nice. I like it a lot and is on the same level as the others!
    • Nose
      pineapple, banana, grapefruit. Great tropical nose which is a bit more citrus than the WD & other TWA I had so far 
    • Taste
      difficult to describe as it is still tropical but has a bit of mango and "Kaktus" ice-cream which is popular in Germany

      Completely different from the other Speysider I had!
    • Finish
      Excellent tropical finish where the banana takes the lead. Lovely !

    As expected another Speysider fruit bomb from 1973, usually I would rate it even higher like many other great Speysiders of the same vintage but this one was probably a little bit tired as I tasted from a sample - anyhow still great!
    • Nose
      94 94
      Intense, tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, honey, spices, little pepper, hints of vanilla, little citric - excellent!
    • Taste
      94 94
      Little punchy, sirupy, good sweetness, very fruity, the whole tropical fruit basket, spices, pepper, little honey - fantastic!
    • Finish
      93 93
      Medium long, warm, fruity, little spicy - great!

  5. wncvirus scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Nose: A lot of fruit, pears, peaches, mangoes, dried apricots.
    Taste: From the first gulp a large dose of fruit with the addition of honey and light wax. Powerful aroma. In addition, very pleasant to receive.
    Score 92 Long fruity finish with a wax additive. Beautiful whisky. very rich in taste. I definitely think I can recommend it to try.
