2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.50 points

  1. Scotchathome scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Very complex scotch with a lot of different layers, smooth, velvety with a lot of depht.
    One of the best/most complex whiskys i’ve ever tasted.
    Bought it on a auction for 210 euros.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Smells a little like on old sherry/port, quite sweet in the nose, fruity,
    • Taste
      88 88
      Tastes a little less fruity as it smells, soft oaky fruit taste at first which follows into a velvetty dried fruit combined with a little smokeyness
    • Finish
      91 91
      Finish is rather spiced, smoked and you can really taste the elderly of the scotch

  2. mds51 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      91 91
      Like an extremely old port (30 years +), dark red fruits, raisins, prunes, some grassiness in the background and the typical old bottle flavor.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Contrary to the nose, the red fruits are not as present as in the nose. Salted caramel, gooseberries, light smoke, subtle spice.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long. The sweet and light spice remain.
