  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    While a nice grain, it is
    rather one-dimensional. The nose, palate and finish are all the same. I would
    not call this boring, but it is not exactly exciting either.
    • Nose
      A nose rife with wood shavings,
      hazelnuts, vanilla, a touch of nougat and some red fruit. Raspberries? The
      vanilla becomes a tad loud, making this dram lack depth. The oak rears its head
      as well, with a touch of cinnamon and a big helping of nutmeg. Fresh mint.
      After a few moments I get something that reminds me of butter milk.
    • Taste
      It is creamy on the palate.
      Spicy, too. Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The fruit gets more room to develop.
      The raspberries turn into strawberries. Yes, very sweet strawberries.
    • Finish
      The finish is quite long
      and spicy, but offers nothing new.

    Old grain whisky is never boring and I never tasted a bad one until now. 
    • Nose
      glue, paint, vanilla, wood spices and too many fruits to name.
      It's a very complex, powerfull nose.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, wood spices, very sweet. You really have to like vanilla if you want to enjoy this.
    • Finish
      a bit drying but not too much if you know how many years it has developed in wood.
