  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Strangely a bit Jenever/Gin like. It is somewhat dusty and wood driven on the nose, as well as some plastic, new sport shoes smell, if you catch my drift. On the mouth we have a bit of a hard spirit (after all these years?) with again some rubber plastic tones. The finish is surprisingly salty.

    steady entry, but really - 28 years to produce this?!
    • Nose
      82 82
      seems like a refill to me - yeah definite refill on the nose after this age. Even at 50% still some spikiness. Slightly artificial chemical in this - a slight inauthenticity

      a pleasant spiciness as the spirit rolls in, in its typical refill sherry way. Not much to fault here. It slots very well into that refill sherry mould, but did it really need to be 28 years?
    • Finish
      81 81
      medium; fair fight between alcohol and sherry

    N: Raisin distillate with a little copper. 
    T: This one’s a fighter armed with a copper spud gun. More raisins on the turn
    F: Bready with metal-y raisins.
    C: An academically interesting natural copper still=distillate driven malt, one i like. Does anyone else put Tormore & Fettercairn in a similar camp, stylistically speaking?Scores a C+
