  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    He is gentle and he is old, no question. Everything was consistent, but everything was also reserved. Really good whiskey, but no real revelation. Maybe today was just not the day.
    • Nose
      Quite reserved, but what arrives smells pleasingly old, old oak, slightly rustic, the old Grain is also to smell. Especially woody flavors without it being too much.
    • Taste
      Spicy, sweetish, raisins, dried fruit, some vanilla, tart oak, tannins, spices
    • Finish
      Sweet and spicy, a lot of oak, menthol, herb and also the raisins and dried fruits come by.

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A nice whiskey that does not hide its age. But he did not really convince me, because I do not have the tension. There I find z. For example, the Invergordons of Mancarella are more exciting.
    • Nose
      The nose is quite reminiscent of an old grain. But not just colorful, but also slightly darker than, for example, the Mancarella Invergordons.
      Linseed oil / wood oil. Black bread. Molasses. After a while you will see some rotten or fermented red grapes. Some hairspray. Tobacco. Modriges wood.
    • Taste
      Initially sweet and sour notes. Forest honey. Immature blackberries. Rum raisins. Black tea with a splash of lemon. Then it gets spicier. The oak comes and also a certain tingle. Short comes a little soy sauce. Salted caramel. Dark chocolate. Leather.
    • Finish
      Votes Omen. Tabak. China Rinde. Salzlakritze.

  3. pippo g scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Interesting nose, heavy old sherry and oak, dark fruits, no alcohol

    Mouth: quite consistent with the nose, soft and oily, with some bitterness between the grain and the oak.

    Finish: the bitterness becomes stronger, overall unexpectedly short.

    Conclusion: nice, soft, oily whiskey, which feels younger compared to the age with a unfortunately very short finish.

  9. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur


    N: Utterly moorish nose that comes from great age & blending. 
    T: Lots of consolidated layers.
    F: Swimmingly concentrated/blended initially but one that comes out just right at the end.
    C: A strong finish helps maintain overall balance.Scores a B

    In terms of pleasure it's 100%. The nose is his Achilles heel, the rest is really pretty, although I would have liked a little more oak.
    Enthusiasm 4/5
    Whiskey n ° 1415
    • Nose
      Sweet and deep, on caramel and vanilla. More on the grain than the malt apparently. No woody notes. Cooked fruits, later roasted almonds. Mature, melted. A little flat. A hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Very sweet attack. Mellous to fall! Juicy wish. Still no wood, some discreet spices at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Winey, stewed fruit, superb. Long and subtly bitter - finally an indirect trace of oak.
