  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.

    Quality is high on this one. who said old blends cannot match aged malts, I have just tried the 1958 46 year Glen Garioch OB on pure enjoyment terms there is not much in it but this is 10% of the price and I still think that is a bit pricy.
    Good stuff
    • Nose
      92 92
      A nice, spicy toffee nose with hints of dark berries at first but let it develop in the glass as it keeps changing, faint medicinal notes emerge, very faint iodine, hints of peat but it also has a herbal side being slightly grassy with various green herbs thrown in, perhaps parsley & sage but difficult for me to decipher.
      A very good nose
    • Taste
      90 90
      Quite thick on the palate with a big peat/sherry combo washing across your taste buds mixed with malt loaf, raisins and brown bread crust.
      Slightly bitter with the oak coming out but heck its 50 years old so I will not hold that against it too much.
      The sherry takes centre stage with the spice with some nice jammy notes of raspberry & blackberry
    • Finish
      89 89
      Not the longest but pleasantly sweet and remaining spicy

  6. 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.

  7. Fudschafudscha 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.
