  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Old and solid, sweet and spicy with wonderful wood tones. This ancient blended Scotch whiskey is extremely easy to drink and makes you want another dram. Great fabric, I like it very much!

    • Nose
      Cloudy amber shines in the premium snifter, dried grapes and berries rise majestically, caramelized sugar mixes with dark roasted aromas. Malty grain notes, a hint of meadow herbs, old and spicy wooden elements play with a hint of apricot and peach, minimally mint and menthol freshness.
    • Taste
      Slightly smoky spicy wood tones and burnt sugar pour over the tongue, meadow herbs and hints of tasty cough syrup, sugar beets and old raisins followed by the abrasion of dried grapefruit peels, smoked wood chips and minimal peat ensure a slightly bitter and bitter character. The next sip flows creamy through the mouth, dark dried fruits, old caramel and toffee, crumbs of dark chocolate and fresh mint. There is a wonderful herbal and spice note above everything.
    • Finish
      Spicy, dark wood rests on the palate, the sweet cough juice note with many herbs returns, sweet raisins and other dried fruits combine with old mint and menthol to create a medium-long and voluminous aftertaste.

  4. 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.

    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

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nice increase from 35y, more harmonious, rounder, full, unfortunately the finish is still short for the age but just a little better than with the 35y. All in all, I had more exciting and tasty blended malts in the 20-35y range for half the money.
    • Nose
      Hmm, much more aromatic and harmonious than the 35y brother, reminds something of old hibikis with the intense sweetness and yet freshness and elegance instead of pampiness, honeydew melon, apricot, vanilla, toffee, lychee, fresh meadow honey, some molasses, rosemary, fennel, anise , all three but less herbal-spicy than more than just a refreshing note like a high-quality scented candle
    • Taste
      Sweet and dry approach, the yellow fruits of the nose, a crisp but pleasant old oak is there from the start, but even as a not so oak fan it stays perfectly in place and rather forms a nice surface for the fruits and herbs above , Apricots with a core, peach, honeydew melon, lychee, orange peel, lavender, rosemary, some fennel and anise, green tea, a hint of eucalyptus, some brown sugar and coffee
    • Finish
      Coffee, fruit seeds, rosemary, oregano, dried fruit, teen notes, medium to long

  9. grinface scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I really liked that. I'd probably like to have more of it. Aging in dignity, no properties that dull everything else. Still expressive. Very, very tasty. Full review (in German): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/10/18/ueber-100-jahre-im-glas/
