A rich and well-rounded malt that doesn’t show its age. It is easy to drink but still pretty complex. The nose is splendid, but the palate can’t quite keep up. – Rating: 83/100

Rather similar to the 25 year TheWhiskyCask bottling, but it has given a bit too much alcohol to the angels. But this is still a quite enjoyable dram. – Rating: 82/100

Very fruity but also with a nice amount of aromatic spices. This is an excellent dram full of flavours, and it’s the perfect compainon for relaxing on a mild summer evening. – Rating: 87/100

The malt has a great nose and a quite a complex palate but could use a little more impact. – Score: 81/100
