Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

  • Nose
    92 92
    Damp and musty initially, but on second nosing, it's like one of those old Bowmore De Luxe dumpies. Obvious fruits like mangos and apricots, with a lot of candied ginger.
  • Taste
    88 88
    Very good, old juice! Dusty old books and documents. Tropical fruits with a heaping serving of buttered mash potato. No fireworks though, with low ABV.
  • Finish
    86 86
    Weak ending, but still hints at its tropical and dusty core.

Dram Dracula scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

  • Nose
    91 91
    Tropical fruitiness -- more sour initially, and then the more classic tropical fruits (not very overt, mind you). Guava, mangosteen, lemongrass, with hints of earthiness -- perhaps some freshly chopped daikon or even potatoes. Minty fresh. A bit floral. An impressive nose.
  • Taste
    88 88
    Old dusty. Underpowered. A bit chalky. Still minty fresh, but doesn't have the sticky, dense fruitiness that exemplifies some recent great Teeling and Redbreast (not that I expect this to, of course). The low ABV and oldness usually mean the nose is usually much better than the palate, and this is the case here.
  • Finish
    86 86
    Some dried herbs at the end. Cloves and cinnamon. Possible that the ABV has dropped below 40%.

    Thank you for the experience, MaltMartin!

Pleasant dram. Expensive for what it is but purchased on the sentiment of it.
  • Nose
    84 84
    Fresh, lively and quite sweet initially on the nose, quite spirity but not overwhelming so. Wine/grape notes, buttery toffee and marzipan with a sugared barley, peat is nearly non exsistent if there at all, mild citrus, and light floral note. Very pleasant.
  • Taste
    83 83
    Really decent mouthfeel, lovely oily dram. Peat makes itself known, nice spice, with a more prevalent toffee in the mouth.Water brings out more citrus and wood char note.
  • Finish
    83 83
    Decent medium finish. Liquorice and spice linger.
