Other reviews... This comes from left over stocks from Cunard’s liner Queen Elizabeth II. Colour: pale gold. Nose: much nicer now, the oak is much nicer, there are whiffs of mint and earl grey tea, kumquats, roots… Really a, err… nice one. Mouth: the same is happening here, it’s much livelier than the 10 yo . Enjoyable oakiness, notes of liquorice, a little orange water (baklavas), orange marmalade, praline, dried lychees. Good, for sure. Finish: also longer, candied, nutty, with quite some tannins… An Auchentoshan ‘retour des Indes’? Lucky cruise passengers, they were spoilt… 79 points. - whiskyfun.com
