81.25/100 – Whiskybase (average from 4 member votes)
This Allt a’Bhainne is part of the 24 x 20cl bottles that make up the Carn Mor Vintage Collection. Distilled in 1995 and bottled in 2012, it’s from a limited edition of 290, Cask No: 125285. Non-chill filtered and no added colour, it’s just a pity there’s so little of it. But then it wouldn’t be so special if there was lots!
81.25/100 on Whiskybase is a good score where one member leaves these tasting notes:
Nose: Light and sweet. Starts grassy followed by honey and vanilla. Some yellow apples. Flowery notes as well.
Taste: Unexpectedly punchy for its 46%. Toasted oak. Sugared almonds. Cinnamon. Liquorice at the background.
Finish: Medium long. Dry. Lots of bitterness of pink grapefruit. Gingery. Pine and spearmint.
Comments: Excellent aperitif whisky for a Sunday afternoon.
