  6. LiquidThoughts did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not bad, but not outstanding, a nice Everdaydram for people who like it classic, but just too expensive ...

      Hay, yeast, apricot, mango and apple, vanilla and noticeable honey, all a bit sweetish, nice nose

      Beautiful malt and oak, oldschool in the respect, orange, hay and herbal honey, sweet, bitter but with black pepper and tannins, apricot with kernel
    • Finish
      Medium to long, pepper, malt, tannins, oak chips, hay, grapefruit

  8. maltaholic scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very good.
    • Nose
      There is a very slight, sweet note floating above the glass. Almost like apricot. But also oak, a little vanilla. Great aroma.
    • Taste
      Oh, purebred. Oak barrel - and nothing else. Rarely so perceived these pure wood notes.
    • Finish
      Pretty long in the finish. Only later some spicy aromas.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    N- Sugar jar, with hints of hay. Almond. Direct and one dimension. Simple, pleasant but lacking.

    P- Good texture, rich on dried fruits, cookies. Sweetness oriented.

    F- Short-medium. deep fruitiness alongside oak spices and whiff of vanilla.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
