  4. Bam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Like, dominant vanilla and lemon, but behind it both in the nose, and on the palate, behind these two flavors still much to discover. Alcohol is very well integrated, it also tolerates water very well.
    • Nose
      Strong vanilla and lemon. Very sweet and slightly salty. Behind it lies a slightly sour yeast dough note, together with malt and various garden herbs. Butter biscuits, banana and almonds.
    • Taste
      Strong start, silky mouthfeel. Starts very sweet with caramel, brown sugar and vanilla, then again very strong lemon, also that is very sweet, but at the same time also salty. The banana comes again. Then the oak slowly announces itself and becomes stronger and stronger.
    • Finish
      Medium. White pepper, oak, dark chocolate, mint and lemon. Astringent.

  5. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Densely structured and at first salty and spicy and a bit like pine nuts. Will be more fragrant and quite complex. Again salt but also butter and bouillon cubes.
      With water fresher and lemony. Yeast, bouillon cubes, salt, butter and overall tightly structured.
    • Taste
      Complex and wonderfully composed. Ripe vanilla, salt, pine nuts, oak, but again hints of bouillon cubes and grass.
      With water: grassy, citric and quite metallic. In addition, grass and a complex Floralität.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, salty, roasted and full of spicy oak.

    • Taste
      Honey, apple, melon, peach, cereals, lime, grapefruit, some coffee, some wood, some pepper

  7. voodoochile scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very nice and fruity Whisky easy to enjoy on a warm summer evening.
    • Nose
      a fruit platter ripe bananas, vanilla and some pineapples. My friend was reminded of white gummy bears.
    • Taste
      The fruit continues to be dominant but the alcohol comes through. Water takes the edge of the alcohol but the fruits get a bit mashed with water. This makes the Whisky difficult. If they took the edge out of the alcohol i´d have given one or two points more and thought about buying a bottle.
    • Finish
      Long and fruity

  9. Implar scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Needs some time to open up. The regular 14 is more quaffable.
    • Nose
      Lightly floral, fruity (apples), some barley. Less soapy than the regular 14 year old
    • Taste
      Quite strong arrival, woodspice, vanilla & honey.
    • Finish
      Some woodspice again, slight pepper, medium long.
