37 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.10 points

  1. Bam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      82 82
      Bit of whey, vanilla, ice cream and butter and fatty cake. This becomes less dominant over time
    • Taste
      85 85
      muffins with blueberries. chocolate sprinkles
    • Finish
      84 84
      fatty, like an oliebol (deepfried dough with raisins, served with powdered sugar)

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Never thought I'd say this, but I like the NAS better. In comparison, the "Bothy" (batch 1) is much more to my liking.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Acidic-vegetal, with some soft maritime notes. The Arran character is palpable: tart citrus alongside spicy arboreal aromas (pine), but somehow it's a bit muddled and vague and less fresh than I'd hoped. Lots of resinous and herbal notes from the (pretty dominant) wood: tree bark, sap, camphor.
    • Taste
      77 77
      The nose had some nice aspects, but this is where it loses me. Too much "dark", musty oak for a release that should boast lively, fruity bourbon freshness. Very bitter and uncompromising from start to finish. Water makes it a lot more peppery, but not any sweeter.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Bitter lemon.
