  1. Lorion scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    I approached with great interest and unfortunately was disappointed. 75 points for the palate, 82 for the nose - a total of 79.
    • Nose
      Interesting and really something else. Walnut, some sweetness, some herbs.
    • Taste
      Very bitter, walnut also here, but too bitter for my feelings. If you get used to it, it's okay. But no more, the nose promised something interesting, the palate disappointed.
    • Finish
      The bitter walnut stays for a long time, the heat only for a short time.

  3. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    fresh hazelnuts, a little bitter, malt, a little floral too, subtle but pleasant
    mouth:
    the irremediably weak point, the hazelnut turns into bitter almond, a little earthy too, the acid fruits on the peach, the slightly rancid "wine", and peppery spices.
    Final:
    fairly short, which disappears quickly, lacks consistency.
    a disappointment compared to the 5 year basic clearach, and even more compared to the 7 year old !!
