  1. Dr. Beach scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    All three nose-palate-finish tell a perfect late autumn/christmas story.

    Like walking through heather hills after a heavy rain on a winter´s day while approaching a christmas bakery. Fine 91 points :-)
    • Nose
      Oh that´s different! Apricots (boiled compote) with the full citrus fruit assembly in the background. Spicy – maybe lavendel or (wet) heather. Very nicely balanced. A touch of sulky old french wine caves/cellars. From a sweet & spicy sherry cask? Very complex with nicely integrated alcohol. Again a perfect composure!

      With water: Oh even opens up the above described impressions. Try with water!!!
    • Taste
      Oh yes the same complex spiciness. I keep the heather and lavendel impressions. A touch of white pepper added.

      Oh and malty – imaginations of gingerbread and christmas bakery.

      This is a christmas dram!

      With water: Gets even more accommodating
    • Finish
      Finish:

      Jihaaa this one stays until New Year. At least! Very, very long finish and the complex spiciness stays on and on.

      The winner!

      With water: Pleasing! Even nicier. That´s a ladies dram!

    Geilo
    • Nose
      Very ripe, old wooden box, the fresh Arran ginger is directly noticeable, citrus notes, sweet orange, slightly wet oak, the wet is getting more beautiful
    • Taste
      Wonderfully sweet and again very ripe, again the slightly peppery ginger, everything wonderfully integrated, very pleasant mouthfeel, spicy orange juice
    • Finish
      Sweet oak, no bitterness, orange sweetness
