  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I don't really have cranberry there. For me it's more gooseberry, lemon tea and orange peel. In addition muesli and some bread.
    Interestingly, something like cranberry in the mouth. A bit flowery. In addition nice wood notes and some bread again.

    Quite decent whisky. But also nothing that will stay in your memory for a long time.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    2 cl sample - old school nose, quite fruity (yellow) and sweet - with water the cranberry appears, though less old school nose & taste. A sweet and minty aftertaste.

    N- Amazing fruit of cranberries and drunken cherries on a fresh cream cake. Creme cracker with nutella spreads. Sandalwood, warm oatmeal, peach and prunes candy. Fragrant of sour milk but evolved to hint of sweaty oak that can do without. (89/22)

    P- Mixing ripe berries and marmalade on a wooden laden. Powerful oak, hint of tamarind, chutney, all spices and naturally sweet. (92/23)

    F- Medium-long, nice creamy coat at the back palate, delicious dessert dram with waxy dry mouthfeel. Sweet but harmonized. (90/22)

    B/B- 92/22

    A lovely whisky.
    • Nose
      Subtle and soft notes of sweetness. Fruity notes like mandarin,cinnamon  syrup, melon, mint, basel and lime. Creaminess like coconut. Lovely.
    • Taste
      Fruity, Cranberries notes, lime notes. Also flowery. Candied orange peel, whiff of honey. Nice.
    • Finish
      For me : lovely long and subtle. Soft and warm. Complex? An old Strathmill but not to old.

  6. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Notes: An attractive combination of very subtle, soft and sweet aromas greeted the Panel. Juicy mandarin segments in cinnamon syrup, honeydew melon with mint, basil and lime, as well as passion fruit & coconut panna cotta - all perfectly knitted together. A fizzy sweetness on the palate like an old fashioned fresh cranberry Cosmopolitan served in a chilled cocktail glass with a lime twist as garnish. Be very careful when adding water. After a little splash, a bouquet of yellow roses was presented to us and the taste was spiced candied orange peel in a delightful light and delicious honey lime fruit salad.
