  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      This is oranges and mandarins galore, plus as a lot of other tropical fruits such as passion fruit, and even a little kiwi. And it has an incredible waxiness to boot. There's some furniture polish here too, as well as a touch of leather and sweet honey, with finally some aniseed. Very reminiscent of those undisclosed Speysiders you see pop up as of late. Except probably even more expressive, if that is possible.
    • Taste
      Lovely creamy texture. Again, very waxy. This is basically an exact copy of the nose, with room for oranges, mandarins and passion fruits. Some lemon marmalade here too. It does also have a slight bitterness, some oak (although surprisingly restrained for a whisky this age), as well as an interesting whisper of cough syrup.
    • Finish
      We return to the fruitier notes of this whisky now, as well as some oak and a whisper of tobacco.
