    • Nose
      Very fresh and mineral, it is first of all its youth and its grassy side that manifests itself, with a hint of toffee. Then, in addition - and gradually replacing, we have zests of citrus, first light and then more supported. We are in Ben Nevis style for the best effect.
    • Taste
      The mouth is very consistent with the nose, with a tangy side but also creamy, candy fruit, but still in this restraint and subtlety, without ever pouring into ostentatious gluttony, say.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length but we find all the aforementioned sensations. A real success!

      Enthusiasm 4/5

  3. Hemdl scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    I was already surprised the days that in the whisky base only 5 (including my bottle) of a total of 260 eingepflegte bottles were marked as open / empty. An indication of a typical collector's whisky, which does not justify the price and dusted as a supposed "investment" on the shelves. In this case, but in my opinion absolutely correct. The nose is weak, the taste of the malt in view of the circumstances very neat, but in total just for the issue price 100+ Euro too little, if the malt to appeal to the gentle connoisseurs.
    • Nose
      Pretty hard fare. Young, unbalanced and with a strong new-make character. At the same time a sourish fruity note, which almost crushes the undoubtedly vanilla and fully ripe pears. Just the pear is very strong and I like it a lot, but the interaction is very, very expandable. The missing age or lack of maturity here for my taste too strong.
    • Taste
      Surprise - the taste is significantly better than the nose. Sweet vanilla and again the ripe pears, actually a few (immature, green) bananas. Light oak, which slightly increases its presence in the mouth and subtle smoke. Again, not free of youthful notes, but much improved and quite pleasing. Removes yet another aroma, which reminds me of a fruit-picker, which luckily can be found in the background. Overall, a pleasant oily mouth feel without alcoholic sharpness that fits. But I miss every trace of the sherry casks.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly long for a malt of this age, although not without blemishes. Slightly astringent, a lot of dry oak and some licorice. At the end a bit of smoke, but also remains discreet here.
