  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Velvety and soft on the nose, powerful yet soft and harmonious in the taste. I can not describe this bottling better. Sweet whole milk and creamy caramel are present all the time, the subtle sharpness is a good contrast. This malt is certainly nothing special, but a pleasant all-day dram. I like it ;-)

    • Nose
      Velvety and soft, the malt rises from the glass. Subtle peach aroma and a hint of dark vanilla show up, sugar and caramel combine with milk chocolate to form a sweet melange. Undefinable sweetness and fruity hints dominate in the foreground, the nose seems rather one-dimensional at the moment. Velvety apricots and peaches play with sweet milk chocolate and some roasted aromas. The alcohol is mild and harmoniously integrated, creating a subtle aroma of butter biscuits and pastries. Timidly the mild and sweet aromas are in the air ...
    • Taste
      The first sip runs powerfully over the tongue in the throat. Cocoa powder blends with greasy whole milk to Kaba, a slight pinch of freshly brewed coffee blows over. Now, after the first sip has faded away, intense coffee aroma rests in the mouth. Creamy begins the second sip and ends slightly burning and sharp on the tip of the tongue. Coffee powder dusts on the tongue, sweet cocoa powder and dried fruits mix to a spicy mouthfeel. Again, caramel and butter biscuits come into their own. Milk chocolate and chopped hazelnuts mix together. Creamy and with a hint of butter, the aromas rest on the tongue and thus transcend into the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Powerful and warming the reverberation starts his work. A pinch of white pepper burns slightly on the tip of the tongue, creamy full-bodied notes rest in the back of the tongue. Creamy and velvety, dried berries and caramel exude a cozy warmth, with spicy wood tones in the background. Light walnut aroma develops and mixes with milk chocolate and toffee to a creamy mass. The sweet flavors are present on the palate and on the tongue for a long time before slowly fading away, really slowly.

    Nose: Wow, I like it! Floral, fruity, flower meadow in late spring, mango, papaya, light honey.
    Aroma: Something green meadow, citrus fruits, honey. Sweet, take two sweets.
    Finish: medium length, furry tongue, quince, pepper, some oak comes through.

    It's worth 88 points to me, could even be sweeter in my mouth for my taste.

    BLIND TASTING

    N: Prosecco, pear, honey, again sourish sparkling notes, quite one-dimensional
    M: Very creamy in the mouth, almost creamy, sweet vanilla, good oak notes that drift off the spicy very slowly into the bitterness. Minimal pepper tickles cheeks and tongue tip.
    A: Sourish notes stay behind the tongue. Oak occupies cheek and throat. Pretty nice finish

    Conclusion: Easy drinking whisky, the one not too demanding, but not really bad. Tip: Glen Keith 14 years by 50%
