  1. DenisL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Balance: 21 Pleasant and not cloying ... but somehow I'm tired of Speyside (I want ash-iodine-salt and smoked ... lack of Aila in the body) (87)
    • Nose
      Citruses and pastries ... spices ... cinnamon ... standing up grass and dry malt (22)
    • Taste
      The taste is sweet, oily ... with sharp notes of lemon pepper???? (22)
    • Finish
      Finish caramel, light wood viscosity and pepper ... grass ... pineapple candied fruit and cud ... violets !!! (22)

    Blind tasting: another lacklustre Linkwood
    • Nose
      cut grass, lemon, antiseptic cream, elastoplast
    • Taste
      a little metallic, dry savignon, some fruitiness coming through
    • Finish
      medium; a little heartburny

  7. detachedblue scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A refreshing speysider with a touch of soaps
    • Nose
      Like a bourbon, grassy, buttery, oily
    • Taste
      sweet and minty, buttery and soapy
    • Finish
      medium, floral and herbal

    N: Moorish creamy farmy barley straw with a custard-like quality.
    T: A sweet>fungal sipper with a likeable bolshy side. Spot on strength.
    F: Honeyed and creamy.
    C: Beautifully aged bourbon action.Scores a B[+]

    FROM WHISKY FUN BY SERGE:Two casks have been used here. Colour: gold. Nose: more activity, more butterscotch, more roundness, more cakes, more praline, more custard, more preserved apricots, more Danishes… With water: leaves, oils, waxes, little herbs (basil, coriander)… Mouth (neat): I’m afraid they nailed it, and that’s the power of small batches vs. single casks. More complexity, more preserved fruits, syrups, honeys, quinces, bergamots, overripe apples, light fudge, brioche… My, this is good! With water: indeed. Rosehips and hawthorn teas. Finish: medium, rather more herbal. Green fruits (pears, kiwis, rhubarb…) A touch of coconut on the aftertaste. Oh and vanilla and honey. Comments: small batches, big whiskies. Provided those small batches are small indeed (I mean, not like 60,000 bottles, eh).

    SGP:551 - 89 points.

  10. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Cadenhead notes:

    Nose: Mint leaves, pencil shavings, aniseed, light dunnage warehouse.

    Taste: Coconut, highland toffee, bung cloth and dunnage floor present.

    Finish: Going back to nose with fresher notes and lemon zest.
