  1. Ptahr scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I really liked the nose. In terms of taste, however, the whisky was much too peppery and woody for me.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Tends to go in the same direction as the 13! but much better and more mature. Great whisky.
    • Nose
      Great ripe notes, flowers, honey, yellow fruits, mirabelle plums, honeydew melon, ripe apple on the nose. Delicious fruit compote with a ripe, older note and malty honey.
    • Taste
      In the mouth the melon and mirabelle plums again, stronger and woodier than expected. Still nice on honey and fruit.
    • Finish
      Finish: tart oak with sweet, spicy honey, ripe yellow fruits and a nice feeling of age.

    N: Modestly yet assuredly sweet/sour.
    T: Reconfirmed sweet-to-sour dunnage-y/barley-fruity-honeyed development.
    F: Long, soft, fresh and with yet more sweet/sour action.
    C: Another high quality, desirably [slow]-aged bourbon cask Speysider. It’s been quite the festival for this style.Scores a B[-]
