6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.65 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    great nose & taste and the alcohol is perfectly implemented. (60% wow) The finish is a bit dry and very unspectacular but all in all it is a dram I can recommend for its money.

    So I think so delicious. Balanced, relatively complex, but not perfect. I would appreciate him for around 50% alcohol and about 12 years.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    60.2%? It's a thing! The alcohol is really sensational involved here. In fact, I had already thought of Cragganmore, but unfortunately rejected the idea.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Immediately after pouring a soft mix of vanilla, yellow, cooked fruits and a little malt. Occupies the nose sustainably. Is there some smoke? Life does not change much there. Slightly sweeter and creamier maybe, pudding comes to mind, vanilla with peach. Citrus notes towards lime are there too. Heat intensifies the Zitrustouch something, is now also more in the direction of lemon.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Very sweet, but a kind of peculiar sweetness, I can not really classify. Stevia? Otherwise, he is quite strong, which suits him well. At the back comes some oak, also in the form of licorice and menthol. Then there is a slight spirit of spirits, which I do not like so much again.
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is relatively short and unspectacular. He warms but nice after.

    Powerful dram, but a bit too strong and dense

    CASK No. 37.100
    Sweet, fruity & mellow
    Teasing and playful
    Price £56.50 This is a gentle, subtle nose of chalky sweets, orchard fruits, Eve’s pudding, chocolate limes and a tin of assorted biscuits; cinnamon swirls and hints of ginger lie underneath. The palate is warm and spicy – still delivering mango and tutti frutti ice-cream, but now also liquorice and blackcurrant, chilli jam, lemon peel, toasted coconut, nutmeg and ginger – a mouth-feel of teasing, earthy spice tingles. The reduced nose seems more acidic – brambles, stewed apples, pear flan and ‘soor plooms’*. The palate now has raisins, apricot jam, charred roast chestnuts, humbugs and sweetie tobacco – warming and homely but frisky and frolicsome as well. (* sharp flavoured green, round boiled sweets)
