  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Great distillate driven whisky. I love the fruitiness, but it has even more to offer than simply being a very fruity whisky. Wonderful!
    • Nose
      Very light, with hint of fruit (white grapes, green apple peel, apple juice) and a layer of grassiness, followed by a whisper of aniseed. It has a slightly chalky quality too. A light acidity, as well as a subtle waxiness rounds everything out. I love this.
    • Taste
      Lemon and grapefruit, as well as green apples and sweet apricots and nectarines. There's even some charred oak and a hint of smoke. Did I mention that I love this?
    • Finish
      Chalky, with some drops of apple juice. Medium in length.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Had this one in a blind tasting. Very fresh and fruity, with a slight bitter touch in taste. Very good and pleasant whisky for sure.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity, yellow fruits, citrus, some hints of cocos as well. Very full scent.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pretty strong, sparkling, yellow fruits, tropical fruit, citrus. A very slight bitter edge.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Now a bit more smooth, yet warming in the belly. Yellow fruits with a bitter touch, grapefruits, middle long.

  6. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of the ‘HWF Thuisfestival’ edition 4 line up
    • Nose
      Light and delicate nose. Beautifully subtle matured! White grapes, apple, apple juice, chalk and some lime peel. Absolutely a classy nose
    • Taste
      Soft, oily and again chalky. Beautiful palate. I absolutely adore this kind of style. It’s sweet & sour. Quite some citrus fruit influence here and a wee hint of dried oak. Subtle spices also are available. Spices like cinnamon and licorice. Also there is a wee hint of mint in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasing. Great combination of both nose and palate! Canned tropical fruit syrup combined with fresh/sour citrus fruits (very grapefruit/pomelo like) and oakwood shavings.

    A real summer whisky! Combines a grassy and fruity freshness with sweetness (coconut, passion fruit, dark chocolate). Slightly spicy and a surprisingly mineral finish. Love it!

  13. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    You can guess where the journey could have gone, but for my taste the whole thing is a bit too sour / bitter to crack the magical 88 mark.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Primarily very citrus, as well as fragrant-floral and lovely in the background. Not too much wood, but a bitter note that suggests the barrel. After a while, green grapes and white melon pulp. Everything is pretty, just not quite as creamy and full as bourbon barrel-aged Keiths of this age group can be.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Here, too, sour-tart, but with additional distillate sweetness that the nose has not revealed. A bit more crisp, bitter oak in the back than mM would have done him good. A few drops of water are advisable despite the low strength to get it to the optimum level.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Again, better with minimal dilution. Sweet / fruity / tart, with a pleasant balance.

  16. craide scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Fine filling, wonderful fresh nose that forms the strongest part. The palate continues the good impression. Although a little less positive. but all in all very good.
    • Nose
      89 89
      soft, gentle without pungent notes, slightly fruity like pears, grapes and green apple, somewhat grassy, floral like hay and fresh, slightly sour bread dough, with some time light citrus notes with fresh mint develop. Vanilla and caramelized sugar are permanently in the background.
    • Taste
      88 88
      oily, creamy beginning, here also rather soft without noticing the alcohol, nicely integrated, lime and grapefruit form slightly sour notes, in addition the green apples and pears as fruity notes, slightly sweetish after honey. A slightly bitter herbal note comes through, a nice contrast to this is the oak flavor, although not very pronounced, which remains subtly in the background, but rounds off the harmonious picture very well.
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium-long finish, sweet apple syrup, slightly spicy, becoming dry with a fresh mint note and at the end.

  21. coldsun scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Flavor has elements of hot spices, ginger, field flowers, buckwheat honey, cake, caramel, pickled vegetables. taste is bitter with notes of hot spices, hard cheese, cake, barley malt. Finish has elements of dried flowers, baking products, butter, spices.

  22. Trops scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    In fact, it is very open, no preludes: pure fruity sweet aroma of pear and white grapes, confectionery essence, a hint of kumquat, having become drier, notes of fermented raisins from bread kvass (!). Gave him half an hour. The taste of mineral, a little "with blood", a little citrus, anise drop, freshly cut oak wood. Body - light, aftertaste - average. In the aftertaste there is an elusive note of Oriental oil for aroma lamp (?). The aroma is the strongest component, as for me at 91, the rest is simpler, well, and a strong discrepancy between flavor and taste. I wanted to put more, but - deserved 88. Summer molt.

    The nose is the best part, and the most fruity
    • Nose
      89 89
      Good hybrid between het spirit and the fruity bourbon cask
    • Taste
      88 88
      Not as fruity as in the nose, but very good wit some minor oak in the back.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A bit short and not that fruity to hold up the score
