  1. Allandale scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A smooth but light body.
    • Nose
      Crisp. Spicy. Ginger ice cream.
    • Taste
      Restrained start. Gentle flavour development. Lean. Lightly creamy. A suggestion of malted milk. Some concentrated sweetness.
    • Finish
      Medium soft long. The ice cream is rum-and-raisin.

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    It has a nice spicy and fruity character.
    • Nose
      Licht spicy, resiny, oranges, dried fruit  and chocolate (reduced: more citrus notes, apple and clearly vanilla notes).
    • Taste
      Peppery start but quickly shows white chocolate and a light sweetness (reduced: silky, applepie, light woody dryness).
    • Finish
      Long, warming with a vanilla sorbet.
