  1. redlightsflash89 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    What a whisky. I absolutely love this.
    • Nose
      89 89
      I get maritime notes first and foremost, salt and seaweed. This is followed by an immense sweetness. Dark berries, red fermented grapes, vanilla, Elderflower.

      Absolutely beautiful.
    • Taste

      It spreads perfectly in my mouth, no sharpness even though it is cask strength.

      Strawberries, blackberries, vanilla, salt, very light smoke, oak, red wine cask influence, sweet chocolate
    • Finish
      91 91
      Very long and wonderfully round and complex

      Again blackberries are very dominant followed by other berries and light chocolate again a hint of perfectly integrated salt and smoke.

      it is so incredibly well balanced and sweet.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, whole whisky, perfectly arranged and balanced, smooth, soft, rather complex and deep, not very old - rusty young notes skip here and there.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, processed wood, vanilla, creamy sweetness - toffee, boiled condensed milk, fondant; light notes of dry grasses, a little malt and grain with mineral tones in the background, milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Rich, soft, spicy oak, dry herbs, creamy sweetness, fruits, berry jam, milk chocolate, light bitterness.
    • Finish
      Spicy, bitter-sweet, warming, toffee, bitter bark, dried herbs, buckwheat honey, nuts, cappuccino.

  9. whisky_garage scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    The aroma is slightly closed, sweetish. Vanilla - honey history, spices, industrial notes.
    They stood, breathed .... Light oily, tea with raspberries, herbaceousness, mint candies.
    The taste is sweetly peppery. Vanilla, honey, berry jam, wine notes, spices, pepper. The barrel is present in sufficient quantity, while in moderation.

    Finish - medium duration, sweet - peppery. Vanilla, spices, pepper, barrel.

    Conclusion: Sufficiently balanced, soft, at the same time scarce in derivatives, shades and midtones.

  10. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    pleasant, well balanced, integrated, lightweight, definitely worth the money
    • Nose
      The nose is calm enough, malt, honeycombs of honey and vanilla, later wine notes come out
    • Taste
      Light, soft, peanut butter, herbs and some spices with wood
    • Finish
      discreet finish, malt and vanilla notes, soft woody dryness
