  2. Lorion scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty, really tasty. 83 points.
    • Nose
      Sweet first. Vanilla. There is also a bright fruit, a quite fresh apple. Malt is also clearly noticeable and the wood is also unmistakable. The result is a picture of fruit salad with many fresh and tangy fruits, over which some oak wood was grated. A bit of honey is also added discreetly. After the inclusion of the palate, the nose sways back and forth - sometimes sweet, sometimes kräutrig.
    • Taste
      Fruity and sweet. Full of us juicy. At the forefront of the crisp apple is there. Shortly before swallowing and in the re-tasting something pipe tobacco is to taste. The mouthfeel is enormously soft. With the second sip more oak comes into play and slightly fermented flavors come to it.
    • Finish
      Pretty long, sweet tobacco. Hardly warming.

  4. malthead-sven scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    nice flavors variety but overall a bit smooth and meaningless, had promised me more of
    • Nose
      Sherry in the foreground, not alcoholic but with a fresh, lemony touch, orange juice, walnut, white chocolate
    • Taste
      sweet and tasty, well balanced, slightly tingling and dry
    • Finish
      spicy, slightly bitter, quite long but restrained, at the end a light hint of grapes

  6. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I was impressed by this one. A good whisky does not always have to be bottled at cask strength. This one will attract a broader range of whisky lovers, both beginners and connoisseurs.

    (Rating interval 84-88)
    • Nose
      Aldehydes are present on the nose as oil paint or acrylic paint, slightly solvent. Spicy with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Some dried grass is playing with soft oak, mocha and red apples.
    • Taste
      Sweet honey, vanilla sugar, spices, orange, instant coffee, pear sherbet and baked apples with cinnamon. After water much more pear flavors.
    • Finish
      Excellent spicy finish with cinnamon, bitter orange and all spice. 

  7. Hare&Copper scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strawberries, toffee, banana cake. Sherry. Rose water. A bit dusty. Something slightly burnt and a little sooty. A touch of sulphur, but is a plus rather than a minus.
    • Taste
      Quite thin but nicely balanced. Light honey, raisins, sultanas, orange. Over ripe banana. Turkish delight. A little floral. Hints of sulphur/gunpowder.
    • Finish
      Medium long with sherry, stewed fruits, and good toffee.

  8. Titi94 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Bottlers note:

    The nose reveals pronounced Sherry aromas along with hints of ripe summer berries. Smooth and well balanced, the palate displays mixed spice flavours and a touch of charred oak.

  9. Titi94 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt:

    Nose: Quite full with balanced oaked tannins and smoked ham. A touch of Fraise des Bois liqueur and notes of musty port.Palate: Full and firm with notes of arak, dark toffee, vanilla spice and buttery oak.Finish: Quite long and oaked with a touch of spice.

  10. Zazaz scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Sweet, dark fruits, dried plums, butterscotch, a little fudge and vanilla. Great stuff! Stylewise pretty close to the much more popular GlenDronach. Would be amazing at higher abv, still a bargain. Highly recommended!
