  1. HKWhiskyExplorer scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Had it from a almost emptied bottle.

    In the wide range of young age whiskies nowadays, it has definitely earned a place for itself.

    Clean and very fruity, thanks to the triple distillation. You can taste the youth but it’s not disruptive.

    The taste is quite interesting. The nose also looks complex. But unfortunately he cannot hide his youth. Nevertheless, I am curious how it will taste in older age. The potential is that

      Fruit gum / wine gum notes result in a slight sweetness. Then the flower meadow comes. Surprisingly fresh, but also a bit pungent, almost musty, which I don't like at all .. Freshly sawn wood.

      The sweetness stays. But unfortunately also something pungent. Quite complex. The wine gum notes prevail. Blossom honey, exotic fruits.

      Short and dry. The sweetness fades and bitter notes remain.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    I think the unfortunately much too fresh oak-dominated, young and oak, almost bourbon-like.
    • Nose
      The nose is very spicy, oaky, vanilla, spices, nutmeg, only subtle fruit in the background, the fresh oak beats neat. One can guess a slightly grassy, Lowlander-typical note.
    • Taste
      herbaceous, grassy, slightly alcoholic, not spicy, really alcoholic, oak, menthol, spices.
    • Finish
      quite long on oak and spices, a hint of vanilla.

  7. RaggaeShark did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    How come this has shoplinks for the original retail price, when they claimed the ballot was closed and all 5000 bottles were sold over half a year ago?

  9. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly very good and complex for a 3 year old malt, first scoring is 86/87. But yet there is a bit taint taste too.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Floral. Waxy fruits, especially pears and apples. Honey, lacquered wood and touch of saffron.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Dried and baked fruits, caramel, orange peel, pepper and touch of gum.
    • Finish
      86 86
