  1. Alois scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Blind tasting

    A good, straight and tasty malt for the summer. He keeps what he promises.
    • Nose
      Fruity to apple and fresh with some oak. Scent is getting better and better. Reminds me of Arran 10
    • Taste
      Strong oak and beautiful apple and peach. Somewhat dry but very nice in the mouth. Smoke is minimal. Sherry discreet
    • Finish
      Relatively medium length with a lot of oak. Dry and subtly smoky. Sherry discreetly present

    • Nose
      88 88
      sweet, maritime-salty, floral, light smoke, tropical fruits, pear, orange, vanilla
      The smoke is easily perceptible immediately after pouring, but disappears quite quickly afterwards. Nice fruity and sometimes very complex nose.
    • Taste
      87 87
      oily, sweet, caramel, spicy oak, salty, herbs, light spiciness, delicate tingling on the tongue, floral notes, honey.
      The smoke appears a little more here, but is still very subtle. The alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium length, very light smoke, spicy, chocolate, slight bitterness

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very good daily dram. A unknown but very high quality producing distiller. Same staff as Springbank.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, a classic whisky style nose, some bourbon influences, some hay, hint of vanilla and a very slight hint of sherry in the background. Little ashy and coalsmoke.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet and round. Quite an oily whisky. There are loads of vanilla and caramel notes. A tad grassy and woody in the background.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length. There is a little chalk note here. The development is more to a sweet and woody side. Here the smoke pops up a little.

  4. Doldersumj scored this whisky 95 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Rich scent, wich makes me curious about the taste. It smells peated with subtile smoke, but the sweetness of a good sherry cask whisky. 
    • Taste
      Rich taste. Everything is there from the scent, except for the sherry. Great taste with lots of different angles. 
    • Finish
      Long sweet finish with somewhat bitter eucalyptus sensation.
