  1. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Wateriness in the body spoils the overall impression, and so - a very good whisky

      Fresh and rich, wild herbs, tart pear, honey, menthol and hard candies, animal wool

  2. olegborgol scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Lollipops, citrus, a lot of pepper, notes of wax, pollen, mown a little sun-dried grass. 2'2'2'2

  3. Double Barrel scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Impressive and flawless!
    Perfect balance between vanilla and spices (that tingle the tongue so nicely) from the oak, fruits (pearish then getting tropical) and an impressive herbal freshness (leaning towards a mix of Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Drill) from the distillate.
    Pastries nicely melted to the above characteristics.
    Length is surprinsigly longer than anticipated.
    Ultra-nice selection!

  7. craide scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly good as easy. Delicious malt that simply convinces in the nose.
    Nothing wild but good and simple.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh, soft start. A lot of citrus fruits, light fruits like pear and grapes. There is also a fine honey sweetness with butter scotch. Slightly floral, fresh hay with notes of vanilla and caramel. Alcohol is well integrated. Harmoniously mature Speysider.
      I like my nose very much.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy with a nice dose of spice.
      Sparkling with vanilla and fruit.
      Also slightly sweet on the palate, with honey. Alcohol strength fits very well. Is not as varied as in the nose but very drinkable. I also like it here.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Relatively short finish, fresh hay and citrus predominate.

  8. LeChiffre scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A nice fruity summer malt, but also has plenty of power and spice in the mouth (in contrast to many otherwise rather mild summer whiskys). Very delicious and the high alcohol level is good.
    • Nose
      87 87
      fresh and fruity; bright fresh fruits; intense honey; malty; citrus; overall fresh and summery in the nose
    • Taste
      89 89
      sweet; very fruity; fresh bright fruits (apple, pear) also here; also very spicy (slight sharpness);
    • Finish
      87 87
      slightly dry; very spicy; fruity notes; Oak

  9. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    88
    Nose: easy, summer-like ... Pear, lollipops, cotton candy, citrus, cinnamon bun
    Taste: tight, anesthetic, varnish, citrus
    Finish: average duration, pleasant.

  10. Gldflo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Whisky all in consistency, from the nose to the final.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very greedy nose, the whisky opens on pastry notes (frangipane, honey) then offers a more grain side (malt, cut herbs, hay) while keeping a certain freshness.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The attack is fruity aromas of fruit from the orchard (apple, pear). In the middle of mouth a touch of acidity very lively but very pleasant (granny-smith apple) before ending on something more greedy but still fruity.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long and sublimates the rest. The walk ends with notes of fruit pasta / quince pasta.
