  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    a good dram not "expensive" at all, with spices up, well-established woody, fruit well-compote, the malt that comes out, in short, a good time not to think too much!

  2. Sandman scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Dried fruit, toffee, spicy, lemon, pear, green apple, toast and barley.

  3. coldsun scored this whisky 42 points Expert Senior

    Peat, zesty citrus, green grass, barley malt. Finish is long, spicy and zesty.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Allright, but that's about it. Some chili cheese will enhance the caramel flavor, that's the interseting part
    • Nose
      Briny, cabbage, fruity, slightly smokey, sherry with some vanillin
    • Taste
      Fudge, spicy, sharp, caramel
    • Finish
      Warming with caramel

  6. Archer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Still quite promising in the nose, it breaks down quite a bit on the tongue and on the finish. That's a pity.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Refreshing maritime nose. Mineral. Cut flowers, sweet raspberries, honey. In the background toffee sweets.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Cocoa and coffee beans, pepper, thyme, rosemary. Much less flowery and fruitier than the nose. Some dry old wood. Milk chocolate, toffee, honey. A touch of the mineral impression from the nose.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Rather short, while dry. It slips over your tongue pretty fast, leaving milk chocolate, coffee beans and mild pepper.

    Unfortunately not my taste!
    The nose promises more than the taste gives.

  8. Reakwoon scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Resembles a fruit brandy! Not a typical Lowlander, in my opinion!

  9. Frion83 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Good intro mouth
    • Nose
      Light sweetness and a grain of salt. Dried fruit, malt and sherry. Slightly perfumery. With the warm-up, slightly peat and fresh foliage are added. In the development of a little burning.
    • Taste
      Slightly peat, malt, fruit. Light resin and a grain of salt.
    • Finish
      In general, the continuation of taste. A bit short.

  10. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    malt, mixed fruits, strong enough! rather dry wood in return with vanilla!
