  1. Paszko scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    [2019-10-04] A very pleasant whisky, nicely balanced, delicate.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Delicate and pleasant, sweet citrus, more orange than orange peel, lemongrass.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Nicely balanced, a bit warm (but not very much). Lots of citrus, sweet orange, grapefruit. Then a little creamy, sweet cocoa, chocolate, cappuccino. At the end a little spices, ginger, maybe nutmeg.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, but pleasant, creamy. Citrus fruits still clear, but more balanced.

    A neat malt from the bourbon barrel. Nothing that makes you nervous, but he doesn't do much wrong. For a large bottle, it is a tick too little exciting for me.
    • Nose
      On the nose honey and malt sweetness. In addition, rather bright fruits. Go towards meadow fruit. Occasionally there are some exotic fruits. Cereals roasted in butter. In addition, some grassy and floral notes. The wood notes are rather fresh and juicy.
    • Taste
      Now even sweeter in the mouth than in the nose. Maple syrup. Fructose. But also a pleasant - but clear - tingling. The fruity notes on the nose give way to the mixture of sweetness and spice in the mouth. Candied ginger and shower sticks. The wort also causes salivation.
    • Finish
      The tingling slowly subsides, but is still present. It's getting drier. Tree sap. Cocoa butter. Dry hardwood.

    Lots of alcohol in the scent, bit a bit - but the banter stops there - maybe I should have been a bit more patient. Full of citrus scent, whole haystacks full of spring, light-footed, hops and pleasantly, this whisky from the Blenders glass pops into my nose. Caramel, spices, sweet tobacco, it can't be beat. Then fruit; dried apricots, melon, pineapple.
    Come on, let's take a sip. Pepper at the 50.8%. Not as sweet at all as I expected, spices predominate. Little cocoa now. In the aftertaste there is some smoke burnt wood more than peat, very refined. Glen Grant had a somewhat cheap-blend appearance, possibly due to the Grant's whisky and the cheap and not very good entry-level version that this brand has. This, however, is different cake. This is finest Scottish Single Malt.

    From the sample bottle of popcorn. Not the most intense nose, still popcorn, artificial apple flavor. Vanilla, pears. Bourbon barrel well matured in the mouth, does not bite a lot, bitter it is not too much, not even in the finish. More citrus in the nose with water, a bit more fruit in the mouth. Departure at most "medium long". Sweet thing.

    Reminiscent of the 20-year-old from the Vintage Collection, the barrel numbers are - I think - not too far apart, just stupid, that the 2 years plus 7 percent by volume cost around 50 € extra.

  10. Bam scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Strong yet soft, complex yet easy drinking. Powerful and yet light.

    Really beautiful, multi-layered malt!
    • Nose
      Cereal notes followed by sweet caramel. Slowly the bright fruits show up. Banana, yellow apricots, and lemon peel. Everything is carried by a beautiful vanilla note. Alcohol in the nose is nothing to feel.
    • Taste
      Arrives with a slight tingling on the tip of the tongue, and spreads very slowly in the mouth, sweet and sticky. Caramel and apricots in harmony. The oak becomes stronger, spicier, and brings with it white pepper.
    • Finish
      Long finish, dominated by oak, but never bitter. Nougat and milk chocolate, white pepper and lemon rind. After a small eternity, the malt finally bids farewell with a nice espresso note, which persistently sticks to the palate.

  13. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Heavy sweetness, maple syrup, intense, nearly sherry, dried apricots, light chocolate, oaky and spicey as well. mingles nicley. complex and really easy to drink. the finish could be longer. the malt starts as a heavy wheight and loses some of it to the end. Fine dram and really good value for the money.
