  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A fantastic bottling if you're into fruit bombs, which I definitely am. I could nose this all day, any day.
    • Nose

      Extremely fruity, thick and syrupy, fruit preserve, a tropical sweetness, pineapple, canned peaches, passionfruit, sour candy, gooseberry, beeswax and acacia honey.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Thick, creamy and juicy, more pineapple, peach, passionfruit and guave. Also some honey, a clear peppery note with some nutmeg and mint in the background.
    • Finish

      Pretty long: more pineapple and syrupy sweetness, some pepper, shifting into a clear drying oak wood note.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Lots of gooseberry jam. Dried fig, melon, honey, baked apple, furniture polish and a little clay.
    • Taste
      More waxy. Gooseberry, date, vanilla and a little mint as well.
    • Finish
      Gooseberry and cocoa.
