  1. bibjim877 scored this whisky 96 points Member Junior

    truly wonderful fruity whisky that loves oxygen and opens up more in the glass after a good 10 minutes. I honestly think the lower ratings are from those not patient with this one.

    On the same level as the greatest Speysiders from 73 - extreme fruitiness, sweetness and balance that I like very much - fantastic!

      Tropical fruits galore, mango, pineapple and so on, sticky sweet, notes of overripe fruits, glue and solvent, spices, pepper - superb!
    • Taste

      Very fruity, sweet, honey, all the tropical fruits again, fine oak wood, little vanilla, ginger, more spices - excellent!

      Long, warm, sweet and fruity, more spicy, not drying

    Amazing nose. Complex with syrupy fruit concentrate, ginger and other spices and herbs.

  4. gango4 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Outstanding nose that plays out the full age, very balanced in the mouth and a tasty finish.
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring fantastic! Wow what a nose. Sweet, fermenting fruits, tropical. Powerful, but no trace of alcohol. Like sticking your head into a drained but still dripping barrel, because that's where oak comes. With a little warmth then very light, delicate spices are added.
    • Taste
      Gentle and round. The same flavors reappear as in the nose. Only he is a little fresher here with light Trabeubes and less fermented, but rather unripe fruit.
    • Finish
      In the finish takes over the oak, the fruits retreat. Medium. Demands for more! Dangerous.
