  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      sweetish, wax, woodruff, honey mead, vanilla
      in the Blender's Glass still: young fresh and sweetish herbs mmmh
      slightly artificial sweetness
      herbal candies
      Now something Maggi comes through and the furniture polish of megabreit wink
      floral note in the background
      a touch of cucumber water
    • Taste
      liquid cool honey on the lips
      He heats himself up on the tongue
      unfolds its herbs and some broth
      oily, wood, some glue
      on the palate ripe sweet cereals, citrus warm
      the honey sweet dissolves sweetly
      becomes too bitter wood with seasoning
    • Finish
      a very long finish
      yes there is the crumbly almost dry apple - extremely clear at the very end of the departure
      and barrel slightly bitter / gummy

    The wood note is so concise that it tastes much older 10 years. wlk 19-7
    • Nose
      86 86
      Starts with sour apple and bitter honey. The sour note passes quickly. Then bread dough, malt, vanilla are added. Caramel sweet, beautiful spice (wood? Herbs?).
    • Taste
      86 86
      Pleasant start with tidy wood. Hui, directly pretty dry. Grapes, vanilla, honey. The apple from the nose remained in it.
      Strong spice mixture with pepper, nutmeg and chervil; along with the woody note palatal. Almonds, milk chocolate. Warm caramel, creme brulee. You can literally chew on the wood. Fine-herb.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium to long, woody, vanilla sweet, orange peel. Still with bitter herbs, which provide a certain bitterness.

  3. Sandman scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Caramel, honey, tropical fruit, peach in syrup, cinnamon, light pepper, nutmeg, cotton candy and marzipan.

    I tasted this in a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet banana and peach candies. Weeig, fermented fruit, apple. Salty, sour. Hmmm, funky .. Is this going to be nice?
    • Taste
      89 89
      Less intense and funky than the nose. Yellow fruit (apple sauce, pineapple, orange), spicy undertone (peppery, nutmeg, coconut, salty, wood), dry. Yummy! Funky from the nose comes back very slightly, just gives a special edge.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Salty, dry, fruity, good length

    I liked it better than the 17 year old.
    Very light fruity and easy to drink.

  8. a12 scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    This is a malt with character, I really enjoyed it (bottle finished). The sweet spot is oddly at bottling strength.
    • Nose
      Neat: raw onion, applepie and flower honey
      Water: red apples, grain sweetness
    • Taste
      Neat: honey/caramel, toast with butter, bitter development.
      Water: same but less pronounced, except the onion is back

    Nose : I definitely get the "funky cheese" some people refer to. Its weirdly pleasant. Melon on top of a honeyed-vanilla bed. With time, a bit of floral scents, maybe hay. Overall spring-ish nose.
    Mouth : Quite dull, a bit of ginger and alcohol. Like a waxy/gluey echo of the nose.
    Finish : Short to medium, with a touch of melon and barley sugar.

    This nose did not remind me of any other whisky, which is nice. But except for this, it feels overall too dull even as a daily drinker. Right now 64€ in my local shop, I can list many better bottles around this price.
