  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Surprisingly round and polished. Cherry lollipops and redcurrants as well as salt in the background, Jaffacake with raspberry filling and malt.
      With water: saltier and chocolatier. Bursty accents, effervescent powder with orange and raspberry. Fanta.
    • Taste
      Round, full and buried. Kirschlutscher again or better lollipop. In addition, chocolate, pepper, salt, soaked Loffelbiscuit, dreaded tea.
      With water: salt, lemonade, chocolate and malt.
    • Finish
      Medium long, berry and chocolaty.

      Chocolate, Black Tea, after adding some water and substantial breathing you get those raisin and dried fruit notes we all recognize from sherry cask

      Spicy peppery in the arrival, barley sugar sweet, candied fruits, chocolate and after adding some water some herbal notes on the background like mint come into play as well as subtil turkish delight
    • Finish

    Sometimes finishes can improve a whisky, this time it didn’t. Tasted at the Wicked Whisky Compagnie Arran tasting.
    • Nose

      Very floral, some slight sherry notes, mostly orange.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Nutty arrival, raisins, wet wood. Some tannins and pepper too.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Quite short, mostly raisins and wood notes.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Very light, which indicates a low%, fruity, acidic, I had early forest berries on the nose, cinnamon, pepper, changes
    • Taste
      85 85
      Absolute "sugar" bomb in the mouth, now very sweet fruity, then comes a spiciness, chilli, pepper, salt, Christmas spices like gingerbread, no sign of burning, the 50% does not notice
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, fruity persistence

  9. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The influence of the Italian red wine barrels makes it something warm, spicy, fruity, pear and plum. In the mouth it is mostly woody. Prune, caramel. Very good finish.

  10. Andreas W. scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice fruity malt, I like it. But still very young. The aromas are concentrated and powerfully carried on the first start of the high alcohol content, but fade quite quickly and it forms a slightly metallic / spritiger finish. Prices less than 40 € I think OK, over 40 € he would not personally worth it.
