  3. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Blind-Tasting.
    • Nose
      Voluminös
      aber „muffig“. Erde, Kartoffelkeller, Möbelpolitur. Etwas Honig und Frucht
      dahinter. Orange, eventuell auch etwas Nelke und Gewürze.
    • Taste
      Ölig.
      Schwer und süß. Honig, Karamell, Eiche. Bitterschokolade, Gewürze und wiederum
      Möbelpolitur.

      Mit Wasser: Das
      Aroma verliert. Vor allem die Bitternoten werden heftiger.
    • Finish
      Lang und dunkel.
      Schokolade, Leder, Kaffee.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Uncomplicated Speysider, which already has a few years on the hump. The sherry barrel has not much to say in the malt.
    • Nose
      light fruits, light, slightly dusty, a slightly musty touch of wood, some gauze bandage. Floral notes, some honey.
    • Taste
      Strong. Vanilla, fruit, some wood.
    • Finish
      sweet, light, vanilla, oak, slightly tart.

  5. Schollus scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very pleasant, notes of vanilla, slightly peppery, fruity

    Taste: bitter, light sherry, wood notes, pepper, floral notes

    Finish: Bitterness stays, warm, black pepper
