  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts sweetly with sticky fruit syrups, tangerines, caramelized nuts, malt, chocolate and a fine softwood note. Overall, but a bit shallow.
    • Taste
      Emphasizes malty. In addition, beautiful softwood note, nuts, sherry and linseed oil. As appealing in the smell but shallow. Too bad.
    • Finish
      Medium long, nutty and slightly oiled coniferous wood.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this one together with the Dewar's 12 at the same night, and the Aberfeldy influence in this Dewar's blend is obvious: Both have this bitterness, grapefruit-like taste. I don't really like this, this is definately not my favorite profile.
    It doesn't make the whisky bad, but just not my type.
    • Nose

      Fruity, apples, also some peach, and some honey-like sweetness. Pretty light 'nose', some hint of vanilla.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Fruity, only a very little pepper, light and soft. Now here comes the bitterness, grapefruit. Also some sweet like caramel, in time the body gets a little stronger, but the bitterness remains.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Soft and smooth, licorice, with still this bitterness underneath. Later on, more pepper comes in, middle long finish.
