  4. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The Peppery Pear Pie name is absolutely legitimate and I agree with Archer, the cask strength is convincing. Good stuff.
    • Nose
      Floral. Chamomile, lacquered wood, vanilla, pear, honey, citruses, green apple peel and spices.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Pear jam, pepper, vanilla, orange peel, quince, tannic oak and mint.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, oaky, fruity.

  5. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Good decision to bring the cask strength on the market and not as usual to dilute down to 46%.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh and fruity and actually with hints of pear. Green apple, honey, vanilla. Full and thick nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Orange mousse, pear compote, vanilla. For example, mint. Mentholig with time, but also transports a good portion of well-stored wood on the tongue.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, woody, orange marmalade.
