    Direct comparison with batch 1 of the bottling.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Oh, that's interesting. The nose is very different from Batch 1 and brings a note that I can not define right away. Something musty, like wet wood or even a wet rope. Again there is a sweet hint of vanilla and honey with herbs. I also find red apple, toffee, sugared grapefruit, banana. For a while I think of a piece of hand soap. With water, the Batch 2 opens and becomes chocolatier and darker overall.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet, oily, malty. There are chocolate covered raisins, honey, a piece of apple and almond cake, rosemary, lots of wood, a little mint and slightly bitter pear peel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium with honey, ginger and clear wood.

    Room temperature when drinking: 20 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: golden smell Nose: waxy texture, oily texture, a little bit of yeast dough, maple sugar toast and honey milk sweetness Yellow fruit, yellow peach, jackfruit. At the same time, there is a dry shell of walnut opal, and the burnt barley taste Palate: bitter at the entrance, roasted barley, the subsequent sourness and astringency increase, and the sense of stimulation is no longer. Dry wood strips, walnut Ooze wine Body: medium to high oiliness

    Nose: 83/100
    Palate: 80/100
    Finish: 83/100
    Body: 83/100
    Overall: 82/100

    Overall: nose is still dominated by dried wheat aroma and yellow fruit. The sourness and bitterness at the entrance is almost no friends, and I do n’t understand the idea of bm.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Young and lively with upfront vanilla, floral, some porridge with sharp citrus on a thin caramel crisp biscotti, quite colourful and well build by the strength and remains solid. Fine classic speyside-r with various quality tropical fruits drifting around to keep the nose entertained. Some starfruits, apricot etc. (87/21)

    P- Fresh. Peach, apricot and maraschino kind of stone fruits. Creamy sweet with toasted nuance of honey and vanilla. Mixed spices dryness. (88/22)

    F- Medium long, minty, echoing spices with sweet honey. Good weight and warming. (87/21)

    B/B- 89/22 Neither anything unusually good nor bad. Like the solidness of this without being overly oak-y and strike a good balance with the various type of oaks.

    Weighted Rate- 86pt

  8. Pauci scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Bright fruit bomb with a great malt taste and a long finish. The oak is to taste and the sherry finish rounds off the filling a bit, but is very in the background. A wonderful and wonderfully strong malt.

    Delicious
