  1. 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

  2. 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

    Again, a very fruity, just like GlenAllachie 12yo, but this time it is more about fruit in an immature form. However, the end of the body - after the slight bitterness subsides - reaches the liqueur sweetness.

    Adding water tends to hurt rather than help - making acidity and bitterness stronger.
    • Nose
      A lot of pineapple. Furthermore, dried banana, vanilla, fresh sweet fennel (tuber), honey, light musty and ethanol.

      After adding water: Gently polish the furniture. Boiled potatoes, dough and pistachio ice cream.
    • Taste
      Initially relatively bland, pungent and bitter. Gradually to creamy in consistency on the palate. Slightly pepper and dry ash. Vanilla pudding, green tones and black without.

      After adding water: Acid milk, unripe gooseberry, pistachio, unripe plum and fresh ginger.
    • Finish
      Finishing is bitter and woody. Lemon peel, grapefruit pulp, cinnamon bark and banana peel.

      When water is added: it gets even bitter. Unripe peach, apricot pips, lemon pulp, grapefruit peel, unripe banana and green tea.

    Direct comparison with batch 1 of the bottling.
    • Nose

      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.
