  2. Horror_Vacui scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Cotton candy, yellow-fleshed fruits (especially quince), some ginger. Somewhat one-dimensional when undiluted.
    With water, blossom honey, apricots, subtle cinnamon and wood.

    Mouth:
    Honey, cinnamon, quince, subtle oak, cotton candy. Unobtrusive, rather easy drinking, has a nice aroma.

    Finish:
    Medium to long, very sweet, but here the oak is most evident in the finish.

    85/100

    Conclusion:
    A nice, calm whisky, more on the sweet side. I would not have guessed the age blindly, he seems a little younger.

    Tasted in a whisky festival

    Too spicy for my liking. White and black pepper, ginger and vanilla dominate.

  4. Luigisim scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Interesting dram. The cask provided a peculiar sugar taste that is not really my favourite.
    Winter dram, robust and intense.
