  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nice sweet and fruity one, very enjoyable, with the nose being the best part of it.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very fresh and fruity, citrus, pear, apples, and it looks like even a hint of smoke passes along, with some slight peat? Some rubber, a lot of alcohol.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong, full, intense. Sweet, vanilla, honey, peach. Also some caramel, orange.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still very powerful, and intense, full sweet taste, peach, honey and a pretty long finish.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is a bit of a letdown, otherwise, this would be charting very high indeed for me
    • Nose
      81 81
      sweaty funk, bruised fruit; quite push/pull. It is not super appealing but it holds out a masochistic 'try me' quality like you want to be disgusted
    • Taste
      88 88
      lovely, enticing sweetness with fruit in abeyance to start with. Creamy, this seems not to be what the nose would suggest
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium; icing sugar; not long enough and a touch one dimensional but what a lovely candied diminution

  4. Sandman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Orange, honey, apple juice, lemon, peach, vanilla custard, ginger, butter, banana and pineapple.
    • Taste
      Greasy, butter, banana, apple, vanilla pudding, honey, lemon, white pepper, ginger and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, fatty, ginger, malted barley, cinnamon, grapefruit, lemon, apple peel and banana.

  7. Martin1965 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla, fruit (pineapple, apricot), malt
    • Taste
      85 85
      Vanilla, sweet, oily, caramel, pepper
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium long, sweet and spicy

      Average barrel size - nothing special, especially not for the age
