  1. Moses scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    So that it will be a 10 year old who will impress me next is really awesome. A big thank you to Andre 'for this surprise.
    He had put 2cl in the package as a present for me. LUCKILY !!
    Now I've got a whole bottle of it. Unicorn!

      The nose, ... wow ... break! For the first time a full program of vanilla and apple and delicate pastries with apple strudel with a hint of cinnamon! Then soft shortbread biscuits. I seldom had such wonderful grades in bottles of this age in the glass. The reaction was clear: I have to!
    • Taste
      87 87
      Absolutely pleasant but strong, hard texture. Very mineral and slightly astringent with still wonderfully spicy cinnamon notes. Yes man ... what is going on here? Not normal. A barrel of management with a masterly hand or a lot of luck.
      Hello, this malt is 10 years old. I don't know how it works.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium and drying, underlaid with vanilla citrus, it is only in the middle field in the finish. But if we consider the age, the result is a good finish. Without a disturbing end. The smell in the empty glass is also completely crazy ... for hours
      Woww! I'm a little confused.

    Since I would have typed blindly on a jumper. The mineral paired with citrus notes is very similar to the Campbeltown character.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fat lemon sweetness, ginger, a little vanilla, mineral, with time the vanilla becomes more and more superficial and it is joined by pastry notes
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and powerful onset, directly creamy and again citrusy, then getting saltier and becoming mineral, the oak is slightly there, but without being dry
    • Finish
      87 87
      the mineral dominates with sweet oak, always with a bit of lemon effervescent powder, the finish is medium in length
