  1. Moses scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    So that it is just a 10 year old who impresses me next is really awesome. Many thanks to Andre for this surprise.
    He had given me 2cl as a gift in the package. LUCKILY !!

      The nose, .... blatant .... break! At first, a full tube of cinnamon, vanilla-citrus-apple, pastries in the direction of the vanilla strudel! First you think: "No, I can't drink it". I have never really had anything like crazy extreme notes.
      Reaction was: I have to! Out of Stock.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Absolutely pleasant but strong, hard texture. Very mineral and slightly drying with still wonderfully spicy cinnamon notes. Yes man ... what is going on here? How do you make something like that? Not normal. A barrel management with a masterly hand or very lucky. I don't know how to do it.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium and drying with vanilla citrus, it is only in the middle in the finish. But if we consider the age, there is a good finish. Without a disturbing ending. The smell in the empty glass is also completely crazy. Woww! I am completely irritated.

  2. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    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
