  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It can do something, very nice malt tones from front to back, you can discover something, 0 missing notes, of course it lacks a bit of body.
    • Nose
      Nice mixture of fresh pear puree, with slight mineral and also sweet notes like honey, good corner more complex than both previous ones in the tasting (Albyn and another Magdalene), birch juice, thyme, eucalyptus, lemongrass, vanilla, marshmallows, ginger
    • Taste
      Crispy pear beautiful with crispy malt in double play, tick chalk, beautiful heather grass, ginger, leather, wax, herbal honey, thyme, tick fennel, a hint of eucalyptus, croissant
    • Finish
      Malt, very tasty and crunchy, cereals, apple chips, pear, medium length

    Wonderfully fresh and fruity on the nose. Nice apple and pear notes. Strong fruit basket in taste, unfortunately also a bit musty. Reminds me of the Glenlivets from the 70s.

    I like the taste and finish very much here.Reminds me of Clynelish at times. The nose is a little flat. Probably expectable at 40%. Still very drinkable. Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2021/01/19/sieben-super-st-magdalene/
