  2. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nothing extra came out and it leaves me behind with a little flat ending.
    • Nose
      Fruity and some very little spices with a touch of sherry cask. Honey and a light hint of wood but it doesn't seem to open up completely and there is still something waiting to come out later. A few drops of water didn't make a big difference.
    • Taste
      Smooth (half creamy) and malty on the palate. Spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) mixed and balanced with the honey sweetness.
    • Finish
      Medium finish with more oak and some sherry influence and some spices.

    • Nose
      Behave at first, but then gets fuller and stronger. Slightly dusty and dry, with citrus fruits, spices like nutmeg, ripe fruits on barley field.
    • Taste
      Heavy body with barley malt, which has a striking effect and at the same time brings some sweetness. Supported by ripe fruit, liquorice, some citrus and vanilla. Everything in a good relationship to each other, with light wood notes.
    • Finish
      Strong with spices like pepper, malt, a portion of wood - getting slightly dry.

  7. xFabe did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Great standard filling, which is suitable both in summer and in winter. Does not bother, very balanced and balanced.
    • Nose
      Celestial sweet, juicy orange, "juice" from the fruit salad, grapes, mandarin, vanilla, pistachio ice cream, very distant hints of mulled wine spice (sweet Christmas market)
    • Taste
      Sweetness and acidity play around very pleasant oak notes, juicy in the mouth, wonderfully interwoven
    • Finish
      Goes down like oil, fantastically juicy with just the really pleasantly interesting amount of oak, the spicy, pleasant, warming down the throat.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N- A melting pot of honey, liquorice and leather. Soft floral, cedar wood and cigar box. In harmony and finely integrated.

    P- Sweet spice and peppercorn. Tobacco with dark and woody olorosso influence. Bitter chocolate and expresso.

    F- Effortless, pleasing, charm and energetic. Liquorice and minty. Medium length.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  9. MasterOfPuppets scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    A malt without highs, depths, corners or edges. Definitely a tasty drop.
    • Nose
      Peach, red fruits, cloves, laurel leaves, plums
    • Taste
      Oak, red fruits, cloves, vanilla, malt
    • Finish
      Pretty short for an 18 year old.

  10. malthead-sven scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    In the aroma a fat load of fruit, very pleasing but not very demanding and complex, in the taste, unfortunately, a little spicy and unround, otherwise decent standard.
    • Nose
      green grapes, cane sugar, fruity-sweet, lime, mango, orange juice, warm, candied apples or oranges, a little vanilla, caramel and toffee, almonds, subliminally slightly grassy
    • Taste
      again fruity, marzipan, slightly tingling to spicy, more intense than expected with a clear hint of oak, somewhat sprightly
    • Finish
      strikingly strong, medium-long with a good dose of oak, oily and spicy, otherwise no significant highlights
