  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Waiting for time and the second sip helps him, definitely exciting, but not yet a real drink
    • Nose
      hmm, vanilla is there, but what comes next reminds me more of a soap, very light, floral, very light citrus, a little washing-up water, over time it gets a little better, herbal tea
      After the first sip it gets a little better, more vanilla, now it has something of whisky, also here the banana, green apple
    • Taste
      sweet, vanilla, also slightly floral, but not so soapy, banana, but still slightly immature, not so bad in the mouth, quite intense, of course quite direct and not particularly complex, but ok
    • Finish
      hmm, here is the soap, light sweetness, vanilla, a slightly bitter note

    • Nose
      Overripe banana, steamed pasta with vanilla sauce, a hint of coconut. Behind it green apple and lemon. Sorrel.
    • Taste
      Soft. Sweet malt, banana, a little peach and mango. White chocolate. Blueberries and a hint of bitter almond.

    Relatively one-dimensional but nice drinking whisky with a lot of sweetness and a somewhat strange chemical sweetness at the end. Overall very nice but nothing special.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Lots of vanilla but also notes of chocolate, creamy and creamy, very sweet like cotton candy from a fair.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Lots of chocolate and caramel on the one hand and a fresh "zesty" note (orange zest) and spicy ginger note on the other hand from the fresh Virgin Oak barrel.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Very sweet ending with a slight dryness, chemical sweetness like that of bad calorie-free sweeteners such as aspartame.

  5. CST1986 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nice and pleasant young whisky with a grassy and fruity profile complemented by virgin oak vanilla and coconut flavors. Nose: Vanilla custard, freshly mown grass, lemon zest and ginger. On the palate even sweeter, with nuances of coconut, lemon and barley sugar. Very smooth for its age - maybe too smooth? Medium sweet and sour finish, very good for its age. I'd prefer it at five years older and a less active cask. But we probably only need to be patient to get something like that. It's definitely a promising markstone of a distillery on the right track. I'm really looking forward to all the new Lowland distillates getting older and reviving this classic whisky region.

    Fresh and fruity, young but lots of potential.
    • Nose
      First vanilla and apples, with honey, malty notes and hay. Later light berry aromas and pastries. The alcohol can also be felt.
    • Taste
      Strong and full with a distinct peppery spice. Barley malt and grassy.
    • Finish
      Spicy, slightly tart oak, vanilla and honey.
