  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet and tropical, pineapple, melon, honey. Initial alcoholic note is given over time. In addition, a fine oak note in the background, as of fresh oak shavings.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy, oily on the tongue. Tropical fruits on the tongue as in the nose. In addition, now comes more clearly the spice, which vigorously occupies the tongue.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Unfortunately, only medium, of these pleasant flavors I would have liked more or longer. Sweetness and wood notes fade quite fast.

    Needs a lot of time in the glass.

  4. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This nose is still the best, but it needs with me water and patience. Where is the sherry? Yes, it is drinkable - but I do not need more than one Dram, especially at the price - a bit reminiscent of a sprightly Glen Allachie 18
    • Nose
      85 85
      Toilet stone lemon, unnatural / artificial orange note, orange oil ginger, crushed lemon drops, stone meal, chalk, warm butter, hedge trimming, light summer flowers, linden flowers, herbaceous woody aromas
    • Taste
      83 83
      despite water it bites easily into the tongue, fresh sawn green wood, tree sap, resin, mint, rosemary - mandarin, a lot of lemon,
    • Finish
      82 82
      quite dry, pure fresh light wood - astringent, slightly dry, sage, thyme, slightly bitter - but still in the green

  5. pianoman scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Restrained. Light sherry, a hint of ginger. Sand, fresh matches. Gravel. Slightly metallic.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Light honey, floury apples. Warm mineral water with a slight bitter pungency. At the end a bit bland.
