  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS notes:

    Liquid dessert    Cask number 125.26

    This is drawn from a specially selected, slow-grown, air-dried, American oak cask. There were cries of „lovely’ and „enticing‟ from the panel as they nosed it: fresh oak, blood oranges, and a curious hint of Savlon antiseptic cream, then syrup sponge, Jamaica cake and pecan pie, with Dundee cake and more syrup sponge in the mouth: a voluptuous smooth texture. Water introduces almond oil and pear frangipane [pear sponge with almonds]. Smooth and sweet to taste, with traces of coconut and cinnamon in the aftertaste. A „three cakes‟ kind of a whisky, from the distillery near Tain which pioneered wood finishing.

    Drinking tip:    With mature Cheddar cheese

    Colour: Robertson’s shredless marmalade

    Summary note on the bottle:
    The slow-grown, air-dried American oak cask has lent this malt a wonderful range of dessert flavours: Jamaica cake, syrup sponge and pecan pie to start with; Dundee cake and more syrup sponge in the mouth. Water wheels in pear sponge with almonds. Delicious!

    Good surprise
    • Nose
      A very bourbon nose on spices, vanilla, coconut, not bad of fruit (peach, apricot), toffee and floral notes.
    • Taste
      A beautiful basket of fruit, peach, apricot, spices, coconut and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long and fruity

  3. Volanne scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very enjoyable "technological", modern malt that might disturb you if you're in old school whiskies. But if you ask me, a little sweetness doesn't hurt from time to time.
    • Nose
      The (virgin?) american oak speaks loud here. Propels you straight away to the Artisan Cask and, even more obviously, the Astar. Full of tasty stone fruits (peaches and nectarines). And quite some candy floss, like in a high end single grain. Really tantalizing.
    • Taste
      Creamy and tasty. Alcohol is on the edge, but balances the sweetness from the cask. Peach & apricot bubblegum. And a slight gingery sourness.
    • Finish
      Long and fruity. Ready for another sip?

  4. Dede scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A nice malt, relatively fruity and quite typical of highland productions whose alcohol would be better integrated, even after adding water.
    • Nose
      Waxy, vanilla and fruity, this first nose is very pleasant. It then evolves towards notes of pencil lead mixed with a nice freshness mentholée, accompanying a small basket of summer fruits (peach, apricot).
    • Taste
      The attack is lively and frank, the texture fluid, the aromas in the lineage of the nose, with wax, yellow fruits, a touch of lemon and a pinch of white pepper. The water brings out a bit of bitterness as well as the pencil lead.
    • Finish
      Long, well marked by spices (white pepper, ginger) and fruity.
