  1. Gregers scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Very enjoyable, good value for money.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Green apples, vanilla, grass, butterscotch, raisins, dried apricots. Delicious.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Muscovado sugar and alcohol dominate early, then come barley, mint, hayish notes, and vanilla into the mix. A hint of toffee joins the party, but then it dries out a bit, and alcohol still dominates throughout.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Balances well in spite of the high alcohol, sweetness still going as notes of tobacco and oak start to join in at the end.

    Nose: white fruit (peaches, melon, banana) hints of citrus (cedar, orange honey)
    palate: so much malt, less waxy than the typical clynelish style, younger and fruity, still hints of banana, lots of vanilla, melon, a subtle flavor of beeswax, oil and honey that recalls the distinctive traits of the distillery style (more accentuated by the addition of water, sometimes almonds and dried fruit,
    final: medium length, still malt, beeswax, honey and vanilla

    Absolutely recommended, great value for money

    Compared to the earlier bottled casks 800084,
    800066 and 800067 this one is the best integrated one. It also has a bigger bourbon cask influence.
    • Nose
      Pear juice, vanilla, macadamia, honey, banana and a bit of cookie.
    • Taste
      Apple, vanilla, macadamia, ginger and honey. With water some candy bracelets.
    • Finish
      Apple, caramel, vanilla, honey, macadamia, cocoa and a whiff of smoke.
