  1. pianoman scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Cyclist with lemon. Green cut, damp soil, wet leaves. Apple cider. A trace of honey.
    • Taste
      Malt beer, brown bread, a hint of apricot. Some sugar. Short.

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He seems inevitably quite young. The fruits are very bright and fresh. I also have certain yeast associations. In the mouth then relatively sharp for the 45%.
    I do not need that again.

  3. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Despite its young age, this whisky is balanced and smooth.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruits, green apples and pears, and sweet rum
    • Taste
      Sugary sweet and malty.
    • Finish
      A gentle woody and malty finish.

  7. Myke scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Wow - for a 3 year old incredibly complex. Sweetness and fruit in the nose dominant, woody-spicy and nutty aroma in the taste more pronounced. Exciting counterpoint.
    • Nose
      88 88
      fruity-sweet: dominating tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, pear) with a little honey & caramel. Very light sweetish spice and a slightly creamy-oily nutty aroma; goes towards walnut & hazelnut. A very light floral note and vanilla are hidden in the background. The PX-Sherry note becomes more present after standing a bit, with air contact it develops a little.
    • Taste
      85 85
      distinct sweetness. Spicy and fruity taste. Nutty aroma comes through completely (roasted almonds, macadamia, hazelnuts). A very light sherry note. This chestnut wood somehow stays in your head, and trying to classify it ... very interesting.
    • Finish
      83 83
      long finish with a malty note. The spice is also retained for a long time, the sweetness tends to recede. Coffee-tart taste (but very pleasantly integrated) and an oak aroma stay on the tongue for a long time. Gets drier out the back.

  10. Malthead19 scored this whisky 66 points Expert Senior

    So the first single malt ... yes the youth is still clearly noticeable but is not bad either. The 45% are already integrated very harmoniously. Oak and wort predominate, but really convincing for 3 years. Has a lot of potential if it will mature for a longer time. With a realistic view and without inflation and taking into account the price (i.e. at 80 points are really mature, high-quality whisky and it is still far from it), in my opinion ratings over 70 are not understandable, but ok everyone as he would like.
    • Nose
      Oak, yellow fruits, apricot (fruit note, however, only very subtle), green apple, youth clearly recognizable
    • Taste
      strong but not unpleasant start, spice, oak, the fruit aromas in the smell are unfortunately hardly present, only very minimally pronounced
    • Finish
      medium-long, soft, pleasant finish; medium-long spicy aftertaste
