  1. marmeladow scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very well aged 15 year old whisky. Can keep up very well with Glenfarclas 15yo, with me one or the other was one step ahead. More complex and diverse-interesting than Cardhu and Glenfiddich 15yo, for example. More angular, if not significantly better than Dalwhinnie 15yo.

      Very complex nose, sweet with notes of sherry and toffee, also tropical fruit, lemon and malt. The longer - the dearer, really impressive nosing, especially as over time sherry and oak barrel notes become more evident.

      Oak fruits pear spices malt nuts sherry sweet vanilla
      Mouthfeel very pleasant, oily-velvety-creamy-tasty.
      Here you can always trace many aspects if you take your time and taste several times.

      Medium. Subtle spicy sharpness. Clearer, somewhat astringent oak notes, without this being able to mask the sweetness and the sherry content

    I was somehow a bit disappointed with this one, it was too oaky-bubbly on the tounge for me, felt way younger than 15 years and i never really got to fully enjoy it as i got to the bottom of the bottle. I won't need it again.

    I had heard great things of this 15 year old, but I prefer the sweeter 10 and 12 year old. Nice enough and still a good whisky.

  7. SimondeVette scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very good highland whisky. Good to drink, better to sip
    • Nose
      A bit grain, citrus, caramel, green apple
    • Taste
      Oak, banana, roasted almond, a bit sweeter than caramel: it reminds me of cotton candy
    • Finish
      Medium length, caramel, nutty, a bit bitter from the oak. The dram improves when you let it roll in your mouth, especially the nuttiness

    Recently had a small bottle of this which I would have rated 85. Seems to be a lot of batch variation. Even so, my marks seem to be quite generous when compared!
