  1. Amaliana scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    Tastes unfortunately only artificially sweet. No volume and virtually no exit available.
    Sorry I was looking forward to it

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    N- Honey sweet classic speyside-r that reminiscent those distilleries around the Keith. Broad cotton nuance that housed the dripping sweet nectar of ripe fruits and generous floral aroma. Banana, pineapple with butterscotch. Playful popping candy, dried hawtorn snacks with layer of steel. (90/22)

    P- Good bite on the palate, dense spicy grips with solid wood. Ripe fruits follow by honey, frizzy pepper and crystalised sugar crisps, crushed nuts and plenty of phenol for depth. (92/23)

    F- Long, prominent oak nurtured the spirit well, butterscotch, cigar smokes, quite a bit of fruit peel to chew on for a little while. A big spicy dram that bring comfort and calmness at the end. (93/23)

    Not well balanced and the range of flavors is not consistent either - neither barrel nor aging time could tame the wild distillate.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Raisins and a lot of grainy caramel, a few cherries, vanilla, forest honey and tobacco, waffles and cookies, rose hips and orange flit through the undergrowth, the alcohol wanders around with a bit of oak in tow
    • Taste
      78 78
      is dominated by dry and bitter oak, surrounded by alcohol - adding water cannot do much here, oranges, vanilla, walnuts and a few pounds of caramel in the ground, malt
    • Finish
      82 82
      Caramel vanilla, malt, walnuts, cinnamon and spicy oak, the caramel mixes with sherry notes, pleasantly tasty bitterness, hazelnuts in the back

  5. drummer & timmer did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    TSC:
    Nose: Spiced vanilla, warm and packed with delicate fruit aromas. Thick honey and gingerbread.

    Palate: Rich caramel, a hint of salt and cracked black pepper. Very rich and velvety, this is an easy-drinking whisky. The flavours from by the sherry cask are there, but don't dominate.

    Finish: A long, oaky finish, with some lingering cinnamon and sherried notes.
