  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Smooth and fruity quite nice

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This one starts of very smooth and gentle, but gains some power along the way. Fruity, sweet and some grassy notes.
    • Nose

      Fruity, apples, some sweet like honey too. Light nose. Something grassy arrives, hay. And vanilla.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Soft and smooth, nut no thin or watery mouthfeel. Oily thickness, some orange, honey, a bit of caramel. Also some grassy, mossy kind of thing. Later on, more pepper comes in with a slight tingling feel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Now some pepper, but still very smooth and gentle. Thick, sweet fruity, peach and orange. A little bit of candy-like sweetness now as well. Later on, also in the finish things get a bit more powerfull and tingling.

  5. avansele scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very light and easy drinking ... I scored it rather high because of the candle wax note that I really love in some older Clynelish or Fettercairn bottlings. For a maturation point of view this is really well made. Worth the money ... no ... you pay mostly the name. But a really decent dram none the less.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very light nose. Some hints of hay, flowers and vanilla, a whiff of green apples and some candle wax.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Really light and easy drinking ... again some candle wax coming trough. Some vanilla and nutmeg as well. Not that complex but really nice and easy drinking.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Rather short finish of candle wax and nutmeg. This one flies away before you can begin to write on your tasting notes.

  7. Feusi scored this whisky 72 points Connoisseur

    Very light in color and so it comes in the nose, fresh barley perhaps with some apple, just as in the mouth, a bit flat, straw-like, very short on the finish. I think anyone who does not like the typical notes of whisky with some smoke is served here rather well. A whisky with little character.
