  2. pianoman scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Elegant. Ripe yellow apples, a hint of wax and dust. Physalis, Goldkiwi. Hints of marzipan and lemon cake. Water mint.
    • Taste
      Creamy, slightly spicy. Apples, nectarines, blossom honey and some white pepper. Almonds, hazelnuts, light raisins.

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Quality dram but the pepperiness/spiciness is a bit too much to be thoroughly enjoyable. The sweetness is more superficial and bubblegummy than fruity. Waxy. Slightly malty. A bit of honeyed lemon liqueur. I was expecting a bit more.

  4. grinface scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    What a great dram. Fruity with almonds and grassy notes. Also some nuts and milk chocolate. A nice twist of lime and ginger. Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/11/28/speyside-1990-einmal-exklusiv-einmal-verloren/

  5. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Powerful, powerful, rather restrained nose. Unfortunately, far too pure and alcoholic.
    With plenty of water, this is much more edible, but unfortunately it also loses significantly in volume.
    All in all a very good, but by no means outstanding malt with a fresh fruity-spicy character.
