  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The Riesling is not so bad, amazingly spicy and oak, I would not have expected. The nose is more fruity than the rest. Overall, the Malt has quite a few Riesling properties, which he might have had without the finish, maybe not, who knows. Definitely a delicious, successful malt.
    • Nose
      Fruity fresh, yellow fruit, vanilla, sweet, buttery, quite a bit of oak and slightly mineral in the background, could also be metallic, but not youthful.
    • Taste
      spicy, strong, a small spice cupboard, subtle hints of wine, but very discreet
    • Finish
      a bit menthol, fresh, sparkling, but very spicy, oak, minimal bitterness, subtle acidity in the end.
