  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    All 3 high coast I have tried have a young distillate character. This is no different. The bourbon casks give a nice vanilla profile, I get apple and cinnamon as well in a nice combination. There is big spices in the palate but it does all work together well
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet, grassy young distillate, vanilla, baked apple pie (apples & cinnamon)
    • Taste
      83 83
      Much like the nose, but a big warmth from the 46% I wasn’t expecting, a big swarm of spices & pepper then subsides for the vanilla, apple, cinnamon
    • Finish
      84 84
      Short, cinnamon, spices and pastry dough.

    Very nice bourbon aged whisky and at 49 Eur it’s great value for money. About 6 years old if I understand it correctly but having blindtested this I guessed the age to 12 years so this is well matured considering the age. It comes in a series together with two other bottlings (Hav och Timmer), and for me this is clearly the best of the three.

    Nose: Light and fresh with pears, apples and not a hint of smoke anywhere. Lovely nose actually in a delicate and interesting way.
    Palate: Again light and fresh and obviously a non-peated bourbon matured whisky. Fresh, fruity and elegant. Perhaps some citrus and coconut. Very interesting!

    To sum this up I have to say that I am positively surprised considering the age and price of this bottle. It’s really nice and at this price range there are few whiskies that I would hold higher than this one.

    Well Done High Coast!
