  1. Jake1965Blues scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    amazingly mature, round whisky / valued at blind tasting for 10 - 12 years / many dark fruits
    • Nose
      87 87
      bright red fruits, strawberry, redcurrant, raspberry, a hint herbal candy, alcohol imperceptible, becoming increasingly spicy, minimal lovage
    • Taste
      89 89
      darker than in the nose, blackberry, plum, dark cherry, Demarara sugar, fine herbs, some block malty, of alcohol still almost no trace, round, soft
    • Finish
      88 88
      sweet, fruity, fine spiciness, medium-long

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Hard to evaluate. Good for 3 years, if barrel-driven. Overall, a little immature, young, but unfortunately you can not really recognize the Brennereicharakter, the barrel dominated and what now Annandale makes, remains in the dark.
    • Nose
      On the nose a lot of wine, nutty aromas, berry fruit, a slightly sour note, but you can still guess the youth and freshness of the distillate. After adding water almost nothing happens in the nose, almost gone.

    • Finish
      warm, wine, berries, light sulfur, nutty bitterness, which becomes stronger when water is added.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    One-sided but very good for its age. Not for its price of course.
    • Nose
      Caramel and cherry.
    • Taste
      Caramel, blueberry, fig and apple.
    • Finish
      Caramel, cherry and apple.
