  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      grassy, creamy,
      lemon, caramelised
      a little fresh and moistened crumb
      malt with wood
      grassy and pastry at once, subtle
    • Taste
      honey, fudge caramel,
      pear and poached apples, a little lemon and vanilla,
      then soaked grapes,
      exotic fruits (especially mango!), fine but intense at the same time!
      fairly young leather, dry wet wood occurs
      a trace of mint, fresh almond, then the caramel melted again.
    • Finish
      long, intense, subtle, on the same scents with leather, cooked fruits (pear then mango!)
      wood, fine leather!
      the basket of floral herbs.

    Nose on the solvent, yellow fruits, haribo banana. On the palate it is super greedy, mango, a herbaceous touch, a finish on apricot. It's very complex and greedy, you have to give it time because it has a lot to say

    Color: pale gold, golden reflections

    Nose: Superb, grilled malt, a very greedy nose, vanilla, flambéed banana, grilled almond of the funfair, a little floral, grassy note, and frangipane.

    Palate: magnificent, tropical fruit, mango, papaya, melon, exoticism is present, then vanilla makes its appearance in the finish.

    Finish: medium, even short, on succulent grass and bananas.

    Comments: a super exotic littlemill. Well integrated alcohol.

    Delicate and floreal
    Unmistakable Lowland Style

  9. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    bottle split with London Whisky Club. one of my favourites of 2019. 8/10, downgraded from 9 due to the slight petroly/new sneakers note in the nose which doesn't *quite* work here. but very, very good.
    • Nose
      freshly baked panettone with icing sugar, lemon drizzle cake with candied lemon. with a drop of water, there's a new pair of sneakers lurking in the background, rhubarb & custard. a rich old school nose that glues you to the glass.
    • Taste
      soft arrival on icing sugar, then all slightly-underripe mango with it's skin, guava, old books, some leather polish, mint leaves. absolutely tropical but soft, not on ripe esters. some fatness (tallow). long finish on the above notes.

  10. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Someone likes it very much, just my personal opinion.
    • Nose
      Bready, kind of dull, overbaked bread, cookies, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Bready, fresh grapes, old, a touch of grass and tropical fruits, very Irish, light body, hot and spicy.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky, spicey, toffee, peppercorn.
