  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The nose is great, but the bitterness in the mouth is almost too violent. The finish shows only oak dominated and hardly the corn anymore. Hmm, I still don't know what to think of the two blue corns.
    • Nose
      Extremely sweet and dense nose. Popcorn, vanilla, butter, spices, oak. As with the Baby Blue, only delicious. Not dusty, juicy sweet.
    • Taste
      phew, there's a bitterness in there, the skin is gone. Spices, lots of wood, massive bitterness, mint.
    • Finish
      The finish is beautiful on wood and spices and still gives an idea of the bitterness in the mouth.

  9. HammerHead scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A candied sweetness in the nose with apple, caramel and toffee. Tastes very young though with loads of pepperiness all the way through the finish.
