  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Whisky, you might say, delicious. A lot of sweet, fruity, floral and, above all, wine aromas. Taste is poetry and the essence of fruit sweetness with the dominance of apricots, ripe apples and peaches. What is gently disturbing me in all this?
    Maybe too much of that oak, which partially neutralizes all the sweetness, although most importantly it is not leading.

    Water drop....
    The aroma is more sugar-like, even more fruity notes, there are cloves, oak to a very delicate degree. Here on Plus!
    Creamy flavor, multitude of ripe peaches and apricots. Also on Plus!
    Finish rounder, with sugar, vanilla and cherry compote. Cool!!!
    For a drop of water, I would add an additional 3 points to the total.
    To sum up with a drop of water ... (23.5; 24; 23.5; 22) 93 points!

    It's a pity that it was only a small sample, I'd love to buy a bottle, unfortunately its cost is higher than my current budget. I am writing this Glentroes 19 YO to my notebook in the section "Must be purchased ... As soon as I win the main prize in Totolotka!"

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great nose and palate
    a sniffing whisky
    the finish disappointed
    no water to give !!
    • Nose
      Vanilla becomes more, caramel, green apple, sweet chewing gum, light oak goes well with the time and comes to the fore, peach, bananas in the background
    • Taste
      full and round on the palate
      sweet fruits, light rice waffles, caramel, very light oak, light malt, sweet, spicy, becomes tart
    • Finish
      rather short
      well, nothing except oak and sweetness
