  1. Archer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    As a summary, a comparison with the predecessor batch # 1:
    Batch # 1 59.3% bottled 20.02.2019 Vs. Batch # 2 60.9% bottled 24.09.2019
    The clear vanilla / caramel notes in the nose have both of them, but # 1 is more aggressive and aggressive. The smoke note is surprisingly more pronounced at # 2 than at # 1.
    # 1 has stronger pear notes on the tongue than # 2. Pear (going in the direction of a Williams fire) is always a sure indicator for a young whisky / spirit. # 2 actually works a bit further than # 1, although it's only just under seven months, separating the two in the bottling. In the finish # 2 looks a bit more pleasing and softer than # 1 - but not necessarily longer.
    A (fort-) development is definitely to be determined - and it goes in the right direction. It will be interesting to see what the next maturity level tastes like.
    • Nose

      A strong smoky note, which - mixed with a lot of vanilla - seems almost sweet. Nougat, marzipan, toffee, latte, caramel. In the background lurks a slightly metallic note that is not obtrusive, but reveals youthfulness. Apricot purée and orange peel leave a fruity component.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Dry onset with intense chocolate and cocoa flavor. Honey, malt, toffee, Werther's genuine, freshly brewed coffee, vanilla pudding. Fresh wood, spicy smoke. The naked number - 60.9% - screams for water, but in fact is not necessary. Green bark, lettuce water. Green apple and crushed, ripe pears. On the tongue he shows his youth more clearly than in the nose.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short and dry, smoke with increasing intensity. Apple wedges peppered with cloves.

    Glass of Spigelau Whisky Dram.
    Fragrance: wine and sour, malleable ... This is all unpleasant in the foreground, behind it there is peat and burnt matches ... A drop of water saves the situation somewhat ... 20
    Taste: bitterness, sour peat, damp earth, bee venom (ointment), rotted sweet fruits ... Hmm, not much fun 20
    Finish: long enough, but still too squeamish 20
    Balance 20. It remains a mystery, why was it released?

    No miracle happened ... we say goodbye to the age release (72)
    • Nose
      Well ... sweet, naughty ... ripe fruits, raw bread, sour peat ... vanilla caramel (18)
    • Taste
      Fruits, salt, ashes ... young but juicy (19)
    • Finish
      Finish dry, naughty ... almost naked cleric (17)

    Such a young age, its reasonable, I have less green feeling than batch 1.
    • Nose
      Smoke and peat, bacon, vanilla and salted caramel.
    • Taste
      Palinka, honey, malt, caramelized apple, smoke and peat.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, spicy.
