  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Second tasting after Kilkerran 15yo for Taiwan.

    Here the nose is a little scary, because very focused on the solvent. But on the palate, we go back up, and the appearance on the finish of peat is a real gift.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Quite powerful nose. We have a nice dose of solvent.
      Green wood, varnish, anise, liquorice. Very light smoke.
      From citrus scone. Lemon. Dust film.
      Not that sexy and rather aggressive.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth it is rounder and a little more balanced than in the nose.
      The fruit stands out more, on citrus: lemon, lime. On yellow fruits: peach, plum.
      We have a nice sea breeze, and a nice dose of eucalyptus which makes everything very fresh.
      Wood and smoke are receding.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The smoke returns, and is accompanied by a veil of oily peat. Spray, candied lemon, and eucalyptus complete the picture. Very cool.

  4. Dris scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Lush creamy and buttery bourbon cask. I much prefer it to the really fresh and floral Open Day 2019 15yo

  6. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    One degree better than Open Day, not bad, but not too exciting whisky.
    • Nose
      Varnished wood, vanilla, sawdust, musty cellar and yellow fruits.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Citruses, sawdust, honey and pepper. Touch of yellow fruits.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, oaky.
