  1. Beatroute Malt scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Solvent, shoe polish, some marzipan, grass and hay on the nose. Taste: leather, again a bizarre but pleasant solvent note, spices, sweet & sour. Long finish. Very nice indeed with a lot going on.

  2. aspa scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    nose
    Sweet, dignified, soft and yet powerful. Forest honey, rock sugar, slightly spicy and at the same time sweet oak. Almost a bit like a sherry maturation, but there was probably only a bourbon barrel at work if I understand the label correctly. With a little time it gets tart and spicy, although the sweetness of the honey still remains. Nice complexity and very tasty sticky. This nose knows how to please. There is more old oak, some maple syrup. With more time in the glass, more and more oak and slightly dusty wood.

    taste
    Very soft, supple, sweetly caressing the tongue - but still very aromatic and powerful aromas. So alcohol has to be perfectly integrated! It continues with the game between sweet, spicy forest honey and tart, now slightly bitter oak. Some dough and light notes of grass and fresh hay. Slight acidity of citrus fruits and again a hint of brown sugar and figs, so again a touch of sherry barrel even if that wasn't in the game. Furthermore, an extremely drinkable dram.

    Exit
    Medium-length or rather short, but otherwise continue in the same flow as before. Spicy, tart oak dominates and is surrounded by sweet forest honey. A little menthol is added and then stays in the mouth and on the palate for the longest. A nice feeling that leads to the next sip.

    Conclusion
    A very tasty and dangerously drinkable bottling, definitely a bottle that I would also like to have at home and that would then probably be emptied faster than expected. Great paints!
    N-91, T-90, F-88 for a good 90 points

  3. Yarema scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Delicious whisky with a wonderful aroma of freshness, acacia honey and cucumber breeze ...
    The taste is sweetish, slightly woody, delicate. The finish is easy and elusive ...

    • Nose
      88 88
      Very, very sweet direct, a bit moist, but neither dark nor light, slightly nutty like hazelnut and children's chocolate bars.
      Unfortunately far too little complex for its age, too little oak, too little depth and too much boring roundness. So definitely not a bad whisky, actually very tasty, but for the key data far too little for a whisky that will be remembered for a long time.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very round and creamy, again a lot of nice sweetness, even a bit of bitterness here at last. The result is again just a tasty, but arbitrary malt
    • Finish
      87 87
      Stay sweet

  10. jttoft did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Lovely, lovely, lovely.
    (Excuse the rather short notes.)
    • Nose
      Perfumed citrus. Lovely old bourbon cask.
    • Taste
      Settled, old, lightly acidic. Again citrus.
    • Finish
      Lovely and delicious.

  13. maurisso scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Spicy, elegant, waxy, long, balanced. Pure goodness.

    I add the rece de n'amico de today 18 December Dumilaevventi:

    Atomic bomb.
    Nose on resins and essential, candied fruit on which apricot stands out, then pastry is made, never cloying, and a balsamic recall melted with honey.
    Masterful mouth, perfectly integrated alcohol, creamy, enveloping and coherent, return of essential notes of wood, then spreads on cream, almond and something vaguely citrus to then recall licorice and mint and close on a delightfully balsamic finish, incredibly refreshing . From saw.

  15. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Candy and fruity sweetness.
    • Nose
      Peaches and cream, faint rhubarb, cocktail bitters, golden syrup and agave syrup.
    • Taste
      Growing fruitiness, pistachio nuts, white chocolate and hints of dark chocolate. Faint white pepper and lemon sherbet
    • Finish
      Lingering fruit syrup with pineapples, cherries and kiwi fruit. Bramble jelly and a distant hint of a dunnage warehouse.
