  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very full and fruity, tasteful. The 46% Abv suits this whiskey very well, perfectly balanced. Very pleasant.
    • Nose
      Very full, intense and fruity. Spicy, orange, candy-like. Red fruits, berries. Plants as well, 'green'. And a hint of banana.
    • Taste
      Smooth, but full bodied. Then some pickering mouthfeel. Very fruity, red fruits, berries, oranges. Honey.
    • Finish
      Pretty powerful, fruity, red fruits, raspberry, honey. Candy-like again, Haribo. Pretty long, some licorice.

  5. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    First impression: it does not match the level
    the older teasels with the branded ones
    tropical fruit notes.

    The Madeira cask finish is, if anything,
    only to guess. As a lover of
    good Madeira, expected a little more.

    Still a very good whiskey and I am
    curious whether he is in the opened bottle
    will develop positively.

    The presentation and packaging of the bottle
    is spectacular. Great bottle with heavy
    Cork and wide metal handle.
    The whole in a very beautiful and very
    sturdy box with magnetic closure and
    the bottle embedded in high quality
    Foam. A big movie theater.
    The collector will be delighted there.

    Really enjoyable whiskey for the sweet tooth from Teeling here.

    Review: https://youtu.be/-bCuW111WF0
    • Nose
      85 85
      Overripe bananas, dried fruits, raisins, acetone/shoe polish, leather, cherry pie, buttery cinnamon, nutmeg.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Oily, full, good mouthfeel. Nice alcohol level. Begins with a large dose of muscovado sugar, which balances nicely with just hints of oak. Then come cloves, marzipan, ripe bananas, cherry pie, nutmeg, herbs, and just a slight hint of prunes.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, warm, spicy, with hints of tobacco and oak. Sweetness is nicely subdued.

  10. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      intensely sweet; Caramel; fresh citrus note; slightly grassy; Malt; Seasoning (very light Christmas in the form of carnation)
    • Taste
      soft; sweet; beautiful, spicy wood; Citrus; light cinnamon; dark dried fruit; now and then a hint of herbs;
    • Finish
      spicy; now comes a nice nut; minimally tart, but still round. I really like it
