  1. Erik1908 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this one in the same lineup as MacErik. Very weak nose; basically no nose at all. Taste is "best" with hardly no finish. There are better single grains out there.

    Also sampled via the BBR tasting.

    I admit I'm increasingly impressed with the single grain category, and this was no exception. It has a lovely nose, with pine spices, lime/mohito notes, and a pleasant funky mustiness. The palate is a notch lower, but still very nice, with sweet vanilla and toffee.

  3. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Tasted at the Berry Bros and Rudd Whiskybase online virtual tasting, led by the excellent spirits master and storyteller Doug McIvor who bottled them.

    I think single grains are a fundamentally flawed style, although obviously there are many who would dispute this statement and probably rightly so. I just can't get over the sweetness of the corn and/or wheat and they always remind me of bourbon, which I don't really enjoy.

      The nose is pretty good, some unripe green plums and gooseberries, with a lot of vanilla
    • Taste
      76 76
      Here the sweetness of the grain overwhelms me....
    • Finish
      76 76
      ... and it lasts a long time with a lot of vanilla. Technically perhaps I should give this more points for the sustained finish but it isn't a style I enjoy.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Just a nice sweet grain, but nothing special about it, not very complex. Expected a little more actually for this aged whisky.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sweet, a lot of vanilla, fresh. A bit grassy, citrus too. Some glue now, not a very tough nose, pretty soft.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very smooth entrance, soft. Vanilla, sweet. Then a little tingling, some glue now as well.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Still very smooth, sweet, vanilla. Not too long. Some wood, ice cream sticks. A little of cigar tobacco now.
