  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Crates full of ripe citrus fruits, tender oak, pungent malt and slightly roasted aromas. With water: vanilla, lemon ice cream, floral aromas.
    • Taste
      Soft and voluptuous in the body. Begins delicately flowery. Freshly mowed hay meadow? Fine oak and creamy-citrus like a lemon roll. With water: flowery and spicy.
    • Finish
      Long, pleasantly dry floral, oak.

    Funny whisky again, in a tasing lineup, it got buried & didn't stand a chance & I rated it around 72. On it's own though without any other whiskies to colour the palate first, there were some very nice floral/fruity notes nicely balanced with wood and I would've scored it somewhere in the 80s.
    • Nose
      woody (rotten sawdust) +, leather o, mint o
    • Taste
      1st (after other whiskies in tasting lineup) - prickly, more spirity than anything else, very sweet in the beginning.
      2nd (without other whiskies before...) - sweetness but w more complexity than before
    • Finish
      1st (after other whiskies in tasting lineup) - prickly, flat-ish, some sort of spices in the background - butr very faint, old sofa cushions.

      2nd (without other whiskies before...) - summer fruits & floral notes on spices on a nice woody base
