  1. Macerik scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant surprise for an 11-year-old .... A small explosion in the mouth that, in my opinion, could last a little longer. Surprising taste in a positive sense. With a drop of water, the nose comes loose a little better, but influences the finish disadvantage. I prefer pure.

      in the beginning some ABV that participates, but after 10 minutes it is clearly in the background. I smell a lot of white fruit, fresh and citrus ..... very pleasant
    • Taste
      87 87
      sweet notes, something from gustard, nuts, sherry and finds something of the "cigar malt" come out (mortlach) and that's a compliment. Very pleasant surprise
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length, a bit of wood and a bit dry at the end

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice and solid whisky, with a nice mixture of sweet, fruity and spicy notes. Very attractive and pleasant one for sure.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity at first, then some spices, pepper, cinnamon. Milkchocolate, caramel, coffee. Then some red fruits, prunes, and ripe apples.
    • Taste
      88 88
      At first it appears to be smooth, then the alcohol starts working and tickers the tongue, pepper. Also some fruitiness, oranges, peach. Some sweetness, honey, milkchocolate. Red fruits as well, I find some straw- and raspberry. Also a bit spicy. Full taste.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still strong and warming, some peppers. Chocolate again, some fruutiness, licorice now, and cigar tobacco in the pretty long finish. Also some hints of rubber and fake leather.
