  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Oily and a little dirty, but not very fragrant. Rather prickly in the nose initially. Bits of apple, malt and vanilla.  Later honey.
    • Taste
      Oily and somewhat dirty, as the nose suggests. Nuts, apple, orange, spice and honey. Water makes it more dirty.
    • Finish
      Apple, pepper and nuts.

  5. Noface83 scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Nose: very set, citrus aromas and vanilla, old bread, malty sweetness
    Taste: sparkling, fresh grain, slightly buttery, roasted aromas of oak, vanilla and bittersweet notes of the oak in a surprisingly long finish.
    It gets a bit more fruity and milder with water, but it does not change much.
    Good drinkable but now nothing surprising here except in the finish gleams briefly above average quality.
