  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    By score not among the greatest whiskys I've tasted but certainly one of the most characterful.

    Thanks to member Waykid for his last sample. I could finally write a full note. 
    • Nose
      Old oak, salmiak, pool water, leather and faint tropical fruit. Very unusual for a Spey whisky. Faintly sweet, as if the mentioned fruit were quite ripe. The nose is detailed, classy and vivid. With water it sadly does not get better, rather it just becomes a bit messy and muted.
    • Taste
      Neat the body is too thin but the taste is great with a good balance of oak and liquorice, and something metallic in the tail. Water muddles it up. The body becomes more firm but the chiseled detail present neat is lost.
    • Finish
      Caskwood and taffy.

  2. Waykid scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This gets better and better with enough time in the glass, and in the bottle, really multilayered. A really fine drink and an example that also claret wood can work wonders. Bought a bottle few years back "blind" at the recommendation of the shopkeeper at Cadenhead's at Royal Mile in Edinburgh, haven't regret a minute.
    • Nose
      Tobacco, good brandy, strong and alcoholy at the beginning, bitter red apple thereunder, softens and develops hugely with enough time: coffee, a heap of autumn leaves, apricot, salmiak. Delicious apple and applehut, apple baked with maple syrup. A little smoke, coffee bean, honey. Develops to a softly round combination, a very good oakiness. Sweet liquor, savoury salmiak and chocolate-coffee. A little bit of sulphur as in matches. Splendid!
    • Taste
      Strong! Dried fruits, pale sherry, buttery sounds, liquorice, a hint of fresh bourbon. The salmiak comes to the fore, also the liquorice gets stronger, a sweet and grassy tone. Turns a bit bitterish, arrak-punch, sweet and herbal, fresh basil and thyme. A bit Jägermeister-like-sweetness but better and deeper. Turns a bit mussely with a longer time. 
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and malty. Salmiak, honey and coffee. Apple juice.

  3. Willie JJ scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is the best bit
    • Nose
      Toffee apples, stewed rhubarb, pears & honey. Lovely sweet nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet impact, slightly hot fizzy texture. A little antiseptic.
    • Finish
      Hot & drying.
