  1. Allandale scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Promises much, delivers little.
    • Nose
      Big and bold with light funkiness and chamois leather. Chocolate notes are very dominating . Not so complex rather appealing.
    • Taste
      Sadly here its dies. Not so complex. Chocolate again is there but  is very thin. Not much power. Light notes.
    • Finish
      Light nutiness.

    To mix with the "100 Proof" of comparable time and a drop of water, harmonizes immediately and finally gives the steam after he asks. Thanks Ralfy

    • Nose

    • Taste
      8,5 Dość delikatna, słodka z nutami mięty, goździka, ananasa, dębu, wiśni, kakao, zboża i cynamonu.
    • Finish
      8,5 Wystarczająco długi z nutą herbaty, jęczmienia, marcepanu, goździka, jeżyny oraz ciemnej gorzkiej czekolady.

  10. m884 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sherry, minimal oak, dried red fruits/berries, with water a bit tropical fruitsMouth: sweetness, Sherry, christmas spices, very smoothFinish: Sherry, minimal wood influence, a bit dry, rather weak all in allComment: I prefer the Aberlour 10 to this one. This one is just less interesting and one dimensional. The sherry is there, but the rest falls a bit flat.
