  1. Bouliii did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This was for sale on whiskybroker for £70. Be careful of people trying to sell this for 3 times this price...

    ***
    ????: light gold,
    ????: warm sweet, pleasantly bourbon, sweet-grain, intense, feel the power! It opens with warm sweetness and vanilla,
    ????: sweet, smooth, intense but also delicate, nice biting, sooooo tasty !!! Though the sweetness breaks into a slight sourness at the end.
    ????: sweet, quite long, sweet and sour: /
    *
    Very nice dram. He might not have those sour notes at the end of the palette and in the finish. It might be ok for someone, such a breakthrough. But it bothers me a bit. It is a pity because it is very okay!

    nice dram, but nothing outstanding either
    • Nose
      Yellow fruits, apples and herbal notes, vanilla cream, some honey, nice oak flavor with some spices
    • Taste
      here also the yellow fruits, some salt, honey, oak, later the spices (clove) and oak are added
    • Finish
      medium length, light and yellow fruits, the wood is more noticeable at the back, slightly dry

    Unfortunately, overly cask-driven to the point of over maturation. Extremely strong wood influence that is not well integrated. An extra point for the price though (still decent for GBP 70 a bottle)!

    • Taste
      Fruits, pepper, chocolate, spices (22)

  9. Mascht scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Light and shadow, beautifully complex, old and solid, but unfortunately too much oak
    • Nose
      90 90
      fresh and light fruity, very malty with baked apple, vanilla cream, freshly cut grass and a little rose soap
    • Taste
      87 87
      intense, complex and mouth-filling after honey, green apples, chocolate fudge but unfortunately a lot of bitter oak
    • Finish
      86 86
      very long, the oak wort is massive, nice after cinnamon and cloves but too strong

  10. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Glass: Blender's
    It so happened that the nectar stood in a glass under the lid for 15 hours. So we take this fact into account.
    Nose: you immediately understand that it is 20+ malt ... honey, flowers, dust, a drop of polish, salty cucumber rosol. Unusual mixture of aromas.
    Taste: honey sweet, mint, then varnish, lots of varnish and ground black pepper.
    Finish: long enough, peppered with oak bitterness.
    Malt is well balanced. I don’t know why, but Molt is not attracted to himself. I do not want to try it. Just not mine. Not biased - 87.
