  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I like it very much - fantastic quality for old age - the style reminds me a bit of Craigellachie 23.
    • Nose
      White oak with honey, heather, mild, soft, delicate, dried flowers, anise, so creamy - magical - old, orange, plum or pear, a hint of smoke, some tobacco
    • Taste
      Delicate sweet flowers, soft - creamy spicy oak, pepper, white chocolate
    • Finish
      still the great oak - a bit bitterness - reminiscent of dark chocolate. quite subtle complex spicy notes - quite filigree but long

  3. Nosingbär scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Wow. 89 points. I could not have imagined that a 12-year-old whisky with 40% to such a thing is capable.
    • Nose
      Whisky from another world. Acts like another spirit. Creamy, sweet honey aromas, herbs. Ripe, bright fruits on the threshold of overripe. Mango, passion fruit. Vanilla. Herbal sweetener. A little anise, fennel. The sweetness is incredibly deep and complex, difficult to describe.
    • Taste
      sweet, slightly bitter, spicy. Herbs, deep, spicy, dark honeys, vanilla. Creamy.
    • Finish
      Passion fruit and again a lot of spicy, dark honey flavors, gentle, bitter oak spice.

  8. helmutgw scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    easy to drink, but not expressive 28.01.2017 77
    • Nose
      F: Caramel - pressed cork N: sweet and malty, a little alcohol, yellow fruits
    • Taste
      light body, slightly alcoholic, fruity - sweet, but volume is missing
    • Finish
      short, so

  9. hartist scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Still available at auction for a pittance.
    • Nose
      Properly structured, elegant in addition, we feel dint a buttered material. Pretty aromas of flowers and aromatic herbs (including mint) evolving on fruits baking in the oven (apples and pears), honey (peat briar honey) and accompanied by butter biscuits.
    • Taste
      I appreciate the smooth and creamy style, and this is the case here with a mouth also round and rich. The nose burst on the palate in a balancing duet between fruity-malty notes and more austere notes (vegetal, woody, a little coffee).
    • Finish
      Enough long enough not to spoil the fun, with a veil of wood smoke rising.
