  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    My first Swede. I have to say, they make a really good fire. The sherry from the sherry barrel was nonexistent, but the oak is quite nice to remember. That was "re-re-refill" with a few years of maturity.
    • Nose
      subtle vanilla, but above all a nice, almost creamy fruitiness. The fruits are somehow bright, but it does not exactly jump me straight. A portion of licorice and in the background a light, but not to be overlooked oak wood note.
    • Taste
      The whisky has 51.6% according to the label and it is also great. Nice start. Unconcrete fruit notes, lots of liquorice, with a nice oak note.
    • Finish
      Oak, some gum, a fruity sweet note and finally a few oak notes. Only discreetly bitter and slightly dusty.

  3. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    This whisky tastes like a very young one. Allmost undrinkable, needs water badly.
    • Nose
      Very strong, burns my dear nose. So much alcohol. Some toffee and banana.
    • Taste
      Powerful, spirity. Strong and some sweet flavors in the background.
    • Finish
      Very long and spicy.
