  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    ... I was very skeptical here ... but this Strathmill was convincing - a very decent malt! - unfortunately a bit expensive at 39.90 €!
    [Color] = almost clear, light white wine;
    • Nose

      fruity (pears, green apples, lemons), grassy, floral, vanilla;
    • Taste

    Color: straw, very bright
    (without coloring you only notice how light a whisky can still be after 11 years ;-) => but no disadvantage for the taste)

    - unusually fresh but good single cask whisky from ALDI Süd,
    - on a level like its "predecessors": BENRINNES 8 J. (2018), TEANINICH (2019)
    - the 3 years (in contrast to its "predecessors", however, are not really noticeable
    - but for 40 € an honest, solid one and for those who like it a bit stronger a really recommendable single cask bottling at a fair price
    • Nose
      Citrus fruit, grapefruit, honeydew melon, slightly sweet, fresh, you can't smell old age, but appear significantly younger
    • Taste
      Strong full start, honey sweetness combined with a fresh fruity note, citrus fruit, oak spice in the back, here you can already tell the 11 years in the oak barrel
    • Finish
      medium-long, soft finish;
      long warm aftertaste with spice (oak) and a slight sweetish touch
