  1. erizo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A great grain, superbly matured, nice sherry notes ... with 47.4% just right, with a little water the grain taste comes out clearly. Very tasty.

  3. ConvalRen scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Another superb sherry grain from North British.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Hazelnut and milk chocolate, raisins, pitted prunes, golden plum.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Medium milk to dark chocolate, intensely concentrated grape juice. Boiled wolfberries, ginseng root - slightly medicinal. Blueberries come to mind, like a german black forest chocolate cake or the Austrian Sacher torte.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finishing but diminishes quite fast in terms of the number of notes.

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I don't like it. This peculiar smoky note is not at all good for me.
    • Nose
      Wild berries. Coffee and chocolate. Caramel gone dark. Also aromatic oak that is reminiscent of wood smoke or roasted malt. Hints of rather dry rum. Some rye bread. Again and again a little lemon tea.
    • Taste
      Grape juice. Rum raisins. Again caramel, but gradually getting (too) dark. Memories of incense. Maybe something like burnt herbs. Then liquorice.
    • Finish
      Just a touch of frankincense. Grape seeds. Salmiac lozenges.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A few years ago I had never heard of sherry-matured grains. North British has repeatedly shown that it can be a winning combination.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Cherry, blackberry, mocha, lemonade and melon.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Blackberry, mocha, smoke, nougatine, ash and tonic.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Reese's (chocolate-covered peanut butter), mocha, cherry and smoke.
