  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    If you guys from the Glasgow Distillery, try it without Virgin Oak and dare to bottle a naked young Lowlander.
    • Nose
      young, fresh, citrus, quite similar to the other very well-known Glasgow distillery that burns three times. The fresh wood brings vanilla and spicy aromas, a young but successful nose.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, however, the usual problem of 1770, the fresh oak dominates too much, too much fresh wood. He can't hide the youth either and comes across as a bit thin, and also a bit bitter.
    • Finish
      The finish is bitterly sweet and at first very oak-accentuated, but over time there are also beautiful aromas of grapefruit and zest, classic Lowland, overwhelmed by the oak.

    I don't like it, I liked the 2019 release a lot better, this one is solid
    here the Virgin Oak comes through too much for me
    But the distillery has potential and I will keep an eye on it
    • Nose
      Vanilla, sweet becomes less, oak (freshly sawn) !!, slightly leather increases, very tart from the virgin oak, slightly dark caramel
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate
      heavily flowery, waffles, raffia armchairs, caramel (so Rolo), then there is a lot of oak (really tart and spicy) too much
      slightly vanilla again late
    • Finish
      short to medium long
      bitter, spicy, oak, light leather, astringent

    Wow, this dram is delicious. The nose is multifaceted. Fresh, fruity, delicate, deep. Unfortunately the magic smell vanishes after short time in the glass.
    Nose: 23 - Body: 21 - Finish: 20 - Balance: 22 => 86
