  1. craide scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Interesting and tasty malt. Somehow something else, although not so varied. But tasty and with a good, harmonious finish.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Light notes of fresh ginger, some citrus and vanilla. In addition, a light charcoal touch without appearing smoky. Subtle fruitiness of oranges, bananas with malt and grain aromas. In the background some fresh wood and slightly bitter coffee.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Creamy, oily, slightly tingling and only a little spiciness or spiciness noticeable. In addition, there is a subtle feeling of ash in the mouth. Somehow different. The fruits are lost even more behind woody notes. But it doesn't give the impression that the fruits are missing either. A little milk chocolate out the backside and more coffee.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long finish, dry, slightly dusty, earthy, fruity towards the end

      Fruit. Pleasant. Pretty full. Ripe fruit. Peaches. Maybe in sweet syrup. Cooked fruit. A bit of sweet, light cream underneath. Maybe a pinch of spices and citrus.

  6. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The recharred Hogshead has provided a strong barrel-heavy whisky with its own character, which would not have been expected purely based on the age.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fully fruity and sweet, in the style of Maoam chewy candies, becomes more diverse over time, oak is added. Lively acidity with citrus, the alcohol can be noticed on the nose.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The oak initially bites heavily on the tongue and creates a violent bizzle. Then sweet honey, karamall, tropical fruit (passion fruit), towards the end clearly spicy again.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long and clearly oak-dominated. Honey and fruit disappear quickly, the oak seasoning ensures a coated tongue, becomes dry, strong espresso.

    (blind)
    • Nose
      Hubba Bubba Tutti Frutti! Very sweet and fruity, honey in the background, somehow also vinous, wine gum, over time the artificial effect decreases, the fruit becomes more authentic, some hay and woody notes are added, acidity increases with a tropical touch towards pineapple, passion fruit
    • Taste
      Still very sweet, fruits are there again, red, full, sweet, I have the vinous acidity again, around the back there are even more bitter notes With wood felling, a little spice, ginger and honey
    • Finish
      A touch of cappuccino but quite short overall
