  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Nutty, tart. A little strawy and a few bouillon cubes. Very soft and not so fresh.

  7. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Extremely fragrant and fruity. Ripe apple aromas, floral accents, fragrant hay, flowering heather, cornflower honey, lush maltiness and a fine minerality.
    • Taste
      Full start with floral and malty-oily aromas. Then oak, perfumed apple note such as Jakob Fischer or rose apples, as well as hay and a tender earthiness. Overall complex and teasing.
    • Finish
      Medium length, robust malty, fragrant hay, oak and later also dark chocolate.

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A surprisingly good confectionery mole, expected a worse, very good flavor, rich and deep enough, the taste also tries to match and as a whole it turns out, with blemishes and blots, but worthy of flavor, the aftertaste unfortunately failed to maintain the set bar - too poor and subtilally. In general, for a 10-year-old speaker, a very decent result.
    • Nose
        Sugar glaze, jam, cake "birch", various pastries - shortbread cookies, sugar powder, syrup, honey, then forward put forth fruit and flower tones.
    • Taste
      Sweet, peppery, cream, cookies on melted milk, lemon, lemon zest, fresh bitterness of oak, young bark, soft ginger.
    • Finish
      Sweet-oak, astringent, grapefruit crust, flavor of sweetener, lemon, sorrel.

    The smell is pleasant, then it goes down and the reverberation is to survive and what to go on.
    • Nose
      Grass, flowers, ripe pears, apricots, woody, vanilla, malt. Such a light, pleasant fragrance with moderate spiciness
    • Taste
      Cereals, woodvitost, honey, malt, vanilla, licorice, spiciness. It gradually drips and adds to peppery spiciness and, in general, gradually bitter bitter - but it is still within normal limits.
    • Finish
      In the reverberation of malt, honey, cereals, licorice and a good dose of pepper spiciness - once again it goes into bitterness and sometimes it is beginning to feel quite a bit even because the reverberation is relatively long.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant surprise! Don't expect full power in your face, as it is at 43%. Nevertheless, the profile is quite appealing to me. For the fans of earthy stuff: buy a bottle before it's too late ;)
    • Nose
      Hey, this one smells quite earthy and mossy. A trace of peat smoke, heather honey, moss, tobacco leaves, malt, marzipan, and juicy peach. A pleasant surprise. 
    • Taste
      A bit weak and watered down on the palate. Though, it's still rather earthy. Tobacco leaves, cough syrup, some distant peat. Then, peach, apple sauce, and apricot. This is followed by heather honey and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium length, slightly drying on ginger and lemon zest, and otherwise still malty, honeyed and a tad earthy.

    This is quite interesting on the nose but the palate and finish are quite unbalanced. The taste is overpowered by tannins while the rest of the more subtle flavours can’t seem to stand up in this bitter violence. With some water it becomes slightly better and spicier (especially on the pepper front). It’s a flavor battle.

    All in all to unbalanced for my taste.

    The nose is full of cereal and grist. Notes of peels and malt

    with wood shavings and hay. The palate is of good body with a decent sweetness

    and plenty of fruit with barley sugar and peppy oak. The finish is long with

    gristy tannins.

    Score is for a bottle from 1994

  24. Feusi scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Something sprity in the nose. In the mouth it comes a spring meadow with sweet fruity and grassy notes. A medium and sweet finish. A fruity sweet experience, funny and nice in the glass, i like it at any time.
