  1. lukejb scored this whisky 85 points Newbie

    A fine example of a upper low range whisky, flavours are their for you and it's not overwhelming at all.

  2. SimondeVette scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    A weak version of the Glengoyne 15. I've got the idea that the barrels used are not as good as the Glengoyne 15's.
    • Nose
      Grass, green apples
    • Taste
      Grain, vanilla, a little bit of roasted hazelnut, milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Bitter wood, a bit of caramel

    Ralfy review 876: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSK7j79aGDc (88/100).

    "Big step-up actually from the 10 year old."

    Very quickly loses its aroma in the nose. With a little water it becomes even softer and sweeter and also loses its flavor.
    Otherwise similar to the 10 year old.
    • Nose
      70 70
      Smells like eagle owl first.
      Sweet, in contrast to the 10, it smells of almost nothing very quickly.
    • Taste
      80 80
      velvety, soft, very sweet, then spicy and tingling.
      Very light oak.
    • Finish
      80 80
      medium length, dry and spicy

    • Nose
      Sultana biscuits, oil, softly distant lavender, coffee, sherry, honey and dried fruit.
    • Taste
      The whisky actually opens surprisingly soft. Clear sultana, vanilla, honey, nesquick, a little pepper and nougat.
    • Finish
      Bitter, dry, spicy, medium long.

  7. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A lovely daily dram and quite affordable too.
    • Nose
      A hint of dried fruits, sultana and figs. Lemons in the back. Plenty of honey and a lovely apple pie. Oranges. A little bit of toasted oak. Sweet cherries. Nougat. Later also pink grapefruit.
    • Taste
      Very Orangina like (a kind of lemonade) at first. :-) Vanilla and caramel. Milk chocolate and a hint of some lovely warming spices, mostly going towards black pepper and nutmeg. Nougat here too.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and Orangina again. A hint of sweet grapefruit and caramel.
