  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nothing to rave about. Quite unnatural tbh. It speaks of added flavouring and an unbalanced composition of flavours.

    Don't knock your socks off, but it's nice to drink!

      Somewhat metallic, some citrus, some vanilla, in the background a small nutmeg and a raisin
    • Taste
      82 82
      Powerful start, warming vanilla, dried fruits, pepper!
    • Finish
      81 81
      The pepper will die away and there will be a little wood left.

    N: This is a blended malt [further reading: Aqvavitae]. Could this be a blend of the previous Miltonduff and Glen Moray? The first two drams of this flight would make for a meaningful lead-in, if this was the case. A lightly seasoned peppery leathery sherried raisin-led note allows glimpses of a robust oily bourbon-matured malt underside – Glenlossie, Linkwood, Benrinnes, for example – yet the balance is for now, erm, in the balance.

    T: The result on the palate neat is a sweet tasty one, but the finish over-powers the spirit. Add water, and the scales recalibrate, somewhat. Then we’ve an ethanol-strong malty experience, at first. Give it an hour, however, and the sherry cask characteristics [now at the sides of the palate], are desirably drier, the leathery maltiness now bound with the sherry-syruped makeup.

    F: Malty < raisiny soft toffeed slightly rubbery conclusion with just a hint of vanilla.

    C: I like it. It’s not refined or complex, but a contemporary-styled treatment has worked for this single cask offering. If one were concocting a flight of whiskies to demonstrate balance, this could be an example of one skirting the edge of such a cask > spirit equilibrium.

  6. Sporx scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Grape-fruity, spicy notes, a little sweet, a little Christmas market, almonds, becoming fruity

    Taste: sweet, leather, anise, nut

    Finish: long to medium long, chocolate
