    dry wood, some vanilla, a hint of honey and melon on the nose. Everything covered with a light layer of dust. An old barn for the nose. All in all, it's pretty boring and flat.

  4. sengaia scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A really pleasant and soft speyside style with the emphasis on bourbon barrel maturation. A fruity nose with oak spice and vanilla. The palate continues this and adds pine notes, it is a wonderfully integrated dram that is held back by the low strength. At cask strength this would score higher, as it is it’s still very enjoyable.

    Subtle and rich but the wood is slightly overpowered. Expected a bit more due to the age, however it's still a proper dram. Especially in this price range.
    • Nose
      80 80
      A whiff of citrus freshness, but it disappears quite soon once it's opened up. Dried fruit notes with some honey and cacao. Sultana biscuits and a touch of hay.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sultana biscuits again with some more dried fruits and cacao. Quite light mouthfeel with a bite of oak.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Cacao and oak.

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    I don't like it that much today, the 18 is a very clear step more intense and tasty, this one is older on paper, but a tad weaker in terms of aroma, just too little intense, too "flat", despite the recognizable age notes .
    • Nose
      light and fleeting, sweetish, some oak, light fruits, a very flat and fleeting nose compared to the 18, albeit with fine fruit aromas and a certain note of maturity.
    • Taste
      sweetish, tart, oak spiciness, quite pleasant so far, not as tart as expected. But even here not the big aromatic range.
    • Finish
      rather short, very nice, some wood, a few fruits, some astringent mintiness.
