  1. webturtle scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    For me one of the best so far ...
    I like that it's really just one type of barrel.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Tender smoke over the typical apple, pear nose.
      Then lovage (Maggie), dark ripe fruits, plums, plums. Toffee.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very little smoke in the mouth, but there. Tastes like Maggie, sticky, sweet caramel and honey.
      Plums and red grapes. A very slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Very long and flavorful.
      When you exhale, smoke or the Maggie keeps coming through.

  2. Wum scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    Right up front ... I rarely give a 92 rating.
    This whisky knocks me out though! WOW! Exactly my loot scheme. And that with a 4 year YOUNG whisky!
    • Nose
      Very, very sweet, slightly smoky, sherry, raisins, dark fruits, but not too much. On the one hand, it comes across as very ripe, but at the same time has youthful, fresh citrus notes, a lot of pear, a lot of vanilla
    • Taste
      strong start, very sweet, sherry, cream pastries, honeydew melon ?, clearly smoke, but very pleasant
    • Finish
      Long finish that remains very intense and tasty.
