  1. Simon Stood scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not bad, but it looks like it's been overexposed in the barrel longer than necessary. Oak notes began to prevail over fruity
    Balance 22
    • Nose
      Ripe fruits, apples, gooseberries, lacquer notes. Nice, sophisticated, bourbon profile. 22
    • Taste
      Dry, dried apples and pears, tannin is present. 22
    • Finish
      Long enough peppery, skin, astringency. 22

  2. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very calm and harmonious whisky. Perhaps you expect something more from such an age-old whisky, but drinking it is at least pleasant
    • Nose
      89 89
      Calm and requires attention and focus. Ripe fruits, bananas, apples and pears, aged dried fruits, a little vanilla and cream
    • Taste
      88 88
      Lemons, salted caramel, ripe apples, bananas
    • Finish
      88 88
      Salted lemon, some spices and wood

    all evening I sniff an empty glass, in due course it opens new notes of fruit and Montpasier
    • Nose
      88 88
      great nose! sweet apples and mountain herbs
    • Taste
      86 86
      familiar bitterness, hear oak, then apple, pear and sugar-sprinkled shortbread cookies. relatively low strength of 50.8% is perceived as 59%, but not repulsive
    • Finish
      86 86
      the bitterness slowly recedes and for a long time prevails over fruits and cookies

  5. alex..w..fan scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    20 19 20 20 79 - hard, prickly, nature cannot be fooled, or rather cubes ... Light Granularity is everywhere, from beginning to end, where there is more, where less ... it is completely sad (((ok, in the summer it did not go to me at all , I will try in the cool in the fall.

    20 20 20 20 80 - a long time I got a long time, I seem to have gotten better, but no, the taste is the same flat ... and the sadness of the aftertaste, I don't know what to savor here (

    Concerning its profile, it could be mistaken for a good Littlemill.
