  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 91 points Moderator

    Very fruity and spicy - very drinkable - very good!
    Just the price tag is a bit tough...

      Honeycomb, fruity, yellow fruits, apple, pear, peach, banana, quince, ripe apricot, little spices, pepper, whiffs of solvent - very good!
    • Taste

      Oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, more ripe fruits, more apricot, jam, banana, peach, apple, pear, little pepper, hints of ginger, hints of varnish - even better!

  4. Double Barrel scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Brilliant nose, brilliant attack but it doesn't keep all its promises and inexorably dive.
    You can use the empty glass in your dressing room to keep moths away but you better continue with paraffin, that will be much cheaper!
