  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A little less oak-forward and certainly fruitier, although the palate is spicy and somewhat earthy as well.
    • Nose
      Earthy and a soft graininess, but mostly raisins, figs and prunes, as well as tinned apricots and heather honey. Comparatively much fruitier than its younger sibling. Just a thin copper/sour note, but mainly rather ripe and lush with a tinge of fennel.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel and the fruitiness remains, rather a bit brighter than the nose suggests with tangerines and sultanas. But also more room for pepper, clove and nutmeg, as well as some charred oak and sandalwood. Finally a whiff of mint.
    • Finish
      Tobacco, a whiff of pine and ending on juicy red fruits.
