  1. Myke scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    ui, something has changed here compared to the other batches. For me very different from the previous ones.
    Sweeter, softer / creamier, more fruit on the nose.
    The taste is sweeter, spicier and fruity than before.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get a second bottle? Maybe ...] mmmh, in this case actually, earned 86 points for me with an upward trend.

      initially a light vanilla aroma (I didn't have the clarity in the previous batches) and also more honey than usual.
      At the after-tasting I still have a lemon aroma, which is not sour, but rather sweet.
      Icing sugar sweetness, the spice of nutmeg and cinnamon, a nice load of herbs spreads out.
      White grapes have a slightly sour note, but this is dominated by sweet notes, which has a certain complexity for me, as there is a play between light acidity and rather sweet wine notes.
      For me the sweetest of all batches so far (1-6). He also doesn't seem as stormy young as the previous batches 3 and 5.
      Further light fruits, but in terms of color no longer light yellow (unripe pear, green apple), but juicy yellow (ripe pear, yellow / red apple).
      The hay note and sometimes also the vegetable note, which I always somehow had in all other batches, I no longer have here at all.
    • Taste
      86 86
      only a gentle start, but the spice is immediately present and presses on the tongue with full load. Fruits of apple, pear and apricot are more sweetish.
      Vanilla croissants with blossom honey.
      Softening.
      Second sip: spicy, fruity, ginger spiciness (youthful spiciness) presses on the tongue again, but then becomes softer / creamier again ... nice.
    • Finish
      83 83
      here one notices the youth again. Something remains of the oak tannins, it is also becoming drier, which is probably due to the STR barrels; otherwise it flew by quite quickly - but it shouldn't necessarily be expected otherwise.
      Light dark chocolate.

  2. Luigisim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Glorious dram.
    Distinctive herbal and floreal profile in such a young expression indicates a brilliant future for this distillery.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Fresh and smooth. A meadow where herbal notes are mixed with spring young flowers. Perfect dram for a summer night aperitif
    • Taste
      91 91
      You expect emptiness but it comes a full rich bouquet of plants with predominant lavender taste. Astonishing.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Due to youth maturation, it becomes harsh. But still keeping a strong profile similar to Metaxa.

    In terms of flavor and aroma profile, this sample can be attributed to a solid release of the basic level. And it is worth noting that its maturity is more like 8-10 years old, but not 3 years.
    • Nose
      Orange zest, light grape tones, oak, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Soft, sweetish, with moderate pepperiness and malty tones.
    • Finish
      Long, not difficult.
