  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This could have become really good with a few more years in the cask. It's enjoyable but I would have bottled it later.
    • Nose

      Apple, vanilla sugar, banana, lemon and a whiff of smoke.
    • Taste

      Malt, apple, banana, burnt caramel, smoke and a bit of grass.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Burnt caramel, banana, vanilla and apple.

  2. ConvalRen scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Short and dull. Just the usual AAB stuff without much cask influence, while I enjoy it, there nothing much to rave or say about.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Odd whisky actually. In the nose, the peaty influence is quity modest, to the back. In the taste the smoky element gets much more prominent (without getting really peated), resulting in a strange combination of smoky, bitter orange.
    The nose is clearly the most pleasant part of this dram, but it's certainly an interesting one overall.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, citrus, orange, at some moments a little flash of smoke passes along. Some candy sweetness, vanilla as well. Later on, the scents gets heavier, darker on fruits.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Fruity, spicy, pepper. Orange, with some more permanent whiff of smoke now, and a strange kind of bitterness on the background. Also some candy sweetness. Later on, it gets a little flat mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      More smooth now, again a combination of smoke and orange, a touch of bitterness, a little flat taste now. Middle long finish.

    I like these experiments very much.. but this one is not flying high in my book…
