    So this is my third try, it's just not mine.
    • Nose
      musty sour wine cellar, gingerbread spice
    • Taste
      a lot of pepper, kills all the other flavors, then the lemon appears, again the gingerbread mix, pepper ...
    • Finish
      Pepper! and then quickly angry ... and nothing

  7. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very nice nose, but especially the finish was not spectacular. The port wine influence is obvious. So if you want to taste a whisky with this influence, this could be on your (long) list.
    • Nose
      The port wine influence is evident: there are sweet, sugared notes, with strawberry, and dark cherry. There is also a musty note of a port wine cellar. Next to that, there is a nice Glengoyne profile of toffeed apple, pear, a bit of dried fruit, and sweet barley. At the end, some mint brings a cooling freshness.
    • Taste
      Still fruity, mostly on strawberry. Next to that, there is toffee, wine cellar, honeyed cereals, cinnamon, and clove. 
    • Finish
      The lower ABV shows in the finish, which is relatively short, and merely spicy. There is only a trace of fruit.

  9. Wild Thing scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Gingerbread and nuts. Subtle wood and malt aromas. Overall, very fruity.
    • Taste
      Very malty, strong citrus notes and dried apricots stand out.
    • Finish
      Medium long and dry.
