  1. Saftkenner scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    No complexity monster, but very welcome that it was bottled with a strong 50%.
    • Nose
      83 83
      The alcohol is relatively well integrated and only slightly noticeable. Strong vanilla, brine, garden herbs, a touch of pear, caramel, freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Strong acceleration, seems slightly out of round. Pear, salty sea breeze, peach, caramel, dry leaves, subtle oak.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length finish, slightly dry. Pear, caramel, cardboard.

  3. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty. Well-integrated notes of dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, honey and a subtle peppery spiciness on the finish. A little more alcohol would certainly have done the whisky good and brought it even more complexity.

      Vanilla, fudge
    • Taste
      88 88
      chocolate, some wood
    • Finish

  6. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Top Dram! Whisky the way you sometimes don't need it any other way. Fruity, spicy, strong and "masculine" due to the increased alcohol strength. Great value for money.

    It just tastes good!
    Easy to nibble away on a mild summer evening. Scottish simplicity and modesty as I like it.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Vanilla, caramel, apple. Maybe some more peach.

      Simple and tasty!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Lots of intense citrus notes and again apple.
      Slightly spicy, the 50% even bring some peppery "heat" with them. But doesn't bother, doesn't really look alcoholic or even bubbly.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Pleasant sweetness with vanilla, again tangy citrus notes and a peppery spice. Delicious and refreshing.

  7. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Chalky, ashy, fruity sweet and a bit of nutty char.

    Palate: Fruity, mildly smoky and oily, ashy and nutty.

    Finish: Long -> Sooty smoke and oil.
