  1. gunnie76 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This one reminds me of Macduff 1968. Nice fruity and mint in the end.

    Whiskynotes.be:

    Nose: this is a slightly fruitier style, with a more ‘modern’ wood influence. Orchard fruits (green plums, gooseberries, peaches) with light blossomy notes, lime and minty herbs. A subtle grassy note and a generous layer of oak polish.

    Mouth: oily, with a warm fruitiness again (apricots, oranges with peels) and polished oak. Biscuits, acacia honey, some mineral touches. Speyside but with a subtle Highlands element, I’d say. Hints of mocha, herbal teas and resin.

    Finish: long, slightly citrusy, with more of this warming mocha and a drying / waxy note.

    This may be a little more modern than the refill hogshead, but it’s still very impressive. A great balance of fruits, polished oak and waxy / resinous hints.

  7. OJK scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Sour fruits (tart apples, gooseberries) and butternut squash soup with a dollop of cream on the nose. Oily orchard fruits on the palate with vanilla spongecake and some grassy minerals. Eucalyptus candy and peppermint chocolate on the finish.

  10. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I initially was not too fond of the nose, a bit green and restrained, but a week of aeration changed that. Still gentle but far more balanced.
    The palate packs more punch and aromas. Dangerously quaffable to
    • Nose
      Gentle nose. Fruits and wood shavings. Peaches, apricots, apples. Grassy and floral notes. Hints of vanilla and spices.
    • Taste
      Fruity, creamy and spicy. A touch of pepper and oak. Apricots, plums, citrusy notes. Slightly bitter. Honey and hints of vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, lingering fruity sweetness, hints of mentholated notes.
