  1. vlad78 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    An excellent whisky that retains both yellow fruit and velvety tones, apple jelly, plum jam and creamy texture.

  3. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose promised much more...
    • Nose
      89 89
      Rich, dried fruits in salt, lots of smoked plums and raisins, buckwheat honey, nuts and raw leather
    • Taste
      88 88
      Citruses with salt, a drop of oil, green olives, unripe persimmons
    • Finish
      87 87
      Lemon zest, woods and wine notes

    22/21/21/21
    For 23 years, somehow sharply and spiritually, although the nose is not bad.

  5. Simon Stood scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Delicate floral nose, creamy, light perfumery 22.5
    Taste is a logical continuation of the aroma. Sweet violets, yellow fruits. 23
    Soft, long-lasting aftertaste, dried candied mint 22.5
    Balance 22.5
    Lightweight but rich at the same time. Can be called summer
