  1. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    It's a light, fresh fruit and malt whisky with a green tannin ending. Not bad for a summer dram or a high ball on those hot days.
    • Nose
      Fuji apples and dried leaf litter, honey and lemon zest with a touch of black pepper and sea salt, sharp baking spices (clove and allspice), malt and oak, and a fading note of candied ginger and molasses.
    • Taste
      Malt and toasted oats, a bit of candied ginger, milk chocolate becoming dark chocolate, and cinnamon and dried mixed fruits.
    • Finish
      Chocolate covered espresso beans, green oak tannins, and bitter greens (dandelion leaves).

  2. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      First full heavy fruit and vanilla sweetness, but also grassy notes, herbaceous mint and biscuit.
    • Taste
      Fresh and grassy with fine sparkling oak, mint, biscuits and fragrant hay.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly full and heavy with candied citrus, grass and malt.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I did not expect anything good from this Singleton and was, in a way, even pleasantly surprised - a young and primitive, but well-tailored drinking pier, with a relatively good taste. Something in style, leisure and restraint reminded HP12, and then even some development went in taste and finish, sherry began to look through, so take your time, give it a chance, it's not as sad as Singleton of Duffton.
    • Nose
      Open, calm, raw wood, dust, floral notes, caramel candies with jam, light mineral tones, green grass.
    • Taste
      Wood, varnish, soft peppery wave, candy sweetness,
    • Finish
      Oak, young bark, spices - cinnamon, coriander; light ginger notes, caramel.

    Colour: Gold

    Nose: Quite mild. Very woody, Saw-dust, Nutty, but also cereals and light citrus.

    Taste: Spiciness goes up, but still overall mild. Woody notes still control the palate. A bit of earth and grass are also in the mix.

    Finish: Oaky, fruit lingers. Good length

    Love the bottle

    Well, it is not really an interesting whisky. I miss complexity and depth in this whisky. He seems a bit too artificial about me. It is as if they have mixed many barrels and have blended all the characteristics of the barrels. For me this is the textbook example of mass production. When I look at the marketing campaigns around this whisky, I conclude that they mainly focus on the novice and young whisky drinkers. There is little offense in it but also little character. I find him above all too sweet and too watery. It certainly does not appeal to me.

    • Nose
      A light, fresh and unspoken whisky with notes of nuts (mainly walnuts), artificial honey, sugar, soft oak, marshmallow, vanilla, hint of cinnamon, cereals, hay, wood shavings, toasted bread and citrus.
    • Taste
      A mild, flat and sweet whisky with notes of nuts, oil, citrus, some oak, grass, a hint of butter, chemical sweetness, plastic, biscuit, orange peel, a hint of soft sherry, a little caramel and some vanilla.
    • Finish
      A short slightly drying aftertaste with notes of citrus, pine, some fruit and barley malt.

  8. maltaholic scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    Much good heard, now it is tested. It smells fruity, slightly alcoholic, austere, light Sherry is coming. He tastes remarkably strong for his 40%, he gets some time and air, but he is not really good. Oak almost pure, some grapes, raisins, fruit. Long, burning finish.

  10. Heemhoeve scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Malt whisky with good fruit scent.
    • Nose
      Prima fruit geur.
    • Taste
      Rich in fruit tones, good in combination with chocolate.
    • Finish
      Fine, long enough to enjoy.
