  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Certainly not the same dram, but similar to the first Paul Launois release.
    • Nose
      Prickly, somewhat fizzy almost with a touch of resin and vanilla. Subtle yeasty touches, warm custard and wet pebbles, but also a whiff of limoncello, almonds and candied bananas. Water brings out a touch of mint and honeyed apples.
    • Taste
      Same envying mouthfeel, but also a similar hot, spicy arrival. I'm sure the French oak has something to do with it. Water slightly settles things, making room for banana, honey and sweet fruits.
    • Finish
      Somewhat oaky and bitter with soft fruits. Long.

  4. fluffybunny scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Tropical, vanilla, citrus/lemon (not tart), white grapes. White pepper, water tames a bit but doesn’t remove the bitter youthful bite aftertaste. Good flavors up until that point. 82 at first, ending at 78/100.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Brutal, but complex nose, omg. New plastic table cloth (dunno in English), baked maroon, almond, then salami and baked meat. After some airing and resting it brings burnt sugar, gauze bandage.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smooth, silky and complex. Honey, champagne, toast, rum & coffee cake. Craving for another sip.

  9. DramALife scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at an Adelphi event. Champaign cask finish. Unpeated.

    8/10 - I'll gladly welcome another dram.

    Notes
    Interesting enough, fuzzy minerals on the palate. Very fruity. A touch Strawy. Quite young. With O2 there's more Barley sugar.

  10. Daan2 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful complex whisky with sweet tropical fruit and wood. The alcohol is clearly present. very pricey

  14. Tomatin1980 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Interestingly enough, this second batch does not satisfy me as much as the first one, which I thought was totally stellar. This one feels rather creamy on the tongue, and lacks some freshness, even with the adding of some water. A drop or two does calm it down and then some typical Ardnamurchan minerals come up, which makes it reminiscent of good Springbank and Ben Nevis. Still a solid dram.
