  1. CowboyTzf scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    this bottle opened a half year earlier, now it's good

  2. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very dominant and pleasing dark fruit at the beginning, then increasing complexity with more tannins. A little weaker on the palate but again with a great finish. Overall a pretty good whisky

  4. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It's very, very special, has its very own acidity and range of flavors, I think it's awesome, reminds me of a perfectly balanced drink with elderflower and exotic fruits.
    • Nose
      Very interesting gummy bear note as I know and like it from North Port, elderflower liqueur, violet liqueur, mango liqueur, ergo everything sweetened in honey, papaya and candied ginger, young quince, passion fruit and cardamom, basil
    • Taste
      Like the nose, very interesting, special taste and approach, tart fresh quince and sage, basil, eucalyptus and young plums, some papaya and passion fruit, elderflower and floral notes, with ginger, fresh and candied, net melon and light honey and malt
    • Finish
      Lavender suddenly appears, in honey, malt, passion fruit, quince, ginger, long, nice and fruity-fresh and a bit dry

  5. sagara-kun scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose is quite shy, but on the palate, we are on a rather pleasant Lochside.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Delicate but quite powerful nose, on honey, white flower, elderflower, white pepper.
      A little lemon candy.
      The nose doesn't tell much, but no wrong note.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the mouth it is sweet.
      Candied lemon candy, light hay, white pepper.
      Light basil, aromatic herbs.
      Clove, honey.
      Light chalk.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long and pleasant finish on slightly salted candied lemon, white pepper, and a very light peat.

    this isnâ€
    • Nose
      amazingly sweet, nosing this for the first time: Bubblicious (cherry gum) with a certain pesto aroma hanging around it.
    • Taste
      a grim mouthfeel and a sourish taste in the mouth. Balsamico and pesto is the best I can make of this.
    • Finish
      a short and greasy finish.
