  3. MaroFF scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    For a price of less than 50 €, we get medium-quality whisky, which should cost just that. Unfortunately, it is far from this year's 8 YO Port Cask, or 8 YO Sherry Cask, and even less can not compare with, for me, this year's best discovery of Heavily Peated Batch 6.
    Nevertheless, I consider her to be a very decent "average"
    • Nose
      84 84
      fresh, sweet, grassy, fruity, apples, raisins, lemon peel, shortbread cookies, oak
    • Taste
      84 84
      semi-sweet, peppery, oak, delicate peat, red berries, undergrowth, gently floral end
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium long, slightly bitter fish oil, a bit of citrus and salty smoke

  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Again a very well made whisky. It would be best described as the annual 12yo Springbank CS, but then a tad tamed down.
    Old-school sherried whisky.

      Sweet sherry notes come up first. Behind there there is some must and wet damp forest. It is as if there is a bit like a fungi note in here.
      I would describe this as an old-school sherried whisky nose!
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweet and sour, some smoke. This is quite as peated as a Springbank. A bit dirty in a muddy/autumn forest. Decent old-school whisky!
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long length. Some sherry notes, dried leather and wet tobacco. A little sour in the end.
