  1. Totoro scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Insanely priced for a no-name distillery, but really excellent quality regardless.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Creamy and fruity, a marriage made in bourbon-cask heaven.
    • Taste
      89 89
      A bit more spice on the palate than would be ideal, but otherwise continuing the trajectory of the glorious nose.
    • Finish
      90 90
      A fruity-peachy afterglow, reminiscent of Ben Nevis or older Irish whiskies.

  3. L_Gillian scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Small sample. Clean and juicy fruits with some interesting underlying waxy and industrial notes.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Camphor and peaches. Waxed canvas, ripe pear, grapefruit and some lemon zest, sweet cookie dough, a fresh and dewy meadow. Subtle notes of metallic motor oil.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Gentle and clean with juicy soft fruits, soft waxes provide texture, there's some oranges and a generous amount of honey. Gets more earthy when chewing.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Clean, creamy fruits. Medium in length. Apricot jam, some dates and a pleasant bitter zing. Waxiness sticks around the mouth and some camphor-y notes linger alongside soft fruits.

    C: Speyside Distillery, really? Ben Nevis meets Clynelish, more like. Regardless, this is simply delicious juice bottled in good time.
