  1. Seb.Whisky scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Although honeyed, with flavors of apples and especially ripe pears, its style is particularly mineral. This nose is soft and relaxing, toffee, mochatine, but in the subtlety. With a bit of ventilation, it really becomes a very high level.
    • Taste
      The palate is relatively powerful, but easily controlled. There is a more herbaceous side, wild and relatively powerful plants. Opposite this, we always have this style divided between the mineral aspect, chalk and menthol and the desire to go towards something fatter, fruitier, sweeter. I think in that sense it's a very nice version of Glen Elgin, probably more old school. The fruits will take on a very exotic appearance, almost like certain rums, on mango, pineapple, green banana.
    • Finish
      The finish will keep all its roundness, with always a menthol and mineral pastille. Then vegetables again, but which curiously do not drag with them a particularly marked bitterness.
