  1. spigray scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    n: lemons, lemon tart, cereals, a hint of honey,  a few flowers, a little vanilla and
        just a whiff of oak. a little hay and hints of blue poppy.
        an elegant nose,  very fresh and very nice.
    t:  quite strong and a little sharp without water although the mouthfeel is rather
       smooth. the lemons are a bit sweeter than they were on the nose, the oak is
       more spicy here.  with a faint nuttiness and a little vanilla. something floral.
    f: medium to long, still on fresh lemons,very clean.

    89/100

    • Nose
      Vanilla, honey, lemons, oaky
    • Taste
      Oily, fruity (apples, pears, apricots), spicy (ginger, peppery), honey, caramel
    • Finish
      Rather short, fruity, spicy

  6. Rom scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Too much alcohol at first nose. Honey, antique store, the dilution makes up fruit (apple, peach, apricot) and a lot of wax. Mouth very powerful, very sweet with a little lemon, medium on fruits, wax and vegetable. The texture hangs, slightly dusty. Short final. Swim very well, do not hesitate. Typical profile of a lowlander: fruity, a little green and evanescent. This one has character but for the price it is not my profile.

  8. Banzai scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Topper. Reasonably complex whisky. Not for beginners.
    • Nose
      Stinging. Citrus on the nose, lime zest and blood orange more specifically. Then some spicy and a touch of mint. Which is also minerally and hints of new spirit. Then some sweets (honey).
    • Taste
      Pfoe, that comes in firmly. Pretty powerful. The citrus is less present but there is more spiciness (mint, pepper, liquorice). The clean, subtle smoke ensures a good balance. There is also something floral in the background as well as some chocolate. Man, this is nice stuff.
    • Finish
      medium long aftertaste which is somewhat drying with notes of licorice and a fading smoke.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    HWF VBT-5 sample 4. 

    Except the straw and malt in the nose, I didn't discover many typical Lowlands characteristics in this sample.
    • Nose
      A lot of fruit: Apricot jelly (cake filling) pear, fig, apple and pineapple. Whiffs of mint, vanilla and a little caramel from a good bourbon cask. Initially a slight whiff of ammonia, but when that's gone it's replaced by honey, marzipan and even a little beeswax. Eventually also a little malt sugar, hay and smoked ham. Complex nose!
    • Taste
      Apricot, pear, fig, vanilla, honey, caramel and spicy oak. Quite strong despite the fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, peach, rhubarb and a little spice.

  10. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    HWF VBT-5 sample 4 tasted with Aby
    • Nose
      a bit sharp, plums, bees wax, some peat, leather, fudge, citrus - lemon and smoked ham
    • Taste
      wax, honey and a lot of citrus - lemon
    • Finish
      spices and citrus - lemon
