  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      82 82
      Fairly expressive nose, lots of vanilla from the barrel, a touch of bourbon (fairly new barrel?) But not too varnished. Spices (cinnamon, pepper), a little pear, malted cereals.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Rough and astringent palate. The whisky is too young and too marked by the barrel. A little too much board and cereal. Traces of spices, green apple. Moderately integrated alcohol. Quite dry.
    • Finish
      80 80
      More balanced, more peppery finish, bitter cocoa. More interesting.

    Blind tasting:
    Nose: freshly filled, light and fresh, citrus fruits, alcohol clearly noticeable, later spicy grain note, cereals,
    Taste: sweet on the tongue at first, peppery start, spicy, sweetness / dryness,
    Finish: bittersweet, light, some citrus, quite short
    Conclusion: unbalanced alcohol not well integrated, I suspect a non-Scottish bottling> 46%, nothing for my palate 66/100

    • Nose

      Floral and an adhesive note
    • Taste
      68 68
      First nutty, then flips to a burning sharpness.
    • Finish

      The sharpness goes and a furry feeling remains.

  8. Krisladdich scored this whisky 72 points Expert Junior

    A very promising onset in the nose where the strong alcoholic notes hardly disturb, but rather convey freshness. In the taste but very alcoholic and hardly fruity sweet. In the finish then a little better.
    • Nose
      In the start peach, orange peel, a light cinnamon note and vanilla. Overall in the nose very fruity and sweet. But always with a very strong alcoholic presence. This gives the whole but a not unpleasant freshness.
    • Taste
      Very spicy, peppery. The fruity sweetness is there, can not prevail against the sharpness. Overall, very "schnapsig".
    • Finish
      It burns on the tongue. After that, it is initially sweet and the end again pretty fruity, the sharpness is only very slowly after. Short to medium.

  9. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    ... no one needs somehow
    • Nose
      a lot of malt, fresh farmhouse bread, green apples, lemon, vanilla, honey, ginger, a hint of dark chocolate; clear strong aromas
    • Taste
      exactly the same: a lot of malt, fresh farmhouse bread, green apples, lemon, vanilla, honey, ginger, plus a lot of dark chocolate, chocolate porridge, a little pear
    • Finish
      very short, spicy, now comes the ginger to the front, the farmer's bread now gets a dark, slightly burnt crust, minimal residual sweetness and a lot of malt ... left behind the taste of stale beer
