  1. El Bastardo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    A rock-solid whisky for intermediate drinkers and an excellent choice for beginners until one or the other newbie might raise the bar.
    • Nose
      60 60
      Quite fruity, I would say above average. A very light smoke can be found, but only relatively at the beginning. It flies quickly. Despite the age, a sweet and fresh meadow and other bright fruits. If you give it a little time, the age comes to the fore.
    • Taste
      60 60
      More on the sweet side, but this is partly offset by the weight and flavor.
    • Finish
      60 60
      Remains for a long time and is pleasantly clumsy down the throat.

  4. g00se did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Not bad.
    But also somehow meaningless.
    I didn't find any rough edges or the fine Whinnie Peat.

  7. Brann scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Subtle and gently flowery.
    • Taste
      Just flowering along. Not getting any spesifics from this one.
    • Finish
      Dry with some tannins.

  8. Edwin de Lange scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Full balanced malt, rich and fruity.

    Superb consistency.

  9. The Macallan scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A treat for the tongue, very nice as an after-dinner dram. A must have in any collection.
    • Nose
      Gentle, honey, slightly malty, flowery (heather) and some wood.
    • Taste
      Heather honey sweetness laced with some wood, traces of peat and a hint of white pepper.
    • Finish
      Soft, long and slightly spicy are the ingredients for this finish.
