  1. Totoro scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    An idiosyncratic one. Extremely leafy, vegetal, and mineralic, with soft exotic "white" fruitiness. Glad to have tried it, but I wouldn't go for a whole bottle.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Salad greens, celery, spinach, dried grasses and herbs, hay, chalk, parched oak. The fruits only show once you've taken the first sip.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Soft is understating it. Feels like the mildest 43% I've tasted yet. Interestingly and unexpectedly fruity though, with the pulp of pears, pineapples and guavas. Very softly drying, with a nicely mineralic feel at the end.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Mildly astringent, with a sprinkling of white pepper, sweet exotic fruit pulp (see above) and limestone.

    Color: yellow gold

    I have no idea how the sulfur gets in the nose, quite penetrative. Basic malt whisky with a little old style that I would like to try with more age.
    • Nose
      Smells young at first, musty, no sherry and still sulphurous, asparagus pee, unripe plums, actually a little malt in the background. Burning matches and dry wood chips. After the first sip of dark, malty, a few pickled plums, block malt. Boiled apples, vanilla sauce.
    • Taste
      For 43% surprisingly oily, butter, malt beer, for 14 years a good pile of old oak. Nutmeg, orange peel, green apples.
    • Finish
      Rather short, clearly bitter. Grassy, straw, shoe polish.

    sample.

    It seems this one came from a rather dark batch. Very nice actually.
    • Nose
      Rather resinous, peppery and spicy. Fruity hints here and there but this is more on the savoury side. Slightly herbal and there is a hint of sulphur in there, but it is so faint it can be ignored.
    • Taste
      Savoury arrival, this time the sulphur is a bit more prominent in the form of match sticks. Again spicy, some honey in between and overripe apples. Tiny bit harsh, and maybe a bit thin, but it is not all that bad. A certain dry freshness kicks in after a while.
    • Finish
      Medium long on overripe apples, caramel and some honey. Nice sirupy, kinda coffe-ish after taste.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite a mole, very clean, transparent, very good depth and saturation for its age, the fortress is also no complaints, for 43% - very worthy, in general - woody-grassy, ​​dry.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, processed board, wood shavings, wood dust, herbal notes, light honey-floral tones, propolis, sandpaper, some fresh vegetables.
    • Taste
      Sweet-woody, a little lemon pepper, lemon zest, creamy notes, herbs and honey, slightly astringent oak.
    • Finish
      Light, airy, slightly tart oak, light plastic bitterness, herbs, weak lemon tints, lemon pepper.

  7. vojt466 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    An unobtrusive drink that takes time to develop to show off its fruit-vanilla qualities and, unfortunately, a bitter orange peel. It's not the worst, but not the bomb

      re-review:
      taste changes from time to time, at the moment I´m more into bourbon matured stuff, so let´s see, if I will change my mind. had it 86 last time I reviewed it.
      slightly grassy and floral with a substantial oaky back bone. also a malty component, let´s say croissants. thereś also a mineral, slightly coastal smell.
    • Taste
      very round and pleasing on the palate, good balance with malt, vanilla, grass, breakfast cereals.
      first slightly sweet but drying very quickly.
    • Finish
      medium to long, a bit flat now

    10.05.2017
    • Nose
      Sofort kommen Heidekraut und Ginster zum Vorschein, dicht gefolgt von Honig und etwas Vanille
    • Taste
      weich, leicht ölig und frisch; Noten von Kräutern und Nadelholz sowie Harz; insgesamt floral
    • Finish
      lang, wärmend und leicht alkoholisch; wiederholt die Kräuternoten, floraler Charakter kommt stärker zum Vorschein
