  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Pretty nice to have a drink in between. But absolutely nothing special. The nose pleases with its fruitiness, but overall could tolerate more complexity. The alcohol is not optimally involved.
    • Nose
      sweet, orange, later malty and lemon balm
    • Taste
      sweet again with lemon balm, some cloves, relatively aggressive alcohol,
    • Finish
      medium length finish with some oak and spice

    Nose and taste are ok. One of the weakest finishes I came across. It is gone within a second.

  7. SweetPeat scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Works more mature and a little bitterer than the 12er. Beautifully balanced with sweet and tart notes. Thanks 43% strong enough and for formerly under 40 € priced very fair, unfortunately taken from the market.
    • Nose
      85 85
      sweet sherry, caramel, vanilla, honey, clear oak, coffee, chocolate
    • Taste
      85 85
      Intense, rather dry, sherry, raisins, plums, sweet citrus, honey, vanilla, spicy oak, espresso, heather
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long (7/10) and spicy with dark fruits and oak

  8. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like it very well, very harmonious, everything in the right place, the age is noticeable.
    • Nose
      A great, "typical" whisky nose. Sweet, yellow fruit, a little brandy bean, light sherry, a slightly musty, mushy note (not so bad), plus a nice portion of wood, also some black bread. Spicy and complex.
    • Taste
      surprisingly strong, malty, here are some orange notes, surprisingly tart, oak, but a few fruity accents in the background.
    • Finish
      Oak, orange, some malt, bittersweet, pleasant, old-tasting, rather short.

  10. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    84 points.
    • Nose
      Slightly alcoholic touch at the beginning, then floral, orange blossom, leaf clementine, parsley, caramel, sultanas, bouillon cubes, maggi, light citrusy spiciness.
    • Taste
      Sweet at the beginning, then becomes sour-zesty, finally a full-bodied umami seasoning, which literally makes your mouth water. Cinematically speaking: A pull-swing from bourbon to sherry cask. That's fun!
    • Finish
      Juicy sweetness. Echoes of oak and "fleshy" sherry disappear last. Medium.
