    Spritige affair, but warming ... apple and vanilla, thus similar to an apple pie. Bitter, not very noble, but not distracting.

  5. Fight65 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A dram who could not convince me despite his age. Weak body and too sprightly!

  6. molar3rd scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nose: sweet , ginger, cloves honey. Plenty of wood spice. Old wood benches. Apple and pear.

    Palate: enters smoke. Much more than felt in the nose, with hint of peat. Big palate, with the fruit and bitter wood. An alcohol bite, and some cereal and honey liquor.

    Finish : Malt. Bitter coffee and a bit rough. Earthy.

    A bit harsh and bitter, sort of a rough one, which makes it nice but not quite there for me. Not my cuppa.

  7. barryfox915 scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Floral to very floral, oaky and slightly fragrant, with a
    touch of smoke
    Taste: Oaky, floral to very floral, slightly rough, on Ricola
    candies and a good dose of vanilla. Waxy and slightly resinuous. The finish is
    medium, oaky to very oaky, floral, with some violet and a lot of vanilla.
    Diluted, the finish becomes shorter, more waxy, with a twist of
    lemon.
    Impression: A correct whisky, but it seems like the oak are silenced
    the whisky flavours. Too much oak for me.

    Serge
    Glen Garioch 21 yo 1990/2012 (54%, Archives, hogshead, cask #252, 267 bottles) Colour: white wine. Nose: this is different. Starts on a lot of ultra-fresh butter as well as the expected sootiness, then more ashes, grass and many things burning. Pine wood, cardboard, oak, leaves and, maybe, peat. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not smoky whisky as such but, well, it’s pretty toasty. With water: more lemon juice this time, tart apple juice, dry white wine (we had riesling, we had sauvignon, so how about dry chenin this time? ;-)) Mouth (neat): I like this kind of acridness, involving many green apples and lemons as well as fresh walnuts and a feeling of spritzer. Sharp like a blade, as they say… With water: some ham now, that’s funny. And mint, eucalyptus… It really got wider. Finish: long, probably not as clean as some others because of these notes of ham or bacon (something slightly burnt), but it’s also rather more complex – although it’s no complex whisky as such. Smoky/ashy aftertaste. Comments: on par with the OB, I’d say, although very different. Or very pleasantly chaotic. SGP:463 - 86 points.

  9. ThS scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A fairly linear whisky, whose texture is greedy but quite poor in terms of aromas, and which suffers from this little bitterness that takes precedence over an all too erased.
    • Nose
      Sweet, round, sweet on milk chocolate especially, with a well integrated woody bitterness background. Some milk caramel and ground almonds. Toasted wood.
    • Taste
      Sweet round, sweet. True to the nose, but the bitterness of the wood (green wood, green tea) is accentuated rather unpleasantly in the long run.
    • Finish
      Sweet round, sweet on coffee with milk. Leave a hint of bitterness (licorice stick, green tea).

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Sample from Whiskybase.
    • Nose
      Toffee, almond, vanilla, malt, honey, lime, tea, salt and a vegetal touch. With water some smoke comes loose.
    • Taste
      Caramel, salty ketjap sauce, cooked vegetables, tea and spices.
    • Finish
      Caramel, spice, broth and autumn leaves.
