    Nose is actually very good. A good drink-away whisky.
    • Nose
      Peach and apricot. Herbal notes and a little sournness. Sweet barley and vanilla. Some rich oak.
    • Taste
      Quite thick and waxy. Honey and vanilla again. Metalic notes. Some peat?
    • Finish
      Becomes bitter. Slightly peppery. Some wood.

    Tip: - Speyside
    - 18 to 20 years
    - 40% to 43%
    - Sherry finish
    • Nose
      full pound of caramel, slightly sweet but more acid, grapes, sherry, an idea of ​​dusty loft, ashes, foliage
    • Taste
      Sherry, grain, woody-sweet, but also quite thin
    • Finish
      again more wood, even something in the direction of fir, quite heavy, medium long but good reheating

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Smells the way whisky should smell, sometimes quite stereotypically. Malt, fruit, some sherry, nuts and oak. Everything is there. Even in the mouth fits everything, without that imposes itself, the 40% push surprisingly strong.
    In the finish everything is as expected. A touch of rubber surprised. Sweet, malty, a little sherry, not too light. Just a good solid whisky.

  8. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a lot more fruity and pleasing than the Miltonduff 10yo (WID: 32090). Also pretty nice to drink. You can not complain about the money. But I will not buy a bottle.
    • Nose
      Honey. Vanilla. Peach and apricot. Sourish white grapes. Also some tropical fruits. Freshly cut grass.
    • Taste
      Fruit muesli with kaba or ovaltine in milk. Tangerine. Quittengelee. Vanilla Semolina pudding.
    • Finish
      Orange peel. Cocoa. Oak.

  9. CaskHead scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Slightly diluted 10-year bottling without highlight. But not a bad whisky. I would like to know how he would make himself in cask strength? There would be more in there ... 82/100 points
    • Nose
      light vanilla, some wood, some malt, light sweetness, "wheat field in midsummer" (OdinNord) it's quite good, light citrus notes, looks a bit young at first
    • Taste
      Vanilla, oak (increasingly), rather light (summer whisky), a bit thin
    • Finish
      some oak and very light vanilla.

  10. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Yeah, you can drink quite well, but it's nothing special, bothers me the bitterness and badly incorporated alcohol something.
    • Nose
      lots of lemon, lots of vanilla, some coconut, some banana, some honey, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated
    • Taste
      watery, sweetish, lots of lemon, a lot of vanilla, some honey, some pear, some banana, some malt, some shortbread, slightly bitter, alcohol is not particularly well integrated
    • Finish
      short, a little dark chocolate, light sweetness, slightly bitter
