  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very special part, you have to forgive him for his mistakes and then enjoy the ingenious fruit aroma, rarely had such a clear fruit bomb with fresh fruits.
    • Nose
      Fermented, sour, alcoholic notes, gets better with time, unfortunately also some craft glue, then a lot of apple and peach, blossom honey, orchard
    • Taste
      Pointed and strong, full orchard bomb, apple, green and red, pear, grapefruit, melon, mirabelle plum, a lot of fruit dumplings but also honey, rock sugar, anise, ginger, toffee, camphor, fennel, soda, pineapple
    • Finish
      Crass apple goes on, pear, grass, toffee, pulp, long

    I liked this a lot less than the average here, but I can’t say how long the bottle has been open for.
    • Nose
      78 78
      Very sour, very lactic. Butyric acid, fermentation room, wort. White wine vinegar, sour apples.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Tin, lime spritzer, artificial citrus. It’s thin, a little sour and white wine like (Sauvignon blanc)
    • Finish
      80 80
      Metallic, tin soup can, very clean, tart, crisp. White wine and Curtis spritzer.

    "It's a delicious, elegant, very satisfying, complex, understated whisky."

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Body; smooth. Cinder toffee. Very nice. Very drinkable.
    • Nose
      Softy sweet lemon grass. Hint of fragrant smoke. Marshmallow.
    • Taste
      Toffeeish. Textured. Full of flavour. Clotted cream. Dessert apples. Sweet without being cloying. Delicious.
    • Finish
      Lemony. Rounded. Lightest  touch of peat.

    This one burns, not shines.

    It needs water.
