  1. cnnssr scored this whisky 71 points Member Junior

    The honey malt indeed. Pretty decent, but a little too one-dimensional.
    • Nose
      Honey on toast, honeysuckle, a touch of flowers/heather and a backed apple note.
    • Taste
      Manuka honey, sweet cereal and some caramelized apple.
    • Finish
      Bitter walnuts covered in honey.

    Medium-bodied (might be the result of Dalwhinnie's worm tubs). Not the most complex whisky out there, but I find it a very charming dram and it has a lot of great flavour combinations going for it.
    • Nose
      Very fruity (apples, pears and red dried fruits like berries etc), light toffee, a touch of blackcurrant, vanilla, high-quality strawberry ice cream, some unburnt peat, a light and malty character throughout, slightly nutty mellow oak, hints of butter, a faint touch of pepper, oak spices intermingled with a light sherry note, restrained and light peat smoke, honey-infused cream, some saltiness, flowers (from the mountains?) and lots of strawberry present at all times.
    • Taste
      Honey, cream, a bit of smoke, light and nutty malt, dried fruits (predominantly red), butter, vanilla, minerals, some sherry (quite faint), salt, oak, fresh leather, soft tobacco and strawberries.
    • Finish
      Medium long - ,mellow oak, some clean smoke, vanilla, cream, unburnt peat, a lingering presence of dried fruits towards the end, faint traces of liquorice, minerals, subtle leather, the light and delicate malty character is present from start to finish.

    Needs oxidization in the bottle: gets better after a few weeks. Likes water and time in the glass.. Initially rating 81. After ca. 2 weeks going to 84.
    15 years being the standard expression; it needs the maturation, or better wood? Good price - quality balance.
    • Nose
      Neat - light honey, blossom sweetness, dry fruit, slightly tart.
      w/ warer - heavier sweetness, light oak, fresh fruit.
    • Taste
      Neat - shallow, sweet arrival. Dark development to spicy, warm oily and bitter citrus.
      w/ water - sweet, spicy arrival. Short but warm spicy development to sweet and sour citrus ending.
    • Finish
      Straight from the development ending in citrus.

    Honey, malted barley and citrus.
    Not the most complex whisky ever, but not to be sniffed at. Very tasty, very enjoyable
