  1. wekke did not rate this whisky Expert Senior



    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt



    Nose: Stewing granny smith apples, with tangerine peel and golden syrup.
    Palate: The palate is filled with apples and soft pears covered in chocolate sauce.
    Finish: The finish is clean with notes of coconut and poached pears.
    Overall:
    Not dissimilar to the standard twelve year old but the aroma is richer
    and it has more weight on the palate. A fun alternative, get it while it
    lasts!

  5. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A big improvement on the standard 12 year old, with more depth and balance. A very enjoyable dram, and not simply a marketing gimmick (as I had feared).

  6. sinclair scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Distilled spelt "distillled"on bottle label on the one i got from duty free.

  7. Colin Hampden-White did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    The number of bottles is only 35,000 NOT 350,000. I`m not sure how to change this.
