  1. DocF scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Color: Amber

    Tasty, tasty filling, the nose stands out clearly, as usual a pity that he has not allowed him 43%.
    • Nose
      Pils, unripe apples, hay, earthier with time, floral, acacia blossom, violets, dry soil, far away soot. Mash, cheesecake. Fine sherry influence. Acts to this point appealing, it is critical with the 40% in the mouth. Second sip: sooty, beeswax, fresh sawn branches. Acacia honey.
    • Taste
      Block malt, humus, undergrowth. Ordinary volume for 40%. Tree sap, polished oak, candle soot, fallen fruit. Black coffee, Bailey's, subtle tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium long, resinous, some soot, preserved plums. Wet corrugated cardboard towards the end.

  2. maltaholic scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Overall, not bad.
    • Nose
      The nose is fresh, rather fruity, cereals.
    • Taste
      Soft, creamy, no smoke, honey notes.
    • Finish
      In the finish a little spicier, not very long.

  5. Georges scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Soft, flowery, some peat smoke, honey, vanilla, caramel, raisins, mint
    • Taste
      Flowery, honey, vanilla, caramel, oranges, peat smoke, seasalt
    • Finish
      Medium long, oaky, salty

  6. Feusi scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Sherry and peat in a spicy mixture. Somehow fits the honey-like sweetness, rather not with such bitter and peaty notes. A rather disappointing Duty Free version.
