  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    In every respect really soooo much better than the standard 12yo, a delicious and refreshingly fruity-spicy dram!

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blindtasting:

    Feels like an exBC around the age of 20 with around 50% - not outstanding - but delicious, solid, friendly sympathetic and unadorned
    • Nose
      87 87
      summery fresh and fruity - superficially delicious lemon, biscuits with vanilla, sweet lime blossom, lemon balm, in the background more orange, mandarin, peach, mineral
    • Taste
      85 85
      crystalline lemon, some stone powder, mint, lemon drops, yeast dough, light tingling like carbon dioxide, nougat, liquorice
    • Finish
      86 86
      Licorice, tree sap, resin, pepper, ginger, sweet herbal tea with thyme - medium length

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    All at once fresh and warm with lots of caramel. Malt, vanilla honey. On the palate, supple, light, spicy with herbs when swallowed. The finish is delicate, very short, at least it is believed because, long after, we realize that some discrete but very present fruits have persisted all this time. I did not understand the name Flotilla: I did not feel the slightest maritime influence in it. But it does not spoil anything!
    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Interesting whisky, but nothing extraordinary is not.
    • Nose
      An interesting scent of the coast mixed with spiciness. They also feel some citrus, floral tones and malt.
    • Taste
      Spicy full flavor with woody motifs and dried dark fruit, dates and salty. Gradually transforms into smooth buttery sweetness.
    • Finish
      Dozuk is medium-long. Again, there is a woody spiciness with a taste of chocolate biscuits and finally nuts.

  13. stf_92 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    At the first tasting I found it very disappointing. A young and very fiery whisky. It went a little in all directions.
    After aeration I definitely preferred it. Always a little crazy. Very marine and very fresh. He had given 84/100. I have to come back to see if he does not deserve one or two more points. An original whisky for me.
