  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    26 years and not a bit woody, but not young.
    • Nose
      Camomile tea! I never had in a whisky. But the full dose. But only if you do not smell directly but a little above the glass. It gets very fruity (yellow fruits) but stays in the herbaceous corner for a while. with a little water and after a little Zet the nose becomes more and more fruity.
    • Taste
      Puff, wow is the intense. Sweet, fruity, vanilla, harmonious, powerful but also mild. Great
    • Finish
      This sweetie, which I can not divide so easily, remains a very long time. The whisky is almost not dry.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I am generally not a Lowlands fan, but this is great stuff.
    • Nose
      Incredibly full and fruity. Mango, peach, honey, raspberry, tangerine, currant, pear and citrus. Next to the huge fruitiness also some dried grass, mint and limestone.
    • Taste
      Peach, honey, pear, vanilla, lemon, heather, fig, floral notes and subtle spice.
    • Finish
      Peach, vanilla and hay.

    Grand, fruity, candied Lowlander.
    • Nose
      Oh, what a grand nose! All kinds of fruits, mandarin in the lead,
      closely followed by caramelized lime. Mango pipes up immediately and soon takes
      rushes ahead. Some hints of smoke and menthol, dried flowers and leaves.
      Candlewax. Complex nose!
    • Taste
      It remains a little fruit bomb on the palate, but also offers a
      sweetness of candy as well. Wine gums, but also hard candy, the ones you can
      suck on for minutes on end. Honey and citrus. Vanilla. Pears and peaches take
      over. Spicy, by the way. This is very good stuff indeed!
    • Finish
      The finish is long, spicy and remains fruity until the very end.

    • Nose

    • Taste
      sweet-fruity, pepper, ginger, tobacco
    • Finish
      powerfull, peppery and long
