  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A dram more intellectual than sexy.
    Rather complex, but not particularly in the right direction.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Quite powerful nose, but at the same time quite timid and austere.
      Lemon, zest, fresh cut grass, pear, light melon, wood, vanilla, cloves, pepper, anise.
      Light orange and potpourri.
      Unfortunately, not much is happening and you have to insist on finding the different aromas.
    • Taste
      86 86
      On the palate, it is oily.
      Citrus fruits: lemon, orange, tangerine. Sweets.
      Wood: liquorice, cocoa, pepper, vanilla, chemical caramel, liquorice. Toasted almonds. Pot pourri.
      Light embers.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish on lemon candy, toasted almond, eucalyptus, cold ash, potpourri.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is not the type of whisky I'm usually into, but I do appreciate it.
    • Nose
      Citrus, pear, grass, vanilla, oak, tangerines. The nose doesn't show off the ABV.
    • Taste
      Citrus, pear, grass, marzipan, butter, unripe banana, vanilla and a spicy oakiness. Plenty of punch due to the cask strength. Water (which it doesn't really need) brings out a bit of limestone.
    • Finish
      Citrus, vanilla, hay, marzipan and limestone. Quite dry, but long enough.

  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nice St Magdalene. Thanks, Arnout, for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose is surprisingly soft on mostly citrus. Lemon, lime and a bit of
      mandarin. A lot of grass and hints of white fruit. A trace of smoke from the
      oak. Vanilla slowly but surely breaks through.
    • Taste
      On the palate, this St Magdalene is a lot more aggressive. Pretty spicy
      as well, with white pepper and liquorice. The grass becomes hay, the citrus
      remains but becomes a tad zesty. Nice.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly long and turns the mouth completely dry.
