  1. Luigisim scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose:minerals and lot of fresh green apple

    Mouth: clean, maybe too much clean. Quite lightFinish: again light and not that long

    Comment: not a great edition, maybe too low abv. But the green apples at nose are worth to taste it

    If you have this one, you might want to try it out on a summer night.
    Not so powerful as some of brown CC labels. It didn't disappoint that much, but it is what it is. A bit weak and not very complex, i suggest to try out some other Banff bottlings instead of this one.

    ... a lace part, in which I could get into it. In an elegant way very classic with the smoky-fruity nose and the delicate peat flavors.
    • Nose
      oh yeah .... that can be fruity, smoky, pineapple, but rather the dried, candied, very tender classic peat notes, the oak rounds off nicely here, I can not quite assign an aroma ... somehow juicy, fleshy, malty
    • Taste
      sweet, spicy, juice & power, just wonderfully full, somehow fruity with this beautiful smoke, Toffifee, hazelnuts, biscuit roulade with apricot jam, very light woody
    • Finish
      not as short as you would expect for 40%, warming, spicy, classic, with some ginger biscuits
