  1. 55606882 scored this whisky 93 points Member Senior

    WAX,fresh,fruity

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: rather delicate, quite fresh, on the pear from a distance, then other fruits when approaching. It's sweet, it's flowery (a bit like a rye), granary. In the mouth, fruits, cereals again. Sweet spices but biting. Discreet woody note. Combine sweetness and presence. Sweet final too, not very intense, but rather long, with a slightly bitter and grassy aftertaste but inevitably very pleasant. The overall impression is very good! Thanks to Vincent (Du Malt Au Palais)!
    Enthusiasm 4/5

  3. EarlMobile scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Nice fruity whisky. The finish does the oban well, making the DE a lot more interesting / better than the standard edition. Still not a very complex whisky, of course, but nice to drink.

  4. pianoman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Restrained. Rosé wine, old cellar, fog, damp soil.
    • Taste
      Interesting profile. Fruity, spicy, dry. Orange with ginger. Nutty bitterness.

  5. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The montilla cask adds some interesting flavours to a really good basic whisky.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    Blind tasting of a sample.

    For its low ABV I find this whisky really corrosive in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Malt sugar, pear, honey, lime, orange, caramel and straw.
    • Taste
      An unexpected amount of spice upfront: White pepper and clove. Then caramel,
      vanilla, malt, orange and a little chocolate. Getting creamier after a few
      minutes to better balance the spice.
    • Finish
      Caramel, spice and a whiff of smoke.
