  5. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Molt is simple, but very pleasant, drinkable, quite rich and dense for its years - a soft oak speaker, something in the spirit of Stratale.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, processed wood, dried fruit, herbaceous shades - dried grass, hay; dried apples and pears, dried leaves in herbarium, tablets in a shell.
    • Taste
      Saturated, sweet-woody, light bitterness of the bark and herbs, light peppercorn, weak oiliness.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, tart oak, creamy sweetness, light fruit sour, dried crust of orange.

  6. ctu scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Slightly thin and oaky, but easy to drink.
    • Nose
      Waxy fruits, citruses, spicy oak, vanilla and honey.
    • Taste
      Spicy. Fruits and vanilla. Pepper, cinnamon and grass.
    • Finish
      Medium length, dry, creamy, spicy, oaky.

  7. Hemdl scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant nose, the rest drops significantly.
    • Nose
      Young, floral, minimal oak. A few bright fruits, a bit of honey and vanilla. Not really exotic, but pleasant.
    • Taste
      Soft and mild, creamy mouthfeel. Something spicy oak, from the pleasantly sweet honey, vanilla and fruit flavors from the nose is unfortunately only a slight copy. All in all a bit weak, as if all the aromas had already been "used up" after the nose. Pity
    • Finish
      Rather entertaining and a bit thin. Slightly dry and with a tendency to bitterness, then gone already.

  8. domani scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    A pleasantly fresh and soft whisky with alternating acidity and sweetness of citrus fruits. The nose is confirmed in taste - 06.12.2017
    • Nose
      Subtle sweetness, soft, fruity, exotic, carambola, earthy notes, oak, spicy
    • Taste
      Soft and mild, malt, fruit acidity that is replaced by fruit sweetness, citrus, pear, black pepper, slightly dry, slightly spicy with some bitterness from the oak
    • Finish
      medium

  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Pretty good stuff. It shows Strathmill´s competence of delivering some fresh, crisp fruity spirit that makes it wanted in blends. But on it´s own, it´s worth a try too.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, juicy and fruity. Gooseberries, pear, rhubarb, Later, the fruit gets a tad rounder, with apples and fresh plums. Then, a nice dose of malt and grass pop up too. The oak gives a soft layer of vanilla, and cinnamon. 
    • Taste
      Nice texture, not too thin, with a little kick of spice. It´s still on the juicy, fruity side. Next to that, there is baked bread and pastry, vanilla, mint and still that nice note of cinnamon. As said, some pepper kicks in.
    • Finish
      Rather short, fading, and a bit on the dry side. The fruit has left for the oak to pronunciate. It does this with some butter cream, but especially with ginger and pepper.

    From the beginning, fruity and delicate, later drying out, adding spiciness and, unfortunately, bitterness. A hopeful beginning, a hopeless end ..
