  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A summer dram, the barrel has had little influence over the 32 years. Nevertheless a very compact, matured malt. Although very light and rather uncomplicated. I still like it because of the freshness.
    • Nose
      Light and fruity, lemon, cloves, over time some fresh oak notes, some mint. With Waasser, the citrusy side gets even stronger.
    • Taste
      Very sweet at first start, then many spices, oak, a small explosion in the mouth. With water, the whisky is a little sweeter.
    • Finish
      In the finish lemon cake, cloves, a few tart oak notes, but more on fresh, light and summery.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nose is really weird, palate is hot and spicy. Quirky.
    • Nose
      Lots of herbal notes; cinnamon, cloves. Also flowers of jasmine and violets. Soja sauce. Penciil shavings. Very strange, but fun.
    • Taste
      Very spicy and astringent; peppers, nutmeg and ginger, Paprika. Citrus fruit of lemon and lime. Orange peel. A bit spirity
    • Finish
      Long. Dry. Very bitter and salty later on. Liquorice.
