  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Youngish, sweet, malty, salty, and slightly peated/smoky. Like a hornet's nest, sharp and on fire. Super oily and thick, with a consistency of olive oil.

    Overall, a very well-balanced dram. The flavor profile complements one another.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweetish and malty lemon tarts, raw honey, chamomile, ash.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Hit you in the face kind of sensation, powerful and explosive. Grassy, vegetative and raw. Reminds me of younger Convalmore, the 16 years JM. Not much complexity to be honest. It's really delicious but the inactive cask makes this whisky not ready yet. At 26 years and 61.4%, there is much more that could've been done for this. Super oily, thick, and viscous.

      Long bittersweet mangoes, salted, peppery, lemon meringue with a drizzle of cinnamon.

    • Nose
      Sweetish, caramel, wood, beeswax, flowers, vanilla, hay.
    • Taste
      Quite powerful, grass, fruity sweetness, malt, caramel, vanilla, oak.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, butter, a bit of oak. Water makes it a bit drier, but does not actually improve it.

  6. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's very good and balanced. Not so complex.

      Very bourbon nose.
      A lot of wood. A little violet.
      Caramel. Citrus (lemon)

      Very slight exoticism. White flower.

      In the mouth it's sweet. Yellow and white fruits.
