  3. iDea D scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The initial contact of this whisky in the mouth (or the lack of it) is interesting, but disappointing. Not to be expected from a 12yo. Playing around with water and time in the glass does not have much effect. Curious.
    • Nose
      Sweet as in cake. Marsipan. Hints of vanilla, soft herbs, dark fruit.

      With water: more pronounced nose. Spicier.
    • Taste
      Hesitant arrival. Warm development from bitter towards sweet/sour oranges. Metallic tones.

      With water: No arrival; direct into development pf bitter sweet citrusses.
    • Finish
      Dry, medium-long. Metallic.

  4. Abadon05 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Already delicious, but way too uncomplicated, too little character and too mild. Reminds me a little bit of a wine.
    • Nose
      The alcohol is easily noticeable, but no burning. Sweet, grape, raisin, dark fruits, apple. You have to give it time, then it unfolds.
    • Taste
      Slight spiciness in the mouth. Add to that the sweetness and the dark fruits.
    • Finish
      Short finish, which disappears very quickly. No more sweetness, but grapes and pear as well as a certain earthiness (characteristic of Glen Scotia).

  5. MVDW scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Iodine and sea air are scents that first come to mind. Furthermore, it smells quite fresh with some citrus fruit on the back.

    Salty taste, slightly oily in terms of taste, seaweed, little pepper in the aftertaste. The 46% makes it a fine drinkable whisky. No whisky where you always find new flavors, finds it younger than the 12 years. Nevertheless, a great drink whisky for the autumn / winter evening.

  7. emptycask scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Sea salt, oil, grassy, honey, licorice, ripe melon

    Taste: Sea Salty, sweet, old cold coffee, malted barley. A bit of pepper in the development, and some nuts (pistache?)

    Finish:Fruity fresh with melons andĀ pineapple, reasonable of length and rather dry.

    Not an everyday dram, but rewarding if you give it some time.

  8. Archer scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Somewhat unbalanced.
    • Nose
      Straw, rather intrusive daisy note. Some malt and oak.
    • Taste
      The nose continues on the palate. The daisies stay. Add apricots and peaches. Slightly creamy.
    • Finish
      Dry and short. Towards the end, spices show up.
