      Oh, there we have a locked little boy in the glass
      Take your time, please
      Hard to elicit something from him, slight burning smell, some wood,
      He shows ripe redcurrants, a little pear, and sweet candy.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Light soap in the mouth right at the beginning, then mushy pear, again something burnt
      Wood, slightly bitter in the back
    • Finish
      78 78
      He stays a bit longer than the Souvereign, but it is not pleasant

    Conclusion: a ripe ExBourbon whisky. I like it well without excitement and here too the PLV fits.
    • Nose
      On the nose vanilla, bright ripe fruit, light wood notes, oak shavings, floral, fragrant.
    • Taste
      Mouth: surprisingly restless. A bit spicy, but then beautiful full aroma, honey, oak also neat bitterness and some yoghurt, as in Souvereign.
    • Finish
      Finish: oak, cocoa, vanilla, some fruit, honey, mint and a bit sourish wood.

    A cereal malt if I‘ve ever had one. Grains, oatmeal, dusty wheat. Malty as all hell, but rather un-fruity. Good if that’s your thing. Comes across a bit younger than its stated age.

    Aroma: sweet apples, honey, apple peel, salted milk caramel, freshly cut grass, dry, damp autumn leaves, damp earth, dry sawdust, a little minerality and salt. Although the aroma contains sweet derivatives, it is absolutely not sweet and strict.

    Taste: honey-grassy, caramel, apple peel and bones, baked apple, herbal extract, bitter rind, walnut.

    Finish: caramel, grassy, apple juice, nuts, slightly shorter than average, very delicate.

    Rating: 84-85

    The result: the aroma is the strongest side in this whisky, very multi-layered and interesting, the taste is slightly poorer, but also good, but I would like to finish more brightly, but what is that is ... In general, very pleasant is no longer youthful, but not yet age whisky, probably like those who love the strict without Speysidovskogo sweet whisky.

  7. Lorion scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. It screams for "daily dram"!
    • Nose
      Vanilla, subtle wood, some mandarin. A lot of vanilla. Soft and creamy.
    • Taste
      Oak. Vanilla. The Nachschmecken is always sweeter.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet.

    Quite a disappointment. Nothing worth mentioning, really. On par or worse than a Highland Park 12-yo.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Malty, some hay, some honey
    • Taste
      82 82
      Malty, spicy, some hay and honey
    • Finish
      80 80
      Short. Quite drying and some bitterness. Small waves of honey and malt die off quickly.
