  1. spigray scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Had it at 85 the last time I tasted it. but this time it convinced me! so two points up!
    • Nose
      87 87
      light malt, acacia honey, faint smoke, green bananas and oranges. sunflower oil. almost has a coastal touch which I really like a lot.
      it´s fresh and clean, spirit driven. I like it better than the 12er at least on the nose. not very complex but very pleasant.
    • Taste
      88 88
      round and fresh, again this pleasant light malty side with a few almonds. very light peat and some honey. slightly salted caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      some say it´s short in the finish but I tend to say medium.
      looking forward to the next sip.

  7. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    After I remembered the 12er quite well, this is already a disappointment. The nose was still pretty flowery fruity sweet, he is in the mouth, unfortunately, very watery, less smoky than the 12er and the sherry is not much to feel. Finish, what is it? Does not hurt anyone, but clearly harmless to me, too bad ...
    • Nose
      Williams pear, light smoke, slightly alcoholic, later flowery sweet, vanilla sweetness and a hint of sherry
    • Taste
      Very watery mouthfeel, the smoke comes out a bit stronger than in the nose, but is still only slightly noticeable, sugared citrus fruits and also here a little sherry
    • Finish
      Short slightly dry sherry finish

  8. Dunamys scored this whisky 77 points Newbie

    Apricot and cherry on the nose, decent colour. Starts of pretty plain but not bad, the body is rich and smoky. Finish is kinda bitter.
