  3. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice, fat, sweet
    Laddie (sounds a bit like me).
    • Nose
      The nose is greasy
      and sweet. Reminds me of suet. Or buttered milk, but smoky. Okay, that sounds a
      bit odd. Sweet olive oil, as if that exists. But you know where I am going. Quite
      some sweetness in the form of peach, but also sour Granny Smith apples in
      combination with maritime, smoky elements. Cows in the stable while being fed.
      I quite like this.
    • Taste
      Boy, this does not
      need any water. Sure, the attack is powerful, but it is not scorching at all.
      Nice, sweet peat (reminding me of Port Charlotte, which is not very surprising)
      with loads of hay, cow hide and polished leather opposite the fruit. Very
      greasy, again, you can almost spread it on toast!
    • Finish
      The finish is very,
      very long, which is no punishment here. It dies on a mild salty note.

  4. macgeert scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    In spite of the label saying "10 years old"

    it`s in fact "11 years"
