  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 77 points Specialist

    The last dram from a bottle that has been open for well over a year. Time has done it good. I like it better than at first pour. Muted nose, fair body and a nice but too short nutty finish.
    • Nose
      76 76
      Grain, grass, cereal, lemon, pear.
      All very light. Sweet and a little zesty.
      Alc has become more integrated with time, hardly noticable now.
    • Taste
      77 77
      Neutral mothfeel.
      Sweet, glazed yellow fruit.
      A little warmth, but extremely gentle.
      Traces of nuts.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Short of medium lenght.
      Stays on the yellow fruit theme.
      Dry walnuts at the very end.

    Honey, hazelnut and wood, this entry in the mouth is sweet and pleasant, a little shy, but well constructed. The fruits are welcoming, yellow plums, pineapple, apple, grapefruit. An astonishing mixture, which does not prevent the balance. In the mouth, it is spicy, paprika, curry, saffron. Rawhide. Grapes from Italy. Vanilla fillet. Light finish but quite long, mellow, on bananas, dried coconut. It is very smooth, refined, it is astonishing.

    • Nose
      80 80
      flowery nose, oranges and sweet fruit
    • Taste
      83 83
      honey, but not overwhelming
      While not special, it fits together nicely and gives more flavor then I'd expect from a 10 year old
    • Finish
      78 78
      first a nice spicy and oacky touch
      after oranges linger too much for my taste

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    He won't pick me up today. Too coarse, too inharmonious for a simple malt.
    The second tasting brought a little improvement, the grades remain, today it looks a bit pleasing, but still quite unimportant.
    • Nose
      In the nose it looks very young, mashy, out of round. A little vanilla, but nothing more. The nose catches, I just don't like the style that much.
    • Taste
      In the mouth for 40% quite heavy, almost spicy from the alcohol, little aroma, some corn flakes and malt sweetness.
    • Finish
      Somewhat sour in the finish, something green and bitter. More malty notes only over time.

  7. Archer scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Doesn't hurt, it's pretty easy to scoop off.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fresh and floral in the first contact with the nose, orange biscuits, malt, toffee, caramel, honey, vanilla. Sliced almonds, hazelnut brittle.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Mild and dry, slightly creamy. Almonds, orange peel, lemon, marzipan bread. Goes clearly into the nutty corner. In spite of the only 40% he does not look too thin.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Doesn't stay long and leaves a mixture of orange cookies and almond butter.
