  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    85/86.
    Notes from a dram on a tasting evening by Diageo.
    • Nose
      Almond, caramel, lemon and hazelnut.
    • Taste
      Almond, caramel, peat smoke, lemon and vanilla. With water some pepper. It may say unpeated, but there's clearly some peat in there.
    • Finish
      Toffee, almond, smoke, lime and apple.

      Young, vanilla, toffee, fruits
    • Taste
      Sweet, lemon and grapefruit peel
    • Finish
      Medium long with lots of sweetness and vanilla

  3. Lafroy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose gives the sense of power and young age. A lot of fruit and citrus notes, vanilla, toffee, dried fruits, cherry, ozone and freshness.
    • Taste
      It´s very sweet, condense, and lightly sour with lemon and tangerine in the aftertaste. It´s definitely fresh and completely free of smoke.
    • Finish
      Long with a lot of sweetness, nuts in honey and citrus notes.
