  1. Malinois scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good whisky! Lovely nose and taste, the finish lacks just a bit to score higher.
    • Nose
      Sweet fruits, pear, note af sweet malt barley
    • Taste
      Fruit attack on the 'all day' fruits: pear, appel,.. some honey and vanilla. To the end the cask speaks: a bit drying, semi-polished wood with some soft spices.
    • Finish
      Caramel, vanille and some ginger spices evolve.After a few minutes a damp oak spice remains on the tongue.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very uneven and dispensable.
    • Nose
      Nose pretty basic on the apple and the pear. Pretty sweet and nice.
      Subsequently smells of egg cooked on the dish (first time I feel that).
    • Taste
      A little too alcoholic. Apple, pear, grapefruit.
    • Finish
      On the turpentine that goes up in the nose. Not great.
