  1. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    For dessert or fruity biscuits.
    • Nose
      Very sweet, a good portion of malt, some icing sugar, some bunch of herbs. Pleasantly fragrant & slightly lemony. Water tickles notes of malt with a cocoa note, orange slices with chocolate coating, a hint of citrus fruit mixed.
    • Taste
      Clear & neutral mouthfeel, malty & firm. Spicy fruit acid with a small bitterness. With Waser chocolate. Pinkish fruitiness, sweetness paired with herbs.
    • Finish
      Chili-like finish over fruity sweetness, lemon & orange. With water chocolate sweets, some malt & cocoa notes. Not as intrusive as without water.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    t's a tenuous link, but is one bovered? Here are three malts i tried recently that are associated by rarity, scarcity and unfamiliarity. I've only previously had two St Magdalene WB, only two single cask expressions of Macallan WB and only one Allt-a-Bhainne WB. Let's change all that.

    N: Mackmyra [Bruks] like with pear drops and pineapples. Very like [light] new-make in aroma but the wood (maybe on it’s last fill) has done its part merely to soften without imparting. That makes it creamy barley spirit.

    T: Hearty, creamy, sweet-sour, straight ahead spirit finish.

    F: Spirity yet flavoursome. Never harsh, more rough and ready, a tad.

    C: Totally distillate led. It's ok, really but oh for better casks - the distillate deserves them.

    Scores a D+
