  1. AlexBonoGreen scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    At first, it seemed weak, but with aeration, the balance began to straighten, pleased with the combination, as in Caol Ila, of minerality and fruit raspberry shades. Young, but fervently. Campbelltown is a temple of whisky, and releases from this region do not need advances!
    • Nose

      Op-pa! It smelled of medicine, minerality, a little bit of a scent, dusty paper, lemon juice, Vitamin C tablets, bandages, freshly cut grass. Dryer and saltier, less fruity than Release4 8yo. After an hour, he suddenly found balance in the aroma, became a little sweeter, the medicine went away, and honey notes, vanilla and another white peach came in its place.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Hot pepper rolls smoothly, the taste is denser than that of Release 4 8yo 2018, tart wood, apple juice with pulp, raspberry, medicine and minerality have evaporated, bitter rind.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Raspberry and in the aftertaste, tannins, though knit a little, but there is a fruity sweetness.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Mineral smoke, wax, maritime notes, vanilla, some salt, malty. An idiosyncratic whisky, the light smoke and the little sweetness makes it interesting.

    Massive smell and taste of vanilla. Sort of condensed      taste. The liquid is a bit raw bit still pleasent.

    well balanced, sweet and malty whisky! vanilla and oaky spices, even a little peppery. grassy. Really well balanced. found this one in may 2017 for € 45,- which i consider a quite reasonable price for this fine bottle

  10. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A good WIP, but not the best. Enthusiasm 3/5
    • Nose
      First mineral, evoking slate, quite direct, it then gives malt, farm peat and granny smith apples. Later, the bourbon cask takes the ascendancy.
    • Taste
      Much softer than the nose (honey, vanilla ...), it has a beautiful texture, but remains a bit angular - a sign of youth.
    • Finish
      Rather delicate and fruity, beautiful persistence on sweet spices.
