  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted blind. Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1737
    • Nose
      A well-balanced nose with fruity, malt, cashew nut, everything looks juicy and creamy.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, melted, very mellow. Sherry soft, he is wise enough.
    • Finish
      Final quite opulent.

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very heavy Craigellachie. Unexpectedly complex. Good cask selection by Cadenhead (Mark Watt?).
    • Nose
      Rich oakiness. Hints of sherry. Stewed fruits. Dark chocolate and espresso coffee. Balsamico. Also tobacco. Very complex.
    • Taste
      Alcoholic at first. Waxy. Very robust. Leather. Bergamots. Orange marmelade. Spices of pepper and nutmeg. A little smokiness as well.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Bitterness. Becomes salty at the end.

  3. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    (Blinded) Pleasantly surprised, it's very good, with this little side Cooley / Irish very good. A real pleasure to taste it.
    • Nose
      What a nice nose on fruity and sweet ... a beautiful greed is announced with butter, pastry and fruit yoghurt.
    • Taste
      Spades lightly, we are on the fruits and the acidulous sweets
    • Finish
      Nice length on the fruit, pastry and buttered. Gourmet finale!

    • Nose
      89 89
      It has the nose of an old whisky: dusty or even stale at the beginning. Dry wood and a clear sherry influence (blood orange and currants). After aeration, leather appears
    • Taste
      90 90
      The mouth is a little "filthy" (it feels like a bit in Cambeltown where the mastery of blends of bourbons and butt sherry is unparalleled), but well balanced. The attack is supple and mixes candied fruit and oak dust. There is really a lot of finesse (subtle nuts). The mouth is a little "waxy"
    • Finish
      88 88
      The final is a bit short. It is expressed on dried fruits (nuts and hazelnuts) and spices (a little too present)
