10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.75 points
Sweet, pleasant malt, oranges, lemons, half-ripe blackberries, cassis syrup, blueberries, earth, roots, tree bark, grass notes, furniture polish and leather, peaches and lychees, old, dusty books, caramel fudge with salt and beeswax. Everything is very well balanced. Good balance between sweet and sour flavors.
Lemons, furniture polish, ginger, unripe dark berries in honey, pepper and red apples.
Caramel, overripe peaches, lemon zest, apple compote; pleasant and soft. Very nice malt.
- Wow, a really good whisky, mature, good balance between fruit and wood, plus the surprising smoke in the nose. A great example of why long-seasoned malts do not need dominant 1st Fill Casks, but just a lot of time. No slashing wood, it is still very fresh, alive like a young whisky and yet it offers all the complexity of an old malts.
Fruit basket with pineapple, lemon and some apple, surprisingly also a decent load of camp fire smoke, decent oak a few herbs and a lot of beeswax, round and despite the age very fresh and lively in the nose
Citrus flavors, wood, vanilla, pineapple and some spices
long, oak barrels dominate the fruity notes for the first time, but without becoming too woody or bitter
- These refill hogsheads can create magic. The fruity character of the spirit is maintained and even increased, and soft layers of beeswax, polish, herbs and soft spices are added. A real delicacy.
Soft, delicately fruity and lightly peated at first nosing. A lot of beeswax and soft barley, fresh lemon, pineapple and something that would be the middle of peach and lychee. Call that peachee. The sweet notes are balanced by some cooling mint and grass. There seems to be a whiff of smoke, but this vanishes quickly.
Gets beehyvier and more on polished oak and vanilla after a while, with a big fruit basket of pineapple, red apple and soft fruit. The match with the herbal notes is perfect. It gets a bit mineral too, but only slightly and not disturbingly.
Deliciously sweet and sour, fruity and spicy. Lemon juice, pineapple, lychee, quite some ginger, cinnamon, and mint. Some droplets of water help to reduce the astringency.
Long, lingering, on beeswax, vanilla, soft fruit and cinnamon and still a bit of mint. Lovely.
- This smells and tastes like an old Clynelish. If you would taste this blind you'd think it's a mild Islay or a peaty highlander. Very good.
