  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    -Blind tasting-
    Tap 50%, origin: Scotland ;-) In the nose I thought it could have come from Glen Scotia, but it didn't really fit on the tongue. In any case, he was delicious!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh first impression with a fruity base of apricots, pineapple and lemon. A salty sea breeze and the smell of damp stones create a maritime feeling. Milk chocolate, honey, beet syrup.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Comes quite strong on the tongue and, unlike in the nose, is more on the chocolate side than it looks maritime. Mild herbal mix, creamy sweets, caramel, custard. Quickly dry. Coffee powder, some pepper and nutmeg.

      Medium and dry, clearly chocolate, nougat and marzipan. Dried apricots, pepper.

  5. keizerjos scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Peatje - yes, really - in the distance. Coarse citrus, wonderfully full and rich. Some tropical fruit, but not harsh - “hints of” banana, pineapple. Man, this one is good. The aftertaste is dry and savory, not the taste but the mouthfeel of good Italian sausage. Spicy Highlander - or is that double? There is something savory around this whisky. Swiped from WB: “spiciness with a kick of savory”, just right in my opinion.

  6. Ostfriese scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An elegant malt with a nice play of flavors. The intense aromas are well interwoven, but not intrusive.
    • Nose
      Fruity, slightly malty with tart apples, pears and peach, accompanied by vanilla, spruce needles and dried herbs, thyme and basil.
    • Taste
      Here you will find the fruity aromas, sour apples, limes, passion fruit and hints of oranges. The high alcohol content pushes the aromas and cloves, nutmeg and ginger emerge from the background accompanied by freshly beaten oak and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Milk coffee and herbal notes linger in the mouth and throat, which gradually have to give way to light grapes and spicy oak.
