  4. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very spicy nose, fruity aromas come later. Again, typical soapy aspects on the palate and on the finish. Overall little fruit. Can be drunk undiluted.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sulphur, cardamom, savory, vanilla, pepper, sour, roasted aromas, delicate citrus fruit
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet, spicy, honey, the alcohol burns, a little bitter, pepper, soap
    • Finish
      84 84
      Mid-length interception; Soap, bitterness, toasted oak, strong but still acceptably integrated alcohol, a hint of exotic fruit

  5. ConvalRen scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Well rounded and balanced, could do just more in terms of complexity for a high score.

  6. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A little crazy, but great combo of power, spice and beautiful tropics, the nose could be a little more open, but typically at almost 60%.
    • Nose
      Could almost be young Chichibu, very concentrated toffee and almonds, boiled down IPA beer, that hint of ash and charred oak, vanilla and almonds, everything quite focused and not spreading out too much, ginger, wax and white pepper, a hint of banana chips and dried pear
    • Taste
      Cardamom, turmeric, pear, banana chips, vanilla, marzipan, litchi and pineapple, litchi, very nice, like caperdonich and chichibu blinded, a hint of incense sticks still simmering, beautiful oak notes further back and slightly crunchy light malt, pecans, almonds, a hint of white pepper
    • Finish
      White pepper, mango, pineapple, lychee, ginger, turmeric, long

  7. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very interesting Lochside.
    Very cerebral, with a nice complexity.
    Its little rose scent bothers me a bit, but it also adds to the charm of the dram.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Nice nose, slightly camphorated.
      Lemon candy, aromatic herbs, green banana.
      Light smoke, ash. White pepper.
      Light fragrance, rose.
      It's quite complex, and the nose is worth exploring.
      With aeration a very slight exoticism.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth the alcohol is well integrated.
      The perfume takes over, always with the rose.
      Pineapple, banana, lime, lychee. The fruitiness is also present.
      Pepper, light peat.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish, slightly peaty, smoky. Exoticism, lime vanilla. Fresh mint, coriander seeds.
      Slightly metallic.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fresh, fruity, uplifting!
    • Nose
      Icing sugar, mint, honey, malt and lemon.
    • Taste
      Mint, fruit, banana and other yellow fruit, lychee, vanilla. 
    • Finish
      Long, and fruity.
