  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful drinking whisky, the optically on the shelf also makes something. Not an exception, but that would have been a surprise given the framework data. For longer storage, the vessels are in any case conceivable unfavorable, even with me cork and seal were very porous. I therefore recommend opening the bottle and enjoying it before the malts become untrinkable.
    • Nose
      A really fruity nose. Already very aromatic at the beginning, characterized by sweetish-fruity notes. Green apples, grapes, honey, shortcrust pastry. In the background discreetly a touch of oakier oak is noticeable. Overall, rather mild in the nose, which is not unusual considering the drinking strength.
      Could you blindly also consider one of the better Speysider.
    • Taste
      The mild impression is confirmed directly, in fact the malt needs something before it can develop. Then similar to the nose, although not quite as dominated by the fruits. Again, mainly green (sweet) fruits, honey and then decent oak. Not insanely complex or unbelievably varied, but simply a beautiful malt, which you can drink without much ado.
    • Finish
      In the finish then with slight tendencies to dryness. The oak is now noticeably more present. Unfortunately, the fruits are no longer able to put their stamp on this.
