  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This ok with a nice apple note mixed with spices but the palate gets a little flat after that but then picks up at the finish which is the nicest part.

    An antique fruit bomb, especially on the nose, but a bit thin at 46%.
    • Nose
      Butanol. Ripe fruits, spicy oak, vanilla, honey and hazelnut chocolate.
    • Taste
      Waxy apple, grape and peache. Tannic oak, herbals and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity, spicy, floral.

    Very pleasant on the palate. The nose is less to my taste.
    • Nose
      A nose strong enough in alcohol for 46%. Rather woody and vanilla. We also have a compote of ripe fruits. Apricots, strawberries, blueberries and their light acidity. Medicinal eucalyptus and bandage. Hazel nuts arrive discreetly with the opening.
    • Taste
      Mouth lighter. Very fruity compared to the nose. Apricot always in the lead, followed by grapes, peach and pineapple. Fresher fruits.
      Slight woody bitterness. A little undergrowth.
    • Finish
      Average final. Slightly floral. Otherwise continuity of the rest on the fruit wall and chocolate.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Intensely fruity. Apricot, banana, yellow raisin, honey, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon and smoke. A light nuttiness in the background.
    • Taste
      Toffee, roasted almond, raisin, dried apricot, honey, milk chocolate, smoke and a little peanut. When it breathes some beeswax comes through.
    • Finish
      Toffee, almond, grape, pear, white chocolate, lychee and smoke.

    Lovely fruity old speyside style.

    slightly overripe exotic fruits. Sweet vanilla wood.

    so soft it almost feels a bit buttery and does taste like it too.

    Fantastic stuff. Don't say no if they offer you a dram of this :)

    95 for the nose, 85 for taste and finish. 89 it is.
    • Nose
      At first this one felt a bit too woody, but after 15 minutes in the glass the expected fruits started to show up: ripe passion fruits, very clear, mango, a little over-ripe pineapple and some fresh papaya. Also cinammon, white chocolate, and surprisingly bubblegum.

      What a complex and lovely nose, no water needed at all.
    • Taste
      The body is light and drying, and the taste fresh, herbal and lightly fruity. The wood is more apparent now, with dry sawdust that adds both vanilla and some bitterness.
    • Finish
      The finish is more herbal and bitter, and less fruity. Its pleasant, but the nose promised more.

  8. Jeep51 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Request time to open. But what a delicate fruity! Missing however a few degrees. Tasted as part of the Blind Tasting 2012 of http://www.whisky-distilleries.info
    • Nose
      A little wax, bubble gum. There are fruits but these are hidden behind a perfume that I can not identify. Eucalyptus? In any case, it is delicate: peaches, well ripe melon
    • Taste
      Round. Rather light. It's undeniably fruity. Very fruity even. Peaches, pears, citrus fruits too, clementines. It is delicate and supported by a veil of smoke that makes its appearance at the end of the mouth. Unfortunately it collapses fast enough
    • Finish
      Moderately long on wax and ripe fruit
