  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Fruity whisky with a sharp edge, which disappears after adding only a small amount of water, after which it rolls smoothly over the tongue. Taste remains reasonable.
    • Nose
      fruity, orange peel, sultanas, raisins, appe; Fresh. Also sweet, honey. And some (oak) wood.
    • Taste
      Fruity but also powerful / spicy, sharp peppery edge, but certainly not too intense. Also honey, vanilla, orange, wood.
      With a few drops of water the sharp edge disappears and the sweet and fruity remains
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet and then becomes dry, woody. But also fruity, orange.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    An uncomplicated tasty dram. Compared to casks 7761 + 7762 (ID 50888) this one doesn't have that clay-like yeasty twist. I like this one even a bit better, but they're not worlds apart.
    • Nose
      A lot of honey and lime. A little marzipan and vanilla too. Not complex but very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Treaclier. Honey, beeswax, caramel and almond.
    • Finish
      Honey, caramel, vanilla, almond, hazelnut and a whiff of smoke.
