  1. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    the nose is almost like light perfume, no alcohol sting, just a beautiful field of barley and flowers. taste and finish are also consistent with the nose. don’t misconstrue it’s lightness as bland, the ABV kicks up the experience into a satisfying mellow harmony of beautiful floral, light fruits, rich honey, cream and butter
    • Nose
      very aromatic floral and butter, sweet grains, cream, vanilla extract, light candle wax, light pears
    • Taste
      vanilla, light cream, light fruits, sweet grains, rich honey, maple syrup, floral, light nuts, light coconut cream
    • Finish
      medium-long, cream, light fruits, sweet grains, honey, light sawdust, creamy light sweet vanilla at the back with light nuts and grass

  5. molar3rd scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Very aromatic and fragrant. A beautiful nose. Lots of barley. Sweet juices. Golden syrup. Cotton candy and a zesty note too. A bit of a waxy note there as well. I could sniff that for hours. Really beautiful.

    Palate:Oily and sweet. Very creamy too with a big honey note. Just a giant honey comb sitting there smack in the middle. A touch of exotic fruit too. Ripe melon. Fresh coconut milk. Milk chocolate with nuts, then turns biscuit-y and caramel-y too. Think lotus cookies.

    Finish : Honey. Caramel. Sweet barley.

    Bottom line:

    The nose is stunning on this dram, with that aromatic honey, and candy with just the right amount of malt. The palate is also lovely. Excellent stuff. definitely in the 90’s.

    Not overly complex but very enjoyable. Powerful and light at the same time. A whisky for summer - pure sunshine
    • Nose
      Black pepper. After a moment- malt barley, muffins, a hint of lemon, and some waxy polish. Sweetens and develops with water. Creaminess cut with lemon
    • Taste
      Intense. Spicy, zingy, citrus maltiness. Lots of aromatic honey. Creamier with water (which to my taste it needs)
    • Finish
      Warm, spicy, with malt barley and honey. Quite long
