  1. ctu scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Although young, but good presentation of the highland line. The 67.9% is not exaggerated for me!
    • Nose
      Sweet fruits, flowers, honey, rum raisin. Touch of oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Big dose of dry, tannic, spicy oak. Fruits, especially plum. Raisin.
    • Finish
      Long, warm, spicy.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    very intense, needs a lot of water, but then deep fruity sherry notes with some liquorice (probably the youth). Comes over older than he is and is a pretty hefty affair.

  4. Goethe scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very fruity and rumy sherry based malt with a powerfull 67,9 ABV. Not as young and spicy as expected.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Sherry, orange, nuts, marzipan, tobacco, leather, plums, rum chocolate. With water: hints of sulphur.
    • Taste
      Sherry, coffee, tobacco, rum chocolate (very rumy at all), red fruits.
    • Finish
      Long. Oak, leather, sherry, sugared plums, sugar cane, spicy.

    My best guess is that this could be a Springbank from fresh sherry hogshead - the taste of leather boots is something I've seen already many times with Springbanks. Unfortunately this is not necessarily my favorite kind of Springbank.

    • Taste
      Hot burning, leather boots galore, oak wood with a subtle sweetness, some dark fruits,plums and raisins again.
    • Finish
      Long and burning
