  3. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very well made, easy to drink. Yet nothing special.
    • Nose
      A somehow mouldy touch right from the beginning. Along with some freshly cut grass and light peat. Some fresh pears and peaches.
    • Taste
      Sweet start, initially spicy. The pears and peaches turning more ripe and sweet. 
    • Finish
      Sweet at all time. Very malty and again a touch of peat.

  4. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    The soft smoky notes and the earthy / malty notes give this otherwise rather average malt a nice kick. Certainly not everyone's taste but I like it.
    • Nose
      Very malty, apple custard with sugar, fermented pears, a very soft smoky note, rotten wood
    • Taste
      Spicy on the nose, fruity sweet, slightly earthy and a hint of smoke
    • Finish
      In addition to the fruit sweetness is a nice Toffee note on the finish, together with the delicate smoke that forms a very nice medium-long finish
