  2. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Fruity - apple, strawberries, kiwi and juicy melon and syrup. Milk chocolate and some saw dust.
    • Taste
      Malty, citrus, honey, caramel, some nuts and fruity.
    • Finish
      Hay, fruity, some orange and chocolate. Spices and later bitter fruits - grape fruits.

  3. Mannix65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Unspectacular for his age
    • Nose
      First, surprisingly Hubba Bubba chewing gum, anise, soap, caraway and cloves, then spicy Maggie herb, even later the typical Speyside aromas of sherry bottlings such as chocolate banana, cranberries and cocoa
    • Taste
      Red berries and subtle sherry, unfortunately a bit watery
    • Finish
      Rather short

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    I don't notice the sulphur in this one which is clearly present in cask 6918. This one is better in my opinion.In comparison to cask 6928, the fresh fruity notes in this one really stand out. It is much more subtle than that one. 88/89 points.
    • Nose
      Raspberry, leather, plum, apricot, cherry, wooden furniture, blueberry, melon, toffee, cocoa, grapefruit, grain and calcium. A light touch of red meat as well.
    • Taste
      Blueberry, cherry, grapefruit, pepper, leather, prune, peach, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Also something that reminds me of rum.
    • Finish
      Leather, blueberry, dark chocolate, blood orange, cinnamon and a little pepper.
