  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    yes, you can drink. Delicious Speyside all-day dram, which somehow lacks a bit of depth.
    • Nose
      Sherry, some toffee, butterscotch, caramel, a small floral note, relatively soft and round.
    • Taste
      surprisingly strong, almost a little alcoholic, then at first very sweet, sugary, caramel, later a little more bitter notes, walnuts
    • Finish
      a clear sweet in the background, in front of it a few tart oak notes, something floral again, then the whisky becomes sweeter at the end, with a little bit of soap.

  4. irrerelevant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    the alcohol strength of 43% fits well, needs some time in the air, a bit rough, a lot of Brennereicharakter, the corners and edges are Macallan mMn but very good
    • Nose
      Hay, (hints of smoke?), Mineral, typical "Speyside", floral, clearly apple / pear, light caramel, some vanilla, cereals, slightly scented, vinous, nutty, a little bitterness of walnuts
    • Taste
      slightly sour, dry, light and fruity sherry, cider, champagne, dry oak, Capri-stalk, a little youthful, yet "full", has substance, nice mouthfeel, soft, creamy and still lively, grapeseed oil, passion fruit
    • Finish
      gets drier and then flattens off
