  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Strathi, I like the guy better than the whole GM bottlings, this is really a substitute for a great cognac.
    • Nose
      Very nice aromatic nose, not so deep, but nice full and round, some drupes, red apples, pears, a few plums, almost some glucose, round oak, some tobacco and thyme, and rosemary
    • Taste
      One already has this bitterness, which I had meanwhile often with Strathisla, the oak makes itself well noticeable, then comes however also the brown, lightly burnt sugar, bitter chocolate, in the meantime the fruits come up briefly, baked apple, dried apricot, has in the Acting like a pre-poster said something of a great cognac
    • Finish
      Long, the fruits remain with their seeds, tannins, nutmeg and clove, rosemary and warm oak

  7. SilentStill scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A great nose, the great anticipation awakens for the palate. There, however, the connoisseur is a little disappointed, so that even the long echo of this Speysider can no longer lead to great consecrations. Still, the bottom line is worth a dram.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully soft and gentle to the touch, accompanied by also very delicate and restrained wood flavors that hold wonderfully flattering in the nostrils. A little later, a little Prittstift mixes with it and thus provides more "spice". Overall, quite dry but at no time musty or musty. The grape sweets can be detected at any time.
    • Taste
      First a light to moderate bitterness, then followed by sweeter aromas that leave the impression of a dark chocolate. In view of the "only" 48% surprisingly strong and slightly alcoholic. Too bad, because the (grape) fruit on the palate sometimes more, sometimes less covered. In addition, quite one-dimensional.
    • Finish
      Remarkably long and fortunately without any alcoholic notes and with less bitterness, but rather again the soft and warm wood with a hint of dark grape

  8. Roel scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Great and excellent dram from Duncan Taylor. Vey drinkable without water. It can have some though, so start with adding only a few drops before increasing to taste.
    • Nose
      Plenty of soft stonefruits (part. pears but also prunes and apple butter). Also some rum-raisins from sherry? Quite some spices too and tobacco.
    • Taste
      Fruity, tender oak notes (nice ones) and creamy. Reminds me of good old rum or cognac.
    • Finish
      Quite long and reminds me of sweets and dried fruits. Some spices from the barrel, part. pepper and cloves (just a tad).
