  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    White wine, honey, lemon sherbet sweets on the nose plus a cereal note I agree with DenisL there is some bread in the mix also.
    Nice mouthfeel, creamy sweet and spicy , this tastes much older than 5 year.
    some grapefruit, lemon, puff pastry, icing sugar on the palate.
    Not a long finish but its pleasant enough.

    Considering this is 5 years old this has some nice aspects taste wise.
    I would buy a bottle, these notes are from a sample.

  6. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Balance sheet (21) I'm sure (but it's not certain) that the basis is Oban and the rest of Hylandy. And there are obviously a lot of spirits older than 5 years (84)
    • Nose
      Malt, unleavened bread ... sea salt ... sweet, boiled shrimp ... crab sticks (Auban?) ... a citrus note (21)
    • Taste
      Pleasant, fruity, slightly burning, tree (21)
    • Finish
      Finish slightly spicy, oily ... salt and fruit compote ... pepper and vanilla ... smoke (21)

  7. Dottore scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    77 points, with most blends (except Japanese) I just do not get warm. There is some old bottle flavor, but everything is very watery and thin
    • Nose
      Pear, honey, vanilla and plum. Pepper. quite fresh, a bit lemony
    • Taste
      watery and very dry very quickly. Much oak, maybe minimal smoke? light pepper. No fruit and unfortunately no sweeties. very one-dimensional and boring
    • Finish
      rock. very bitter astringent
