  1. RichardMayston scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Excellent 
    • Nose
      With water, best nose 
    • Taste
      Bit of nail polish remover, but given time you get past this. 

      Another builder's tea break but not quite as good

  2. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Douglas Laing & Co
    • Nose
      On the nose, detect soft vanilla spice, American cream soda style, with fresh lemon zest. 
    • Taste
       The palate is still sweet and zesty, with a lemon meringue pie quality, developing to rich spices.
    • Finish
      The finish carries a long toffee with chillies quality before running drier to an oak style.
