  1. JoshNRW scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Many beautiful aromas and a well-developed malt, but not complex and not deep enough for the key data, a bit too trivial and one-sided to deal with this extensively. Nevertheless, a very tasty whisky - no more and no less, therefore a very tight 88 points.

      At the beginning a lot of peach in the foreground, followed by overripe light fruit and vanilla/honey aromas. Over time, the oak comes to the fore, definitely not a bad note, but the oak doesn't fit 100% into this malt for me.

      A transfer from Blenders to Glencairn again shows its weakness, overall too unspectacular and one-sided.

      Because it tastes very good to me and still lies charmingly in the glass, that's enough for me for 88 points - for more points the complexity, that certain something and also the perfection is missing.

      A bit too much oak again, followed by honey sweetness and then a (nice) bitterness again. The alcohol at the end was a bit too present for the 46% and the age.

      With a little water and time, the slightly alcoholic finish largely disappears, but it also loses volume and viscosity very noticeably as a result.

      Medium length but not very intense. Too alcoholic for the age.

    SMELL and TASTE is a feast of flavors opened with sweet honey, peach, Hawaiian toast. Then rosemary and brown sugar, suckling pig, peach and chilli jam. Plum compote with cloves. Creamy finish, brandy snaps and dough rolls with sweet cream.

  4. Bishlouk scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Vanilla, exotic liquoreux fruits. Sweet and round, and a slight iodine after aeration. Palate: Very vanilla and round. Fruit liqueur. Finale: Vanilla bitterness and woody drought. Verdict: quite disgusting and heavy after 3 sips.

    The name fits!
    • Nose
      Yes, definitely peaches, but also garden fruits like pears :). Spring fresh, Morgenau in a meadow. Freshly felled wood, a walk through a forest in the morning. Creamy in the shell, then minty, honey and caramel, malt and subtly nutty. 44 points.
    • Taste
      Average viscosity. Creamy-sweet onset with lots of fruity aromas, plus walnuts (not their bitterness!), Vanilla and caramel. Flattening fast in the middle part. Still tasty. 44 points.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, vanilla, caramel and molasses.
