    • Nose
      Light fruits such as orange, pear, grapefruit and lemon dominate the first nose. Some honey is added. Vanilla and caramel complete the rather light and fresh-looking aroma.
    • Taste
      Strong, voluminous, sweet and fresh start thanks to the 46 volume percent. Very oily, creamy mouthfeel. In addition to the bright fruit notes from the aroma to crystallize exotic fruits, such as mango and papaya added. The lemon and grapefruit make for a slightly acidic impact. A light honey note and a little milk chocolate make themselves felt. Some spice can also be perceived, which is increasingly powerful, but not too dominant.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet, light fruits continue to dominate and a fine spice passes the dram. Overall, very round and balanced.

    Rather light & easy drinking, an enjoyable pure, clean and simple malt whisky.
    • Nose
      Mineral notes, hint of solvent, green apple, banana and oak.
    • Taste
      Fresh citrus vanilla, mint, green apple, quite young and a bit harsh in taste. Fruity or even flowery bouquet.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish with vanilla, oak and mineral notes, perhaps even slightly smoky.

    • Nose
      87 87
      A sweet flowery honey note, shortbread cookies, pear, lychee and apricot. Some vanilla cake, waxy with paraffin and a slight solventy note, also almonds and ginger spices.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Creamy, a touch of salted butter, beeswax, honey, pear, pineapple, caramelized apple, pencil shavings, mild wood spices.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Short to medium in length: wood spices like pepper and ginger, wrapped in a wax like fruit (pineapple) and honey coating.

    This whisky is quite easy to drink and a good starter.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity - tropic fruits like ananas and papaya; after a while dry notes are developing - dark demerara sugar and a little bitterness. The oak and with it the vanilla is in the nose.
    • Taste
      Very fine and uncomplicated. It's a taste of vanilla and sugar. Oily and warming. On the palate there are dark fruits, which can also be found in a sherry cask matured whisky. The sweetness is delightful.
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet, vanilla and again the tropic fruits, reminds me of a cocktail, but I forgot its name.

    The nose was young, but not disturbingly so. On the palate and finish, this is simply marvelous. But unpeated? I think not.
    • Nose
      Sturdy, creamy nose on breakfast cereals, white fruit, paraffin, frying oil, litchi from a can and vanilla. Underlying you’ll detect the typical characteristics that you also find in Springbank such as chalk, jute and ship’s rope. Soft and inviting, though clearly young.
    • Taste
      On the palate, I immediately think of Springbank as well, but without the peat (note to self: doh!). Very creamy, spicy, waxy on paraffin, lime, chalk, (a lot of) ginger and something of cod oil. A salty note. But claiming this is completely unpeated, seems a bit off the mark. Could it be residue in the pipes? I do get an unmistakable peaty tang on the nose – which is very good, by the way.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, mineral and waxy and – surprise! – quite smoky. It dies a mildly bitter death.

    I like this a lot. I would love to taste this at 15-18 year of maturation.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Very fresh fruits like citrus, melon and green apple notes, some icing sugar no peat at all.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Again fruity, low on the oak so I think refill barrels are used. I think this would be great at cask strength
    • Finish
      82 82
      It is 10 years old, so no long or intense finish, but very fresh and none of the bitterness from the bourbon casks.

  9. Joschbert scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    pleasantly intense and round, but one-dimensional I like the light smoke, which I clearly notice (non-smoker). Officially, non-smoky malt is used - maybe residue from the fires for Springbank and Longrow?
    85-86 / 100
    • Nose
      sweet and sour pineapple, beautiful peat smoke note, honey, apricots, bright fruits
    • Taste
      salty-sweet, sandalwood, apple, behind the pleasant smoke makes some sharpness noticeable
    • Finish
      Caramel, apricot and peat smoke - medium to long

  10. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

      An unusual mole, soft, oak-rubber with chemical shades, immediately Ladyg remember, but softer and warmer.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, sawdust, wood shavings, light notes of the solvent, lemon zest, leather goods, weak plastic-chemical shades, dry medicinal herbs - wormwood, yarrow, a little rubber.
    • Taste
      Soft, wood-rubber, plastic shades, engine oil, a little black pepper fried nuts, furniture varnish.
    • Finish
      Soft, warming, spicy oak, leather, a little rubber and plastic, chemical sweetness.
