  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    After a fantastic nose, he surprised with an unexpectedly mild onset on the tongue - the finish would have liked to be able to turn out a little longer. But that nose ...
    • Nose
      89 89
      A fresh and refreshing, salty sea breeze. Mineral. In addition, fruity-sweet with pineapple, mandarin and orange peel. Clove spice, some pepper. Removes a wildflower meadow. The aromas combine beautifully with each other, giving a very harmonious picture. Honey bread and vanilla, milk chocolate. Spices attract with time, but without becoming dominant. There is always this beautiful fruitiness and this sea feeling.

      Soft, mild and very creamy onset. Sweet fruit sweets with raspberry flavor. Apricots, quince marmalade, orange peel. Soft fudge, marzipan, malt, whole milk nut chocolate. Much less spicy (at least at the beginning, maybe it will), as one could assume because of the nose. A little bit for that with higher herbal content. Is becoming increasingly dry and has traces of fresh wood chips.

      Dry with whole milk nut chocolate, almonds, orange peel and coffee beans, woody.

    Wordless...one of the best I have ever tasted.

  3. Albaron scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    Quite delicious and easy drinking. Disturbing is the sprittig, which unfortunately is also quite present in the mouth. The fruits and the oranges are delicious and the bitterness is fun. But what is that whisky? Guess a finish, the solvents are present, but I do not believe in a pure bourbon ripening, because there are fruits here that are not found in bourbon. Raspberries are always an indication of port for me. Who knows? I guess at most 12 years, because the tannins indicate a rather younger whisky. The herbs from older wood are also missing here, only a few are shown. Alcohol content is at most 46%, maybe even less. But where does it come from? I would guess Highlands, it is robust so I don't think Speyside. But what distillery no idea. A Port Glendronach or a Tullibardine? Glenmorangie? But it doesn't actually taste like it. There is a port. Lasanta or what's its name?

    Notes created during a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      sprittig, solvent, oily, bright red fruits, especially raspberries and cherries, slightly sour, red groats, a few citrus notes, some malt in the background, with the citrus notes the oranges finally take command, supported by a few herbs
    • Taste
      Sprittig here too and the solvents, then also sweet raspberries, the oranges and the malt, in between always a bitterness, which offers a nice counterpoint to the sweetness and ultimately leads to the finish
    • Finish
      The bitterness stays and gets company of tannins and the malt shows up again and again. The tannins become more powerful in the end.

    Very nice nose.

    Light adhesive note,
    somewhat artificial, like bubble gum, pineapple, tangerines, oranges, Ricola herbal drop, black pepper, vanilla kipper, walnuts, violet cloves, wild honey
    and butter biscuits

      somewhat artificial, like bubble gum, pineapple, tangerines, oranges, Ricola herbal drop, black pepper, vanilla kipper, walnuts, violet cloves, wild honey
      and butter biscuits
    • Taste
      soft and oily, slightly tingling, tart, woody, then again this pepper note and also the herbs come to the fore again.
    • Finish
      unfortunately a bit short
      The color and taste do not suggest a Portweinreifung.
      Also for a Glenmorangie unexpectedly full and oily mouthfeel

    Body; Very soft indeed and smooth.
    • Nose
      Pronouncedly fruity and winey.
    • Taste
      The port seems to bring out butterscotch notes. It also adds sweeter, winey notes,and melds beautifully with the spiciness of Glenmorangie.
    • Finish
      Soothing,soporific  , relaxing. In no hurry to go.

  8. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    This one is noticeably subtler than the Quinta Ruban. It takes a few minutes to open up on the nose and palate, but, even after that, it is difficult to disentangle. Where the Quinta Ruban is bold and clear, this is quiet and diffuse. A good dram, though.
    • Nose
      Caramel, new oak and freshly cut lemon/lime peels, maple syrup, blackberries, dried cranberries, vanilla and menthol (pink Canada Mints)
    • Taste
      Red berries, oak, a rush of cinnamon and nutmeg, blackberry preserve, a bit of dark chocolate covered espresso beans, and walnut oil.
    • Finish
      Soft sweet citrus and a slow fade to soft oak tannins, pink Canada Mints, and faint raisins.
