  2. BeatF scored this whisky 88 points Moderator

    Not too young, but not too long stored in a sherry keg with very good quality. Ivan and Manuela had a lucky hand for their anniversary drink.
    • Nose
      Delightfully finely tuned bell sound: sweet sherry, mint, which stings easily in the nostrils, honey
    • Taste
      Spicy honey, raw cane sugar, apple essence bitterness
    • Finish
      and rears again with light bitterness from the oak and sweet dryness of the sherry and then comes the pre-announced on the bakery grapefruit

  4. Drochaid scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The nose has honey and beeswax with toffee apples. Water brings out fresh notes of candied citrus peel and orchard fruits. On the palate there is apple crumble topped with brown sugar, sherry cask spices and pink grapefruit on the finish. (arran)

    Congratulations to the 10th anniversary. A successful whisky "10th Anniversary of House of Single Malts" for a birthday. Continue good business with quality advice and products. Best regards Drochaid
