  1. alectron scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    perfectly clean & flawless bourbon speysider, just the alcohol sticks out a bit too much for my taste.

    W water: still somewhat stingy, woody spicyness comes forwards
    • Nose
      very fresh & lively with a strong mineral edge first off. wood +/o, malt sweetness +/o, mineral/sand-y/wet-sand-stone +/o, lemon o, honey o/-, chamomille o/-, (86)

      A bit later: vanilla & caramel come into play as well, nice balance on the nose (89)
    • Taste
      some sharp-ish alcohol despite the not-too-high 52.6%.

      wood +/o, aprictos o, very briefly white chocolate o, with a hinto of tobacco notes (82)
    • Finish
      some woody dryness +, sweet malt notes +/o, lemon cake o, some tea notes, slightly burnt butter caramel, some vegetable/plant-y notes in the finish – thinking of clover & courgettes for some reason, but not a distinct taste of either (85)
