26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.28 points
- a zesty zing to it with a cashew-like nuttiness, not a bad Speyside; i felt adding a few drops of water helped take off what was a strong spirit rich hit to begin with
- Good, simple and pleasant, the summer is silent, especially good flavor, taste / finish is simpler, but also do not cause any complaints.
Open, dry, the first nose - bright apple-floral hues, then the intensity noticeably decreases, the tree comes out to the fore, the mineral motifs - stone crumbs, raw masonry mortar; some vegetables - radish, daikon; lemon peel.
Dense, oily, oak, sweet fruity-honey notes, vanilla, creamy-oily tones, light peppercorn.
Light, refreshing, flower-honey, lollipops, light oiliness, apple peel, ginger candied fruits.
- Faint nose, with the young alcohol coming thru. Some oaky and spicy tunes in the taste. Surprisingly though, a better finish than I expected. All in all not too special
- Very fine whisky, unfortunately nothing interesting
From the beginning, a very fine scent that needs to be developed for a while. After a while there are nuts and light eels. For a time, quite a bit of spiciness and peaches, vanilla and hay.
The fruit is sprouted with a thin honey syrup in combination with a later cereal flavor that only occasionally disturbs more sour lemon tones. Overall, the flavor is as light as scent, and only the spice is mentioned.
Cereal and drying with a rising light spiciness - short
Light. Yellow apples, pears, some glue. Grass, damp soil, leaves.
Soft with a slight sweetness. Malt, a little honey, mild pepper. Milk chocolate. Medium.
- To shortbread in the afternoon.
Sweet malt, slightly pungent, yet round & fine. A tiny little smoke, an idea chocolates, slightly nutty. Also with water a bit malt & slightly nutty. A little fruit with milk chocolate, a hint of raisin, in the background a little apple.
Warm and soft at the beginning with a hint of grassiness. Slightly nutty, including a little fruit, with a certain sharpness at the end. Water makes it appear much nuttier. Again, malty with apple notes. Fruity, creamy, sweet.
Slightly nutty oiliness, some lemon & orange. Nuts also cover the tongue with water, light floral notes and a small punctual growth.
- N: Possesses a lovely lightness with notes of stewed apples.
T: Tannic, sharp but it’s ok. Simple sherry notes remain with water.
F: Tannic sherry, quite bitter.
C: There are many shared characteristics between this and many of the other various distillery outputs in the F&F range. Good to try if not to buy it. Blog
Scores a C-
- The whisky is nice, however, 50€ for a ten years old one with 43 Vol.% ... a bit expensive.
Warm smell, wild honey. A nose full of flowers in late summer or autumn. Hints of lemon and lime. Overall "fresh". Apple, but not the fruit pulp, more the peel. Wet wood. Very gently some cocos.
Herbal brew or herb tea bag. Yellow fruits, but not exotic. Bitter vanilla, only slightly sweet (wild honey again). Wooden taste, earthy and chestnut. Some chocolate, slightly creamy. Some golden wheat.
Not very long, some oak. Still sweet, a toasted residue. Bitter almond.
