  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    floral, fruit (apple/pear) on the nose.
    Vanilla, sweet, firm, dry on the palate.
    Warm, dry short on the finish.
    It didn't gave the depth I was hoping for!

  2. Crann feàrna scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For such a relative simple bottling; nothing fancy, a bit sanitized, it has taken me many tastings to get to know this whisky. It takes water very well, it is not easily drowned. Even a 1:1 ratio does not necesarily kill it (see below). And still just 43% abv. Many indies available. This is how the owner Diageo wants to show it, via their own indie outlet: F&F. Happy with that.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Grainy. Nuts. Light sweetness. Bread dough. Metallic. Savoury herbs dressed with sugar. Marzipan and honey.
      With water the nose is very different. All separately definable notes are integrated in 1 undefinable aroma (and we call it: whisky). No hint of alcohol in the nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The arrival is full and hot. Quickly shifting into a medium-long development of sweet and sour of juicy oranges, tangerines, some lemon.
      With water the heat in the arrival is gone. In fact, the arrival is gone. One big and long development of all sorts of juicy fresh citrus fruits and barley sugar. In the background there are the savoury dried herbs.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is dominated by a dryeness and bitterness of citrus white flesh. And later it becomes sweeter, leaving the aftertaste of barley sugar.

  4. PJH90 scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    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

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Good, simple and pleasant, the summer is silent, especially good flavor, taste / finish is simpler, but also do not cause any complaints.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Dense, oily, oak, sweet fruity-honey notes, vanilla, creamy-oily tones, light peppercorn.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, flower-honey, lollipops, light oiliness, apple peel, ginger candied fruits.

  6. kikkerneve scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    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

  7. vojt466 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Very fine whisky, unfortunately nothing interesting
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Cereal and drying with a rising light spiciness - short

  9. pianoman scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Light. Yellow apples, pears, some glue. Grass, damp soil, leaves.
    • Taste
      Soft with a slight sweetness. Malt, a little honey, mild pepper. Milk chocolate. Medium.

  10. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    To shortbread in the afternoon.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Slightly nutty oiliness, some lemon & orange. Nuts also cover the tongue with water, light floral notes and a small punctual growth.
