  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    Arguably the most unknown and mysterious Scottish closed distillery. Just became famous in geeky whisky circles the last ten years when it already was long-gone. This Silent Stills expression from Signatory is a real beauty. O boy, I wished I was already in whisky when this bottle was released.
    • Nose
      Lovely nose of candied apples, tangerines and apricot jam intermingled with beeswax and old furniture. Followed by sherry notes of prunes, raisins, dried figs and dates. Sweetness of honey and maple syrup as well. Milk chocolate. Soft hints of tobacco and cigar boxes in the background. So nice!
    • Taste
      Soft and gentle with different layers of red fruitiness of raspberries, strawberries, and rosehips. Blackberries and cassis. Also hints of dried coconut and green bananas. Spices of caraway and chicken-masala. Touch of sandal wood in the background. A beautiful and complex palate rarely tasted.
    • Finish
      Endless and well balanced, with lots of pink grapefruit bitter-sweetness, cinnamon and rosemary. A little mint at the end.

  3. ChefScotch scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    It was so savoury on the nose and such a tropical fruit bomb with peaches on the palette.
