37 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.44 points

  1. spigray scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    imho this is brilliant stuff and much more affordable than the 23yo.
    I looove the 23yo but in the uk its absolutely overprized. so all you british friends, try to get you a sample of this one
    90/100
    • Nose
      loads of beeswax candles, reminding me of the 23yo.(not quite as big as the 23yo) apples, vanilla, icecream wafers, pleasant hints of oak, ginger cookies. give it a few minutes and it gets more floral and a little grassy. lovely!
    • Taste
      waxy, almost coating your teeth, honeycomb, quite sweet, but theres a huge spiciness against the sweetness, vanilla,
      vanilla ice cream,, ginger, tarte tatin. absolutely lovely
    • Finish
      long, getting a little drier and slightly oaky

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Obviously better than the 12yo, and with a nice, fruity nose and taste, but could have used a bit more character. I had mine in a blind tasting where the whisky must've spent quite some time in the glass already before I got to it, so it could be it had lost a bit of oomph. I could imagine going up to 84-85 if that was the case.

  5. namnug scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Vanilla, oaky, with slight plume. hint of peatiness
    • Taste
      Thick and smooth. Cocoa and vanilla. With a dominating fruitiness. oaky later comes by. Ginger spice
    • Finish
      Medium length, hint of spice

  6. mr_braun scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Clear better than the 13 year old brother. The difference to the 17er, however, very low to marginal.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), oak spice, herbal notes, lime zest in the nose.
    • Taste
      Taste continues to be fresh and fruity with lots of oak and light dryness. Very harmonious.
    • Finish
      Finish medium-long and slightly bitter.

  7. HunterRomario scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Vanilla, muesli with candied fruit. It is distinctly malt, sweet. Citrus. Light, sweet, cereal flavor with a touch of flesh at the end. Stylishly reminds me of GlenDronach 14 yo Sauternes. (86 b)
    • Taste
      Citruses, cereals, wood, vanilla. Fine spicy spiciness and frugality. Unfortunately, in the flavor, the resulting impression spoils the oak bitter. (82 b)
    • Finish
      I once had a 17 year old WF version. Now from the bottom (thanks!), Two years older version. But according to memories and notes, it was better to have a smaller version. At that I did not notice the bitterness in reverberation. Damage.

  9. maltaholic scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A very nice malt, which goes well with the 13- and 17-year-old, but above all with the outstanding 23-year-old ...
    • Nose
      After 2 minutes in the glass spreads a very pleasant Arma in the immediate vicinity: intense woody notes, very slightly vanilla.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then rather spicy. Laurels, cloves, hay, wood. But also licorice, sawdust.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the seasoning remains medium.
