  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Yes, that too is sherry, but too much refill, too tart, too little fruit. Not so balanced and also rather thin from the aroma density.
    • Nose
      Sherry, of course, again the slightly sour fruits, but then more toffee, a slightly dusty component, pear, bright fruits, some honey.
    • Taste
      very dry. a lot of refill, spices, oak.
    • Finish
      dry, slightly astringent, oak, dark chocolate.

  4. J.K.Ch scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Pretty boring whisky. All right, but they get the nuts out of the boredom.
    • Nose
      Sweetly sweet, strong hazelnuts (new walnuts and fresh appetizers) with a dash of dough. Vanilla, sweet pastry and pinch cinnamon can be found in the scent.
    • Taste
      The taste is malt and somewhat honey, but otherwise quite faint.
    • Finish
      The mouthpiece is shorter, somewhat returning to the nuts, with a slight hint of the crispness of the bruised shell of scarcely ripe hazelnut.

    Incredibly boring every respect. Nice price, however...

  7. Dirk did not rate this whisky Super Administrator

    • Nose
      Sherry notes, floral and nuts. Like the smell and it's a nice promise for the taste. Hope it can live up to it. Faint smell of burned butter.
    • Taste
      Buttery, soft in on the tongue, somewhat thick. Barley / malty. Less honey then the younger ones. Nice mouth feeling.
    • Finish
      Rather disapointing to me
