  1. vojt466 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Good drinking, on a plastic miniature, I certainly did not expect so much ..
    • Nose
      In the smell of wax, honey, oak, vanilla, malt, a little fruit compote in the end - very pleasant
    • Taste
      In taste sweet and at the same time oily and full - honey, wax, caramel, malt and a little spices
    • Finish
      The mouthpiece is very long with primarily woody tones, nuts and a little spice

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    In terms of malt style, it's the taste of the best whisky I drank. Aroma is so average, but taste is unexpectedly pronounced, and it was so much fun. I had a miniature bought from Dios, I would take a bottle of all ten.
    • Nose
      A distinctly malty scent, honey-sweetened with orange peel, grep and pleasant wood. (85 b)
    • Taste
      Beautifully sweet, malt, honey, chocolate, citrus. Beautifully smooth. Sweetness is very distinctive and pleasant, balanced by pleasant woodiness and citrus. (89 b)

    Sturdy malt that does not disappoint. If I had to gamble, I would say this is a young Clynelish.

    A friend from Germany
    recently sent me a 'blind' sample with the request of trying to identify it. A
    bit of a test. But I am happy to take on this challenge, although I realize it
    is a very difficult, but also very fun, exercise. I tried it, wrote these notes
    and sent them to Michael. Only afterwards did he let me know what I had tasted.
    A few days after
    reading my tasting notes, Michael sent me a little video in which he revealed
    the bottle. His commentary was short and sweet: 'bulls' eye!'.
    • Nose
      Fresh nose on loads
      of citrus. A touch of pineapple cubes, malt, hint of pilsner (the good kind),
      hazelnuts and some dandelions. Softly spiced on ginger and a lot of liquorice.
      Nice evolution. Some candle wax. No, it is paraffin. Becomes quite waxy indeed.
    • Taste
      Soft arrival on the
      palate, but very expressive from the get go. The waxiness from the nose is even
      more pronounced on the palate. The fruit is white. Think appels and a single
      pear. Some citrus, but not as much as on the nose. A nice smokiness and a touch
      of peat.
    • Finish
      Long finish on spices
      and white fruit. Bittersweet death.
