  1. bennythemonster scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Ayrshire 1998-2014, 16 years, 43% alc.
    Bottler: Signatory Vintage
    Region: Lowlands, Scotland Special feature: Single Grain Whiskey Nose: Slightly alcoholic, but settles very fast. Tropical fruits, melon and mango, grapefruit and lemonade. Behind it cereals and a small trail of black pepper, with time, a little stronger, he alternates with the alcoholic touch. Palate: Slightly sweetish with the fruit notes of the nose, but also added strawberries and menthol, cereals and mint. Behind it follows again a good portion of pepper. Finish: Rather short, light, silky and slightly fruity. In addition a certain bitterness, however without oak. Conclusion: The nose is okay, palate and finish silky and creamy. 80/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 35 €) Original published on: www.notesofmalt.de
