    Very, very nice, well balanced standard, gets its own charm by the subtle smoky note.

  3. Imp scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: a bit more powerful than in 10 yo, more cream here and some perfumes.

    Taste: quite edgy and awkward, combo of sweetness and smokiness, but it doesn't combine with the nose.

    Finish: long enough, spices, wood, smoke and plums.

    Overall: I'd say 10 yo is more refined, the taste and balance in 12 yo left some embarrassment.

    Score = 21.5 20 21.5 21, 84/100!

  7. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Amber-orange.

    Nose: Campfire smoke, honey, light wax, raisin, cinnamon, malt biscuit.

    Palate: Smoky, salty, barley sugar.

    Finish: Sweet and malty, smooth, honey and biscuits.

    With Water: Comes together wonderfully.

    Overall: Very smooth and well balanced. Not super unique or impressive but delicious. I was actually a bit more impressed by the 10 y.o. at the distillery. Could be that this has been opened too long.

    At its best with a few drops of water, to soften the edges

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    The
    nose is crisp and fresh. Gentle, weaving smoke whirls above apple peels
    and crisp pears. The palate is of medium-body and very crisp. There are
    notes of peels and cut orchard fruits, a little floral note and a
    subdued peat smoke. The finish is of good length with a little spicy
    sweetness and smoke.
