    Way too oaked!
    • Nose
      74 74
      Some stone fruits and melon, but mostly sawdust and oak furniture going towards rancid butter.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Again some fruitiness, but it's all buried under massive oak influence. It does have a little vanilla smoothness.
    • Finish
      76 76
      Drying with a little bitterness and oak spices (ginger and coconut).

    • Nose
      82 82
      Bee honey, citrus fruits, far back banana ?, stands out, fresh bread dough / farmer's bread, mango
    • Taste
      82 82
      Distinct bourbon, pepper, comparatively soft, light honey notes, a little hay?
    • Finish
      81 81
      Rather short, the pepper remains, a pleasant, enigmatic sweetness ... some Bitter Oak

    Mackmyra continues to out out great stuff, albeit youthful this is a great dram.  I think when some serious age statements come along, Scotland will have a real run on their products.
    • Nose
      The nose is fragrant, spicy oak, hand lotion and banana puree. Hints of bay leaf and thyme. Smooth creamy porridge underneath.
    • Taste
      The body is lively and soft at the same time. More oily texture with a subtle sweetness. Polished wood and malt, the spice prickles through. Lots going on.
    • Finish
      The finish is a little short but rewarding, loads of that creamy malt porridge and hints at clove and mace spices.

  10. larswehmeier scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Red-berry jam. Creamy honey sweetness and a bit of toffee. Smells very delicious for me. And then the banana that I already discovered in the "Bruks Whisky" comes through again.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly spicy and warm. Less sweet than the nose. For much fruity. A good dose of oak comes through in the end and brings a bit of dark chocolate with a pleasant bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium long and pleasantly warm.
