    Good but not great.
    • Nose
      Sherry, sweet, fruit & nuts, coconut, mint, stuffed chocolates, raisins, apples, dates, banana & pineapple.
    • Taste
      Sweet sherry, orange, raisins, nuts, wood.
    • Finish
      More wood, herbs, spices, sweet fruity sherry, nuts, lemon peel. Rather short.

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet raisin, lovely wood texture, hint of vanilla and pineapple. Other overripe tropical fruit. Intense and complex nose, yet sweet and familiar.

    Taste: sweet sweet honey, marzipan, marmelade, red fruit and some old hints of the classic rothes taste. Everyone will love this. Yet less complex as the nose.

    Body: soft as silk.

    Finish: medium- long: sweet more wood, less red fruit, yet tasty.

    Price: for a 13yo a bit high. But considering the other spirits it might be well priced.

    Presentation: Don't know this was a sample.

    It s ok but nothing to get excited about.
    • Nose
      Nice nose, warm jam sponge cake, marzipan and slight ginger note.
    • Taste
      Too thin on the palate for me, and it is hot without much flavour. I get a little caramel traces of orange and a very slight biter note.
    • Finish
      Quite short and dry

    Nice dram, not very suprising, but good value for money 
    • Nose
      Fruit, green apples, soft, slight alcohol smell, shoe polish, cacao
    • Taste
      bit sharp around the edges, soap, 
    • Finish
      strong aftertaste, dark pure chocolate, with a bite.
