  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice fruity whisky, especially a clear sour citrus touch in this one, from nose till finish. But certainly not unpleasant or disturbing at all, enjoyable dram.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruity, sour, citrus, grapes. Pretty smooth, no alcohol punch at all.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pretty some power, thick structure. Fruity, orange, a bit vegetal, citrus. Herbal notes, and again a bit sour edge underneath.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pretty smooth now, sweet and fruity, citrus, orange. Again this sour edge, medium long finish.

    ... old school These whisky notes are like a relief after all those years of sherry bombs.
    • Nose
      92 92
      deep with oak, juicy orange, strawberry and plum jam, shortbread biscuits covered with chocolate.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Otherwise chocolate liqueur, salt with caramel and latte macchiato with biscuit.
    • Finish
      93 93
      elegant and warm, perfect with chocolate and coffee.

    Bought for € 170 in March 2021. The filling is a bit one-dimensional and in my opinion not quite worth the money.

    He lacks a lot to the class of the 88 and 89 SV CSCs of the previous years.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Here the classic turret: fine, clear ex BC notes with subtle fruit and a slight freshness. Grapes, lychee, mint. The alcohol is very well integrated, and deep breaths are also possible.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Get started like the fire brigade. But this is not the alcohol that maltreats the tongue, but barrel flavoring. For me, at least at first sip, borderline. In addition, hay, alpine herb meadow and some fresh bread dough, which later disappears.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium-length and warming, this is where the sweet, creamy texture you had hoped for finally comes into play. Hay, forest honey. Fruits rather nil

  16. ctu scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Age doesn't felt so much, but it's refined, unique and fresh.
    • Nose
      Floral. Varnished wood, honey, mojito and melon.
    • Taste
      Sophisticated. Oak, vanilla, honey, caramel, lemonade and apricot.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, oaky, spicy.

  17. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant, refreshing and playful piercing, on sensations - more than 20 years you will not give, it reminds a mix of Springbank and Klineish - a pleasant product.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, treated wood, dusty grassy notes, wildflowers, pollen, propolis, lemon, orange, a little tropical fruits, lemonade, a little fat and oil tones, mineral tones - stone crumbs, mineral water with orange juice, melon, papaya .
    • Taste
      Saturated, mineral, lemonade and oak, a little pepper, lemon zest, a little dried apricots, ginger in sugar, lemon candied fruits.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, fresh and invigorating, orange peel, herbs, a little compote of dried fruits, light spicy oak notes.

  18. Malinois scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Quick note:

    Soft dry/light sweet smell as expected from a bourbon cask.

    The age shows in the palate: soft, silky mouth coating: really lays a little soft film over the teeth. Fruity with a bit of wood influences: amandels.

    The aftertaste starts a bit fresher as the taste, but in an old way. Shows it maturation again with sweeter and more amandel-like tastes. It also leaves again that mouth coating/silky feeling with that teeth covering soft film. 

    Very cask driven, but beautiful!
