ColdAesthetics gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Ananas, heller Honig, Cornflakes, Heidwiese, Sternfrucht, grüner Apfel, Vanille und helles Toffee, junge Eiche, Papaya leicht

Taste

Heller Kräuterhonig, Cornflakes, schöne weiße Schokolade, junge Eichenchips, Toffee viel und Vanille, Zimt, Muskat und etwas weißer Pfeffer, Puderzucker, Papaya und Sternfrucht, trockene Ananaschips, helles Malz

Finish

Helles Malz, eher kurz bis mittellang, heller Honig, Thymian, Zimt, Eiche, Ananaschips

Comments

Durchaus nett trinkbarer, junger Mac, hat halt eher was von reinem Bourbonfass, das junge Alter merkt man, aber nicht nur im negativen Sinne, nette Mischung aus Noten zwischen Frucht, Würze und Malz.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Leicht süßliches Honigaroma, Getreide, Haferflocken, exotische  Früchte, Sternfrucht, frisch aufgeschnittene Ananas, Birne, grüner Apfel Honig

Taste

Schön süß und weich, fruchtig, etwas Ingwer, auf Würfelzucker geträufelte Medizin, Waldhonig, wenig Würze 

Finish

Kurz

Comments

Der Whisky ist schön weich und leicht mit einer wenn auch nur leichten aber dafür angenehmen Süße. Im Aroma konnte man eine nicht näher definierbare parfümierte Note erkennen die aber nicht störend oder gar aufdringlich ist. Ein junger aber aber dennoch solider Whisky - 18.11.2017

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

On commence avec une amertume un peu envahissante apporté par le bois et le végétal bien marqué. Au fur est à mesure de l'ouverture il gagne en gourmandise et s'engraisse agréablement. Des notes fruitées arrivent puis une certaine fraicheur. Et c'est tout pour moi

Taste

Facile à garder, la texture est assez fluide. On attaque avec de la vanille. Malt, miel, fruits rouges et chocolat au lait. Les goûts s'enchaînent bien. Une amertume rappelant le nez vient en fin de bouche rend le dram forcément astringent.

Finish

Courte sur les fruits, le bois/épices et l'amertume


Comments

Un whisky somme toute équilibré, bien fait, mais peu complexe, aucune originalité et un poil trop jeune

Yes, I'm here, all the way up here - in the boardroom above the G&M shop in Elgin, for a bespoke tasting. After a simple yet welcomed lunch, expectations were high for five drams to follow [starting with a Glen Spey WB]. Hopefully it'll be a high five.


N: Creamy wetsuits with some tamarind and mild [no heat] cholula.

T: Orange-chocolatey sherry - many woods [trees/casks] and many alcohols. There's lots of sherry [types] that seem to disguise the situation.

F: Sweet-bitter-sour,... all-sorts. Undesirable burnt news at the end.

C: What is the Speymalt remit? Could be a way of using up what's left over in various warehouses. Feels like the sherry is masking a lot as so often it does, and very nicely too. Certainly a masterclass in blending and I like the result, but I'm not sure it's all that great a malt - although the best so far today :/ Last chance for something memorable,…. with a young, peated Bunna :/ WB.

Easy to drink whisky which brings a lot of sweetness but no bitterness and is an "easy to drink" dram which is definitely worth its money (40€ 04/2016)
