  1. hafssol scored this whisky 65 points Member Senior

    Warm at taste, even if I expected more from a 15 years "richly matured". Good, but a bit flat ending.

  8. MrRancho scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Everything is very balanced, nothing dominates. This changes the flavors and the dram is constantly interresting.
    • Nose
      Rose marzipan, papaya, mango, some orange blossom, some glue.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, vanilla, wood, honey, some red apple.
    • Finish
      Medium long, fruity, in the end a bit salty.

    Nose and taste did not convince. Due to the departure he will surely have his age, about 43%. Guess something like Glenlivet
    • Nose
      Blind tasting!
      Vanilla, apples, tangerines, very fruity but not very complex, only later will nougar and malt get through
    • Taste
      silky and soft, somehow a little bit of everything but nothing stands out
    • Finish
      Age is revealed here. Oak and candy sugar, a few herbs
