  2. Eclectic Scotchist scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Light-bodied. A really interesting and a bit challenging dram, with a combination of intense fruitiness and a peculiar but intriguing note of slightly decayed hay that is present from nose to finish. But I can dig 'challenging' :)

    Tasted blind as the 19th whisky in my 2016 whisky advent calendar.
    • Nose
      Concentrated fresh pear (a real fruit-bomb this one), pear ice cream, some mildly smoked citrus in the background, cream, vanilla, some leathery strawberry jam (!), zesty spices, earthy liquorice and a really peculiar but interesting note reminiscent of slightly decaying hay (!).
    • Taste
      Pear, tobacco, vanilla, candle wax, pepper, liquorice, mellow oak, cream, slightly decayed hay (!).
    • Finish
      Short to medium in length - lots of fruit, some candle wax, a bit of smoke, earthy, vanilla, mellow oak, white pepper and nuts, plus some slightly decayed hay (!).

  3. Sb17sw scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Loads of nose. Powerful, sweet and juicy.

    Massive, oily taste. Fruits and cherries.

    Short finish.

  4. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: delicious, juicy, peach, vanilla, coconut, caramel, subtle oak, slight alcoholic pungency, looks older than it is Taste: very sweet, full-bodied, slightly oak and slightly hot Finish: medium, caramel, oak and some fruit With water: This is a swimmer who can tolerate very well water, then becomes much rounder and smarter - 87 points
