  6. Moses scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A whisky with a very strong character with all the properties that one could wish for at a tasting. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but to discover something of everything. One of the best among the 15s.
    • Nose
      Roasted aromas over salted nuts with grassy floral notes with a hint of mint. A very balanced vanilla nose and slowly fading into citrus notes. Very fine.
    • Taste
      A very strong mouthfeel. The pepper plays the main role and distributes sweet malty notes. At the same time it keeps what the nose promises with a floral feeling.
    • Finish
      Medium to long and quite peppery, very pleasant.

    Another Bourboncask Speysider that does everything right, but is so one-dimensional citrusy, that I would be the second Dram too boring - yes, the malt is nothing.
    • Nose
      yellow apple, pear, sweet vanilla sauce, freshly peeled green rind, sweet roasted cereal with a touch of popcorn, wood dust, bay leaf, a touch of juniper fresh from the bush, freshly cut grass, beautiful floral with hints of nectar
    • Taste
      mild and sweet, slightly syrupy, citrusy, slightly sourish, citrus oil and bitterness of lime peel, quite creamy with vanilla and delicate oak, alternating with each other when chewing
    • Finish
      it citrus citrus and delicate barrel spice in the mouth, this is also maintained for a long time, in the course of the departure, he is briefly a little peppery and then dry and goes into warming freshness / coolness (mint). stays good and shows no weaknesses

    Another sunday morning breakfast tipple? Remind me a lot of AnCnoc, but with a little more spice at the finish.

    Empty glass have a deliciouse smell of Daim bar and almond cake.
    • Nose
      Extremely fresh and fruity. Lots of dandelions. Sweet citrus, yellow apple, mango and pear sirup.
    • Taste
      Sweet, but not as sweet as the nose. Of the fruits I find the mango to shine through. Goes nutty about half way. Mildly spicy.
    • Finish
      Nutty, spicy, with sweet cinnamon.
