4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very finely chiselled and consistent in the nose and on the palate, yet spicy enough,
    without being slack, with delicious pastry notes and (of course) old-school profile.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Apricot and marzipan croissants, grandmother's old chest of drawers aka OBF, some hemp rope, then especially delicate but intensely fragrant honey notes, speculoos batter, vanilla croissants - yummy!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Gentle, with a light rum pot-like note of vanilla, warm croissant with Norman butter, silky, slightly oily, and at the same time subtle but clearly inspiring tropical fruits in the background as well as cinnamon and cardamom (if you take a bigger sip and chew properly) and spicy, creamy honey .
      And then the highlight: freshly squeezed sugar cane juice (anyone who has tried this before knows how delicious it is).
    • Finish
      88 88
      The pastry and spice notes remain for quite a while, less spectacular than harmoniously ending in major - the sample was just on the piano;)

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Consistently high quality blended malt, little to complain about, the nose particularly stood out.
    • Nose
      Really strange notes, initially great sweetness in the nose that reminds you of the good part of Glenfarclas in it, dried fruits, super nice marzipan, pistachio, pear sauce, quince, vanilla, full of honey, honeydew melon, white chocolate, cardamom, banana jellies
    • Taste
      Quince jelly, marzipan, pear, papaya, cocoa, full of honey, light raisins, super round oak and malt without any edge, camphor
    • Finish
      Apple peel, grapes, honey, liquorice, tick rose water, medium length

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      89 89
      Apple, apricot, plum, almond, caramel and cloth. Something that reminds me of christmas in my youth, can't exactly pinpoint what it is.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Furniture polish, apple, apricot, leather, caramel, cocoa and candle.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Cocoa, plum, apple, peach and candle.
