  1. rottendon scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A little too young but well balanced, completely uncomplicated beginner dram, whose price is probably a bit too high. Very interchangeable, you would not think blindly at Glendronach. Shoemaker stick to your last? Rather not, he will surely find his lover, who will probably not come from the majority of the camp of the Distillery fans, and thus he would have fulfilled his task for the marketers already. For my part: Nice to have tried him, he does not come to my shelf.
    • Nose
      Fresh fruity, pears and limes, little smoke, slightly phenolic, grain and malt, vanilla. After a little longer caramel and less fruit notes. The phenolic in the smoke has disappeared, actually all the smoke is almost completely suppressed. When heated, a few sherry tunes actually come in, but only very discreetly. Overall, he looks very sweet now. A distinct marshmallow note with delicate acidity now dominates. The alcohol tickles clearly in the nose.
    • Taste
      Not as sweet as the nose can expect, light honey, a slight harshness and grassy notes dominate, overall very tasty. Towards the rear, a not unpleasant bitterness develops, which however is slightly metallic.
    • Finish
      The finish is more on the short side, only a touch of ash remains a little longer on the tongue.

  5. Achany scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A lot of bourbon cask, little to no sherry. Vanilla, some green fruits, a lot of spices, oak. Peat is clearly visible and well integrated. Does make a young impression, finish rahter short. A nice slightly peated dram, easy to drink

    • Nose
      apart, show some fruit with peat. Little simple set up, well balanced. Apart is the right word. Zilt.
    • Taste
      apart, nice though. Very strong though
    • Finish
      nice, simple. There is no development. Do not find the peat and sherry content high, it is tasty but lacks development.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not so bad, but not great, I would like to have seen with at least 14Y something.
    • Nose
      Cold campfire, alcohol, bacon, pineapple, gum, vinegar, vanilla
    • Taste
      Grapes, licorice, some metal, roasted aromas, BBQ, cinnamon, honey, heather
    • Finish
      For a long time through the smoke that remains in the throat, with a few herbs

  10. domani scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    He is solid and drinkable without appearing youthful or immature. The smoke is slightly put on so it is difficult for me to classify it in terms of character. In the price certainly too high up settled - 26.02.2017
    • Nose
      The smoke that flows towards you looks a bit artificial and set, but slightly maritime it is, vanilla, apple, pear, lemongrass, overall a light and carefree nose
    • Taste
      Sweet-tart, malt sweetness, maybe a little vanilla comes to light, but otherwise there is little sweetness, in the aroma is only minimal smoke felt, little to hardly spice
    • Finish
      Short
