    I have to check out some Miltonduffs.
    • Nose
      Very nice flowery freshness. In fact the best flowery note i've had. You could almost call it good perfume. Small hints of Grappa. Green apples. Very slightly oaky. White grapes.  Some Marzipan. Amazing nose for such a young Whisky.
    • Taste
      Spirity, eau de vie-ish. Super fresh. Lots of menthol. Banana, a bag of Haribos. Peach liqueur and an almost overwhelming sweetness (in a very good way). Of course it has the simplicity of youth, but this is the best very young whisky that i have had.
    • Finish
      Medium. Still fresh, slightly peppery and quite liqueurish.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Young, but very good. The barrel delivered some really nice flavors to the spirit that is already very solid.
    • Nose
      Soft and sweet, but with an alcoholic nose prickle. It's creamy and fruity. Vanilla, sawdust, honey, pineapple, banana, cherries, creamy pastry (make that Apfelstrudel),  and cut grass. Later, some soft and sweet spices complement this wonderful nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet, almost syrup-like, on sweet cherry, pineapple, vanilla cream, again Apfelstrudel (but then with cinnamon), and a hint of grass. 
    • Finish
      Moderate, staying on the sweet side, almost not getting bitter at all. Cherry brandy, a little acid touch of pineapple, cream, and as mentioned, only a little pepper.

    Some quick notes I jotted down enjoying this dram...

    Nose is soft & sweet, smells a lot older.
    Taste is soft & sweet too, with a mild tingling, body is just right for this style.
    Finish, nothing wrong here except that it's a bit short, but hey... It's 9 years old!

    I liked this dram, the "music" played was good, I only like the volume a bit louder... but that's me I think... not the dram ;-).

    Truly a whisky that you immediately begin to sniff again after sip on your glass.
    • Nose
      What a wonderful aroma of apple, cake batter with cinnamon and redfruit. All coming gently together entering your nose. It smells much older than a 9 year old whisky.
    • Taste
      Nice malty , sweet cherries and wood and more wood. The taste starts strong, the betrayal of his young age for me.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. It is what you can use in a non- starting spring. Ad no water, oddly enough the complexity of the fragrance perish ( something I not had expected).

  7. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    What a nose: apples, garden fruits, cake dough. Cinnamon, salt, pepper. without the pepper, I would have estimated on the nose to about 25 years. extremely round. palate: sweet and malty. Cherries. Wood. more and more wood. quite robust in the beginning. You only realize that after 9 years. long finish. warms up nicely. he does not get better with water. Vanilla and more wood come through. the nose develops, the palate grows rougher and drier. He does not like water. destroys the finish.

    SMWS Tasting notes

    We were transported to the best bakery in the world with homely aromas; we did not want to carry on but  we did. What was in the ovine mum's kitchen?- Cinnamon apples muffins, apple strudel, gooey cherry pie, jammy dodgers and fruit tarts. On the palate the fruity notes carried on with an alcoholic kick; black forest gateau made with fresh cream, Morello cherries and plenty of kirsch as well as the bottom of a pitcher of sangria. With a drop water creamy vanilla notes appeared and we got an apple caramel cinnamon cake with Bourbon vanilla bean custard.
