  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very pleasant, perfectly revealed in the process of tasting whisky, very diverse, bright, rich, harmoniously combining sweet honey and berry, spicy woody and industrial beginnings.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, cut grass, green apples, freshly planed boards, rhubarb, light mineral shades - wet stones, raw tin; vanilla, sweet and sour berry tones - red currant, cranberry;
    • Taste
      Soft, rich, oak, tart mineral tones, very bright and dense; some industrial-metal notes, sweet creamy undertones, cocoa, leather goods, tobacco leaf, sweet honey-herbal motifs, the taste is surprisingly full-bodied and varied, and this is after the aroma, which was also quite good.
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, continuation of the taste in general, light industrial-mineral shades with spicy oak, honey sweetness, leather and tobacco leaf.

  2. DGV scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    An adult Nevis, but at barrel speeds, of course, cannot disappoint! A pleasant combination of berry-confectionery tones in a mineral frame, fastened with a high degree, quickly penetrate the receptors and remind of themselves with an enveloping finish for a long time. I also note that most likely the barrels were refilled, this is evidenced by the relatively light color of the drink and the fact that wine shades sound very delicate in it, I would even say muffled. A small fly in the ointment in all this was the presence of a certain “roughness” (excessive causticity) in taste, but perhaps it just seemed at the time of tasting.
    • Nose
      Busy but calm. Rosehip, pomegranate, shortbread, dry cocoa, marmalade, light mineral shades - stone, metal.
    • Taste
      Raspberry jam, dry herbs, metal, oak.
    • Finish
      Raspberry jam, dry herbs, metal, oak.
