  6. Andytka3 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    N- Admirable strength at 46% for a core releases after tasting too many
    of the standard 40%-ers, and the different are obvious and filled with
    qualities. Very farm-y with earth and peculiar peat-polished notes,
    along pomelo, toffee and green grass, slightly sharp zesty citrus,
    lime-y, fragrant wood. Love the sustaining crispness that remains throughout. Fresh and broad. Rusty mineral notes at the tails. P- Peach, sourish honey, spicy and polished wood. Charred notes and
    subtle earths, some sweet peat. Good body, firm and well structure. F- Long, rich and complex, elegantly spicy with refine spirit
    aftertaste. A 'generous' entry level bottling, excellent quality for the
    value.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

  7. rottendon scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Well, that's young, I would say. The barrels were certainly not bad, but that does not tear it out.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Really interesting, even the second blind tasting, where he does not convince me. Last time he had gotten 79 points, this time it was only 75, on average 77. Granted, this time it was the seventh malt in the series, not the very best condition, but he just can not really like me.

    The lax impression of the first time has also confirmed by the way, I have typed here again to 40%.
    • Nose
      Right typical bourbon notes immediately, yellow fruit in honey, the alcohol is well integrated. Clean, round, without surprises. Heated the fruits disappear, what remains are caramel and honey. On the second try a light but clear, salty sweat note and tons of malt, very grainy, rather little fruit and sweetness.
    • Taste
      Fairly sweet, honey, gruff alcohol, bitter notes at the end, metallic crackling. The second time less sweet, a little more mellow, still young.
    • Finish
      The sweetness goes, bitterness stays a bit longer, medium.
