  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    An old-fashioned dram that suffers a little from the 40% and is not entirely without faults. Nice to have had something like that in my glass again.
    • Nose
      Smells quite light, minimally dusty, it needs a little, then some malt, yellow fruit, clearly no blend, in my opinion, a little flowery, perfumed, light oak, a hint of smoke, overall very pleasant, also pleasantly old-fashioned but already a lot delicate plant.
    • Taste
      light, almost too light, but very harmonious, aroma-technically fuller than the nose suggests. Yellow fruit, light smoke, a little artificial.
    • Finish
      warm and a little bitter, the oak shows up again here, the yellow fruit and also the slightly artificial note, something like "plastic bowl aroma".

  3. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: Toasted malt, a lot of spice, some shoe polish and wood polish. A nice sweetness develops, as well as fruity notes such as pears, bananas, but also cotton candy and honey. Fine roasted aromas over time, floral tones and leather.

    Mouth: Fairly sweet, vanilla, sugary and with good strength. Again roasted cereals, ripe bananas and apricots, heather honey, waxy and with a slightly woody touch. Fine bitter notes over time.

    Finish: medium length, still rather sweet, but also with slightly earthy and floral impressions.
