  2. PeterCr scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Real good balance and nice consistency between nose and taste. Casks are there in the woody tones. All very subtle but a real nice 12yo expression in view!

    Balance score = 23/25

    Total score = 90 pts
    • Nose
      Medium impact nose, fruity (apple, melon), honey, hint of vanilla in the end.

      Nose score = 21/25
    • Taste
      Thick tears, full bodied. Nice smooth mouthfeel, fruity (banana, melon, pear) followed by little spicyness (vanilla) and oak. Some honey.

      Taste score = 24/25
    • Finish
      Nice long finish, starting with some spicyness (maybe due to higher abv.) then some woody notes (tannines) followed by sweetness (honey, icing sugar).

      Finish score = 22/25
