  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Oogadal is completely right. This grain whisky needs time to reveal all its flavors. Not an easy dram with in my view unusual nose and palate. It has quite some depth and complexity though. Present for my lovely wife who can really appreciate older grain whisky's. I'm blessed!
    • Nose
      Interesting nose with lots of floral notes of geraniums and freesias. Laurel-leaves, cut grass, and lavender. Nettle as well. Touch of sandal wood later on. The usual grain characteristics of glue, pencil shavings and sawdust are there, but more on the background and in a very subtle way.
    • Taste
      Now more on delicate fruity sweetness. I got apple-mint, juicy conference pears and white grapes. Followed with hints of lemon zest and orange peel. Also notes of acacia honey and touch of vanilla. Later on some roasted almonds. This grain whisky has a pleasant oily and silky mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Medium long. White pepper. A little clove. Liquorice. Pine at the and. Complex and well balanced grain.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Lemon, glue, orange, vanilla, pastry and spice. Water releases a spicy oak influence, even like virgin oak, and a little clay.
    • Taste
      Lemon, spice, orange, vanilla and caramel. The addition of water makes it sweeter, but also adds that same clay note.
    • Finish
      Lemon, vanilla sugar, orange and caramel.

    He needs his time in the glass. After that he has a great nose. Taste and finish are in no way inferior. Here is the total package including the price (March 2016 about 80 €)
    • Nose
      Raisins, light tar and light sulfur, somehow the smell reminds me of Sauerbraten, vanilla, slightly salty
    • Taste
      oily, sweet vanilla, slightly peppery, again raisins, spicy and again light tar and light sulfur
    • Finish
      medium length, oak, sweetness, again oily and slightly salty, slight sherry influence
