  4. schengel10 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Great malt for a great price.

    [Color] amber;
    • Nose
      subtle nose: fine sherry and clearly citrus fruits;
    • Taste
      first softer, then explosive fruity onset, grapefruit, sherry, dark fruits, chocolate, nuts, spices, lots of oak;
    • Finish
      medium; in the end a lot of oak, becoming dry;

  5. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    It has the same DNA as the 15-year-old, yet is very different. I like them equally though.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity, with peaches, apple sauce and pear skin. Good balance and maturity. Hints of puff pastry and icing sugar as well. Just a tad floral.
    • Taste
      The sweetness certainly makes an encore, in the way of sultanas and pralines. A whiff of cherry syrup as well, loads of caramel and just a tinge of charred oak.
    • Finish
      Soft spices, honey. Medium in length.
