  1. Koalafant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Completely convincing in the nose, this malt on the palate was somewhat oaky and less complex. Strong but unobtrusive.
    • Nose
      Strong but unobtrusive, sweet with lots of vanilla and wholegrain biscuits. Honey ... later some cinnamon. Very pleasant and balanced.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied and creamy on the palate with a distinct oak note and pleasant bitterness.
    • Finish
      Long to medium long and round with a slight bitterness. Warming ... burns easily in the throat.

  4. peatbogger scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    • Nose
      very fresh, immediate rasberry, green apples, fresh cut grass, a little vanilla and mild oak, very subtle sherry, a little nutty background with almonds
    • Taste
      rasberries still present, almonds comes forth more in the form of marzipan, sweet, mild spice
    • Finish
      drying with the spice more prominent, nutty (more almonds) caramel,
