    A classic!

  5. saintjimmy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Floral sweetness. I don't detect as much smoke as in the 12YO. Lovely fresh and fruity. Lemongrass and even dill
    • Taste
      very fresh and fruity with a distinctive accent of spices. Fresh star anise. Even a small hint of yoghurt. Sounds like curry!
    • Finish
      oily, fairly greasy. Light notes of toasted oak

  6. mmaclean scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A new expression due out in March, positioned between the 12 and 18 year

    old versions. A fresh and enormously drinkable whisky; very silky, with

    honeyed malt, delicate citrus and berry fruit, floral notes (heather

    and lavender), and a hint of cocoa and sea spray.
