  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    One of these bottlings that are not baaaad, but meh... rather forgetable and not exiting at all. Buy for around 60 EUR if you must but be aware that this 18 is not on the forefront of what 18 yo whiskies are capable of... ;-)

    —- blind tasting —-

    I estimated this whisky 14 years old and would have given it two more points. For 18 years he's really not very impressive.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Herbs, ash, citrus, some fresh fruit behind. Very special.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Oily, soft, honey, then the ashes, wood flavor, becoming slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Not very long, creamy, fruity and sweet, coffee, a hint of ash and wood spice.

  7. Malthead19 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    - a good single malt but a bit disappointing for the age

    - would have expected a bit more overall
    • Nose
      fresh, fruity, floral, grapefruit, green apple, honey,
    • Taste
      spicy beginning, oak, strong (old) wood aroma, light bitter substances
    • Finish
      short mild finish;
      medium-length oak-heavy finish

      84 84
      light, mild, floral, tangerine, lime, citrus, caramel, vanilla, trace oak;

  9. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      85 85
      Surprisingly salty, quite a fair bit of coastal notes, from a triple distilled Lowland distillery. Quite oaky, kind of perfumy, with some soft fruitiness.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Salty arrival, with hints of bitter oak. The bitterness gets stronger over time, and pretty hot too on the tongue.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Faint saltiness, very bitter tea/coffee.
