  1. Wiz scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    The fruit comes afterwards. Is already a lot of wood and bitterness here. He is not bad, but also no revelation. He is now open for two months .... and unfortunately has not changed yet. Somehow I do not get warm with the woodfinishes from Benriach and Arran.
    • Nose
      : First, the bourbon barrel comes to meet me. Slight adhesive note. Red fruits ... raspberry cherry. Then the oak hits. Spicy herbs. Then come the vain notes, the port. After 15 minutes, it becomes fruity.
    • Taste
      Sweet, milk chocolate. Some nut. Again the red fruits. Always getting drier. Oak. The bitterness of the tannins is clearly noticeable. Then herbs again.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Funny .... instead of port, I'm now more sherry in the mouth. Overripe fruits.
