  1. yggr scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Everything screams "old" in this whisky. Extremely good integrated alcohol, fruitiness, oak flavor.
    I'm typing before dissolution:
    48-50% vol. Speysider
    Fino
    31-35 years
    After dissolution remains to be stated: very tasty fruit bomb. I sign the floral note and a slight scent of perfume, orange tic-tac anyway ... And I would have made much more money loose than he tasted.
    • Nose

      Notes from a blind tasting:
      And that should still be whisky? Not the hint of alcohol in the nose. But a lot of bright, ripe fruits, especially solid orange. Mango, papaya. Even a bit banana. First, everything says 35+ years to me ... without, of course, to know especially many such bottlings. Every now and then a small mint leaf flashes on the fruit salad.
    • Taste
      Immediately a tingle on the tongue. Beautiful oak, you can chew forever. Vanilla, meadow herbs, also has something buttery ... the fruity notes remain in the background.
    • Finish
      Nice finish. Astringent, again very sweet with vanilla, honey, hay. Remains long and sticky in the mouth ... but has more power than the nose pretends one.

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Lime with peel, orange, grapefruit, a hint of coconut, vanilla, soft round wood flavors, it takes a little more time in the glass so he loses its initial Spritnote, then it is gone Taste: sweet and sour fruity oranges with some mint (oranges TicTac), vanilla with delicate, distant notes of wood, with the second sip of the wood notes are stronger, but the fruit explodes - intense mango, oranges and tangerines fill the mouth, multi-layered delicious invite them after a medium long finish, take another sip. Conclusion : So this is a pure Bourbon keg wow - blind I would never have typed, extremely fruity, very tasty, the second tasting he liked me much better than the first, vllt he needed some air.

  5. Astrid scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The alcohol is not well integrated in places, and the fruit basket cannot compensate for this either.
    • Nose
      87 87
      fruity vanilla and aromatic oak, some warm caramel and butter cake with a touch of malt, then it gets really fruity with plum jam, oranges and limes, dates, desiccated coconut, apricots, melon, fine wood dust and light roasted aromas in the air, hints of white chocolate and honey
    • Taste
      83 83
      not quite as fruity, oily, earthy and spicy elements get stage time, grapefruit and prunes, pepper and cardamom, a little mint, the oak is nice and velvety and oily and unfortunately also has a dull side, banana, coconut and blanched almonds, barley malt and light Bitterness, creamy, vanilla with a hint of caramel, orange and honey
    • Finish
      82 82
      oily, coconut, dry grass, vanilla, copper, oak wood thinly coated with dark chocolate, orange, walnut and mango on the back

  6. wako93 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Crazy nose (see other notes: orange, fruit cocktail) On the palate it was a little too woody for me. A no-brainer at the issue price

  8. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really delicious malt from the bourbon barrel. In the nose a real fruit bomb. That's fun.
    • Nose
      The full fruit drone. Tangerine. Mirabelle. Mango. Lychee. Honey melon Maybe some kiwi. From time to time, the spice of the oak is constantly coming through. The whole thing is carried by a pleasant vanilla.
    • Taste
      Less fruity in the mouth than in the nose. First some caramel. Now the power of the oak alternates with the fruit. Everything works well interwoven. Something polish comes through too. Pepper.
    • Finish
      Blood orange. Wet wood. Milk chocolate

  9. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    with water: a little sweeter and a lot more herbs, also some mint and white pepper shows up. I would drink it rather without water

    Conclusion: Really delicious fruit bomb that you have to give some time
    • Nose
      87 87
      very fruity, orange, oak shavings, pear, peach, light herbaceous notes, vanilla, honey, lightly pungent (but it dissipates after a while), some coconut flavors
    • Taste
      88 88
      great onset, cremic, coconut, lots of fruit (orange, peach, mango, passion fruit) a bit of wood, here the alcohol is better integrated, caramel and honey
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, also here again many fruits, in addition the now stronger oak, which brings also some herbal notes, coconut and vanilla, in the back some perfume, the oak echoes for a long time, without becoming bitter
