  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The nose made me a little scared, but the taste makes up for everything, an ingenious Bourbon barrel bomber, this exotic is always a great change.
    • Nose
      Ui, first pretty oldschool bourbon-alcoholic, extreme vanilla and toffee overlay a lot, then some banana ice cream, rice pudding, cherry soaked in alcohol, marzipan chocolates filled with brandy, light apricot
    • Taste
      Wow, great, full of appetite, some exotic with mango, passion fruit juice, dragon fruit, but also pear, green and red apple, of course, a ton of custard and caramel, bright young honey with a few herbs such as thyme, but also cinnamon, nutmeg, something white pepper, a touch of licorice bitterness and beautiful bourbon oak that goes into it
    • Finish
      Dried mango with white pepper, pear, bourbon oak and malt, medium to long, dry and fruity

    Yeah, that's how I imagine a bourbon barrel aged old malt. It's not big with frills or blingbling. He goes nicely forward in the oldie style. Delicious Stöffchen. Really good.
    • Nose
      Lemon and vanilla; fresh hay; very floral; slight adhesive note; a little bit of muff comes with the time; sweet mandarins and marzipan chocolates
    • Taste
      Nice creamy; now comes the slightly bitter oak; again vanilla; a few spices are also there with light apples; a light, pleasant tingle
    • Finish
      Medium; Apples and nougat; again with vanilla and the floral notes from the nose; nice peppery on the go; At the end, the oak pushes briefly after

    Conclusion: 88/100 points - "nice daily dram". The Speysider by Tom is a really surprising whisky, the nice fruity nose like, the intense aromas in the mouth but very surprising. Tasty, quite complex in the field of fruits. With € 110 a bit too high, but are at least 20 years .. So then a shoe out of it.

    • Nose
      sweet, cereal, corn, nail polish remover, banana, orange peel, some cherry with vanilla sauce
    • Taste
      extremely intense notes of overripe fruits, banana, slightly rotten mango, vanilla
    • Finish
      long, slightly tart finish with lots of orange peel and some licorice
