  2. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Precisely crafted, immaculately constructed, but sadly also way overpriced. For that money, I'd rather get the 21-year-old. Or two bottles of the 15-year-old. Or two bottles of the 13-year-old "Reawakening". You get the idea.

    A moment for aeration is absolutely necessary for its values to open up more. Without it, whisky is not very encouraging for me. A drop of water makes a much better impression. The bitterness goes away, there is a sugar-like sweetness, and the fruitiness increases. The finish is just chocolate without any pepper notes. Nice warming at the end.

    Honey, sweet toothpaste, honey flowers, apple. After tasting candies, cream appear. Finish is light with sinking taste.

  8. diamond2000 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: light, honey-floral, dry grain, vanilla, wild flowers, freshness, herbal motifs, hay, sweet pastries, cookies, fruits, peaches, nectarines, light notes of milk caramel and milk chocolate, there is also minerality. Very pleasant and delicate flavor, albeit not overcomplex, but with perfectly matched components to each other.

    Taste: honey-sweet, spices, honeycombs, malt sweetness, shortbread biscuits, delicately, with hints of herbs, ginger and citrus peel.

    Finish: outgoing sweetness, herbal tea, a little zest and wood, medium length.

  9. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: Light and chalky dry, almost Fino dry
    T: A waxy, astringent, barely spirit with a complex bitter-sour. Water brings out the fruits.
    F: ,..... more travel, more barley 
    C: Subtle-complex, distillate-led nicely matured malt. The best of the bunch for me, but there’s not a great deal in it.
