  1. SilentStill scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very malty malt, which surprises on the palate with an interesting mixture and also quite clearly accentuated in the nose therefore comes.
    • Nose
      nice malty with fruity undertones, in between there is always a good supply of nut flavors, strong nose, not stingy ... finally some hay.
    • Taste
      On the palate, the nose is confirmed again, in addition to a slightly spicy or spicy sweetness, which is also reminiscent of white pepper.
    • Finish
      rather dry and with a reasonably decent length, the malt is also quite dominant here.

  3. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A pretty interesting drop, just different.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet, strangely enough, a lot of old bottle flavor and a hint of plum liqueur or at least a fruity note.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Intense orange, sweetened blood oranges, and some Cointreau. Slightly oily.
      Not only sweet, but also gooseberry tart, but well balanced overall.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Wood oils, furniture wax with orange flavor.

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very good whisky and a positive surprise.
    • Nose
      Warming. I am a little bit surprised, because my first impression is: This one is a little peaty. After a minute or so it becomes fruitier (apples, pears, orange blossoms) and vanilla notes are coming up. Clean and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Warming and absolutely tasty. Lovely high quality caramel with hazelnut liqueur. Additional notes of orange cake, white pepper and cereals.
    • Finish
      Long, remaining pleasant on hazelnut liqueur, caramel and pepper - a little liquorice is coming up in addition.
