  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Minty & eucalyptus upfront. Soft and lightly pungent. Let the dram
    breath in the glass for a while, hay and wet tree branches emerged,

    Palate:- A shock. Don't taste how it smell like. Very
    astringent and bold. Non spicy but very hot, mouthfull with gingery
    spice, the heats building up and up. Eye watering stuff.

    Finish:- Smooth and long finish. Dry and hot throughout, complex. A touch floral.

  3. mmaclean scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    "A cracking dram from the great man, Jim McEwan. Fresh and subtle, with

    vanilla flavours from the Bourbon casks, fresh exotic fruit and a

    well-rounded maltiness."

  4. mmaclean scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A replacement to the original 10 year old, which is now off the market. A

    clean, straightforward dram with a lightness and freshness which is

    very inviting. Notes of vanilla cream, light caramel, tropical fruit

    (coconut, pineapple), clementine, pear, and a hint of currant.

    Appetizing, subtly briny finish.
