  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    a young inconsequential malt that lacks depth
    • Nose
      Despite nearly drinking strength quite spicy and alcoholic, behind it dark chocolate and raisins, honey
    • Taste
      Chocolate, fermented grape juice, slightly sulphurous sherry, very sweet
    • Finish
      sweet, short, behind the back wood comes through despite the small age already wood

  3. Lorion scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    No miss notes, round and harmonious, but not so interesting or unique. Just a round, delicious guy! 77 points.
    • Nose
      Sherry fruit compote. Pears, plums, blackberries, red apple and oak! The sherry's own aroma is only occasionally tender. The wonderful blend of wood and fruit together with sweetness is harmonious and round. After a bit of warmth and time, herbs are in the nose. The oak always comes back to the foreground.
    • Taste
      Seasoning in the first place, then the sugared fruits come. An intense powerful mouthfeel with lots of fruit and sweetness! The oak provides spice, no bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium long, spicy and rather dry. It leaves an apple-cinnamon seasoning back.

    The musty nose is reminiscent of slightly fermented fruits.
    This impression then continues in the mouth, musty, young, copper, sprittig - bahhh. A real exit, all other bottling are good to very good. This bottling is however under all sow!

  5. Mannheimer scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    The young age is actually only slightly felt in the taste, but for his young age very good and balanced, fruit compote and restrained sherry.
    Successful, fits wonderfully in summer evenings at tropical temperatures!
    • Nose
      Light sherry is worthy of its name: summer fruits! Apricots, peaches, nectarines and clementines. Oak discreetly in the background. Very light yet very fragrant and fruity, sherry not intrusive. After opening you will get a hint of wood smoke.
    • Taste
      Again very fruity with all the fruits mentioned above plus juicy pears. Fruit basket in the glass, nice! In the aftermath he lets his age betray something, you can feel a slight youth, which is partially covered in sherry. In the end you have spices and gray pepper.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly spicy and peppery, summer fruits, long and dry.

    He was disappointing for me as well. Over time, he got a little better. But he was not worth his money

  7. Dramned! scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The hitherto weakest in the Seasons series, can not afford the very best of its predecessor Bunnahabhain in the least! For me a disappointment.

  9. Kalle208 scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    The nose is better than the taste
    • Nose
      Alcohol is well integrated, milk coffee, caramel, honey, is heavy in the glass, sherry, association of overripe banana
    • Taste
      strong onset, light sweetness that disappears quickly, then chilli / pepper, light dryness and spice
    • Finish
      relatively short

  10. Waternish scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Allday light sherry whisky
