  1. Eigerle scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Slightly better than the standard twelve, but not a revelation. Too little complexity for its age and a bit weak in the finish. Enjoyment is kept in a good mood here by continuous smelling. Since it is not out of the ordinary in terms of price, one can draw a good conclusion.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    NOSE:
    dried figs (reminiscent of Redbreast), dry sherry nose with a certain alcoholic spiciness

    TASTE: coffee-like, soft at first, then drying quickly, and in the

    ABGANG it then follows quite a bit, a bit burning and bitter with a note of calamus root. Overall, not that convincing for me at first glance.

    But now to the presumed origin: I'll say Speyside, Oloroso barrel, at least 46%, 12 years
    I would be worth a maximum of 40 € - maybe benriach sherry 12yo?

    The whisky has its delicious sides, but I'm not really excited. 78 points.
    • Nose
      77 77
      Something alcoholic. Otherwise vinous soft fruits, grass, malt.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Cereals, red apples, strawberries.

      78 78
      Medium long, pleasantly fresh.

  7. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Begins with a delicate maltiness followed by fruity aromas and a hint of sherry. Porridge with yellow kiwi and apricot and muesli with dried fruit.
    • Taste
      Soft, voluptuous body. First, juicy sherry notes, oranges, apricot, dry oak and spicy notes of ginger and pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium long, delicate oak with pronounced spiciness of ginger and cloves.

  8. markjedi1 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    This one is hard to find nowadays, but do not despair, it’s not that good. Much better than the regular 12, but also twice the cost. Spend those 65 EUR on something else.
    • Nose
      The nose is fruity and sweet. Oranges and apricots with a hint of unripe pineapple. Mildly floral with freshly cut grass and wild heather flowers. Quite grainy. Hints of dades. After a few moments some banana kicks in. More than okay, though.
    • Taste
      It is nicely oily, but immediately honeysweet on the palate. The same fruit as on the nose, upholstered with some mild spices. A bit of cloves and liquorice, but also a pinch of pepper. Some nuts join. Again more than okay, but far from grand.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and shows some agrums and cocoa.

  10. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    anything but boring, he starts gently in his mouth, he has a lot of volume and power for a Lowland Paint
    • Nose
      soft round but spicy oak with a slight hint of cocoa and increasing waxy notes, as with grandpa in the woodshed, after sawing with a slight touch of resin in the wood dusty air, behind prunes and raisins, the first sour fruity and later sweet smells, with some leather and dates
    • Taste
      very soft and round, sweet, toffee, caramel, slightly bitter spicy sparkling oak, chocolate, tobacco leaves, behind it red fruits with the second sip of dried fruit - dates, plum jam, lemon zest
    • Finish
      quite long and warming, but not alcoholic, citrus, cocoa, orange oil, nuts

  12. vojt466 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Compared to the basic version, there is no big shift ... such a lot of light, but certainly not bad
    • Nose
      The smell is quite subtle - it is fruit - citrus, unripe oranges, flowers, wine, raisins, wax.
    • Taste
      The taste of woodiness - vanilla and caramel, citrus.
    • Finish
      The conclusion is a woody set with a little spice, which will definitely spend some time in.

  14. smaeksle did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Great, cheaper all day dram.
    • Nose
      Beautiful sweet, then comes very quickly the sherry. Wonderfully easy.
    • Taste
      Sweet with a little bitter impact, then increasingly spicy.
    • Finish
      Less sweet, but neat spicy.

    Straw yellow is this whisky! The aroma is restrained. Here is a clear Sherrynote, lots of sweetness and fresh citrus fruits. The taste is more expressive than the nose. Again a lot of sweetness. There are apricots and again citrus fruits, but also grapes and almonds in the background. A peppery pungency is a pleasant companion all the time. The aftertaste is long and warm and leaves behind a hint of plum wine.
    A light, tasty whisky. Extremely round and harmonious.
