    one of the best 12yo seasons I had

  4. diamond2000 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: flower-honey, citrus peel, white bread crumb, sweet pastries, pear with rottenness, hint of vanilla, a little bit of iron tones, quite simple.

    Taste: hot spices (black pepper, ginger) are replaced by lemonade sweetness, a burnt crust of black bread, overripe pear, and orange liqueur.

    Finish: again bread tones, from the crumb of white bread, to a burnt black crust, vegetable oil, a bit of grassiness, shorter than the average, but still very good considering 43%.

    Rating: 79-80

    Bottom line: a good initial Speyside, from beginning to end, permeated with bread tones. Very strongly reminded nas from Glenrotes Alba Reserve, with the same bread motifs, and I also rated them plus or minus equally.
