  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Classic ex-bourbon whisky. Very strong and slightly alcoholic without water. With water he is very set on licorice. Good, but without special features.

  2. Segens scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Continuation of the blind tasting 13th of 24 drams. Another dram that makes me not too happy but was interesting to drink. We have here Highlands, a young dram (9 years) and 63% of alcohol is my guess.
    • Nose
      marcipan, lemon quite special but alcohol-wise very overpowered but not that it is killing the nose you just realize there is a lot :-)
    • Taste
      First the alcohol which is too strong then some sweetness which is difficult to point out but maybe elder sirup 
    • Finish
      metallic but due to the alcohol warm and very powerful. Difficult to name a lot of flavors…

    The nose is quite interchangeable and ordinary, in the mouth it is then much more interesting the chocolate / pear combination on the finish is very nice.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      First fruity associations of yellow fruits, apples, pears, but also lemons, all rather immature and sour. After some standing still stressed acidic profile, now with cereal notes and some malt. It warms up a little sweeter and grass and floral tones join it. The warmer it gets, the more noticeably the acid returns, however, when it reaches hand warmth it almost completely disappears again. Overall, more gentle aromas, the pears are now ripe and caramel is there.
    • Taste
      Also in the taste first pears, then some caramel before the whole moves with the emerging alcohol in the direction of herbs and oak. Only mild acid in the back of the mouth. The alcohol gets quite strong in the back, chili-catch, the mouthfeel could be fuller.
    • Finish
      In the finish, it starts off as herbaceous herbaceous, chocolate notes come up with some pear flavor in the background. Overall, medium and warm.
