  1. LDB scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    The nose smells like a Riesling! Amazing.
    Unfortunately, he's a little unbalanced.
    • Nose
      78 78
      White wine-gooseberry minerality
    • Taste
      79 79
      Strong and fruity, a really interesting taste, removes a maritime note.
    • Finish
      77 77
      A little herbaceous, but a bit disappointing, not much happens.

  2. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Overall, very malty and sweet, but still occurs strong and voluminous. In the end, however, he leaves behind a still quite young character. I'm looking forward to older bottlings later
    • Nose
      Sweet, malt and sherry, a bit biting in the nose
    • Taste
      Sweet, sherry present, dominated by alcohol sharpness
    • Finish
      Medium long, some oak, sherry can be recognized, malt is clearly in the foreground, some dry fruit will come through later

    Nose: white wine and gooseberry mineral notes (is there the word?)

    Taste: strong and fruity, a really interesting taste, removes one
    Kind of maritime touch.

    Finish: a little herbal, but a bit disappointing, not much happens.

    But the nose smells like good Riesling! Amazing.
    Unfortunately, he's a little unbalanced.

    Young and edgy, still quite smooth and average. You can taste the vanilla brought by the bourbon cask; enjoyable and simple to drink, yet not unforgettable at all. Much better malts available for a similar price.

  6. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Soft, floral and heathery. Quite nice for a young whisky.
