    I really enjoyed this .. It has layers, the longer you spend with it the more you find to appreciate in it

    Great value for the money

    At the time he was a great tasting at the trade fair, but so far the content of the bottle has not really impressed me.
    He is so bitter that it is no fun. I like wood, but the balance is not there. In addition, rather thin and also slightly alcoholic. Either that's another batch or something else was served in the tasting.
    • Nose
      very subtle, rather spicy aromas, oak, some honey, minimal fruit.
    • Taste
      Very harsh in the mouth, alcoholic, lots of bitterness, wood and spices.
    • Finish
      The finish is also rather bitter, also wood, you have to look in between the fine notes ... but he is long, the finish.

    There are 20 masters each have a good barrel - due to the selling price, of course, not the oldest and most complex - selected from the warehouses and mixed into a magic trannies. This would now so about 10'000 bottles ... Due to the different bottle codes and the long sales years - in my code L34A45081808133537 in 2016 - I guess cheeky times that the masters have performed their tricks repeatedly. Of course, this is not at all disgusting, but it makes the comparability of the different tasting notes a little more difficult.
    • Nose
      The Candyman rings his bell in the street: very fruity and sweet, but also dark enough (figs, grapefruit, raisins, honey, candy), oak with its vanilla component, becomes bitter chocolate
    • Taste
      Liqueur-like, some licorice, all components of the nose are taken for granted.
    • Finish
      and now the licorice comes out very strong, spices help that the trunk warming and sustainable kullert down the throat. Very wholesome, not insanely complex, but interesting enough, especially for the price offered. I find a successful litter!

  7. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Overall this is good whisky. It is awfully sad this had been chill filtered and not cask strength. A clear example of ruining a whisky by trying to create something for everybody.
    Yet still not an bad whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      It is sweet, mellow, a little speculoos, a hint of sherry notes but overall it has bourbon notes, so sweet vanilla and a touch of wood.
      There is also the famous French whore perfume in here.
      It's an odd nose which touches quite some corners. Not bad though!
    • Taste
      83 83
      Thin and bitter arrival. After that sweetness, a tad leather and a hint of cigarboxes. A bit spicy. Hint of a sherry influence, but not much.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length. It is a spicy, bitter, sweet, woody complex finish. It is a shame this whisky must have been chill-filtered which has striped away so much. This finish destroys it.

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    An unusual, fruity, good Fiddich!
    • Nose
      mild, fruity (sweet grapes, berries), sparkling;
    • Taste
      soft, gentle onset, fruity (grapes, dark fruits), dry sherry, malt; nicely tuned;
    • Finish
      short mellow finish; medium-length fruity finish;

    • Nose
      78 78
      Alcohol, young, almonds, pineapple, peach, seems to be a lot of bourbon-cask-influence
    • Taste
      78 78
      Strong, alcoholic touch, young metal, great fruitiness,
    • Finish
      80 80
      Still alcoholic taste, oak, medium
