  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    unfortunately somewhat one-dimensional for his mature age
    • Nose
      Creamy custard, sweet malt, after a while fresh mixed bread, spicy oak
    • Taste
      mild honey and vanilla, it quickly spreads a dominant full-bodied woody bitterness
    • Finish
      fruity and light at first, then the intense woody bitterness remains

    Eaty nose, light glue, overripe honeydew melon, but also some overcooked vegetables and fatty milk chocolate. The alcohol comes through now and then, but does not bother. Over time, the melon becomes stronger and bitter alien joins in. What dipped Cantucci in Vin Santo.

    In the mouth, the chocolate is present again, then subtle Fruchtpotpourri. The oak comes late but spreads over the whole tongue.

    There it stays in the finish, far back on the tongue and continues on the palate. Slight notes of freshly cut roses spread and after some time dominate the whole mouth where they linger forever.

    The malt is well matured, has no junk and convinces me through its complexity. The nose, mouth and finish all have their own characters, but they blend nicely. Nothing exciting, but nothing excited. A set whisky that can accompany an evening nicely but also draws attention every now and then. Like a good friend, with whom one can sit silently on the sofa and in the end still thinks one has again talked the whole evening.

    • Finish
      Vanilla, creamy on the palate, dark chocolate

  5. EarlMobile scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Very fruity and chocolaty sweet. Even some oak comes out nicely, but it has a certain spiciness that does not really want to disappear even with water. Since I do not quite like this "only" 83 points ...

  6. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Reminds me a lot of the Glenburgies bottled by Tasting Fellows.
    • Nose
      Fresh and sweet, grainy and grassy with notes of porridge and Weetabix. Slightly lemony with some polish, leather and cigarette smoke.
    • Taste
      Clean, powerful and sweet with a lot of oomph. Grainy, malty, and grassy with citrus aroma and caramel. 
    • Finish
      Long and grainy. Remains pleasant.
