  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An excellent value for money whiskey. A superb nose. a must have for this price.
    Thank you whiskeybroker
    • Nose
      90 90
      Fine grain, marked however by age, with lots of fresh and exotic fruits (passion, pineapple), like an old single malt although less present. These notes are erased with aeration.
      The grain is characteristic: very sweet, vanilla, lots of wood with a touch of varnish, almond cake, coconut, a little cinnamon.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very easy, delicious palate but very well combined. Slightly thick texture. Lots of coconut, vanilla, caramel, a little tatin apple, molasses, a little pepper. The exotic fruit is more discreet.
    • Finish

      Final more interesting, more exotic from the start (lychee, passion, pineapple) than grain. Really a plus.
      Always vanilla and coconut, but which come next and spread for a long time. Some spices.

    A great grain, but of his adhesive note never completely comes off.
    • Nose
      First comes a vanilla adhesive note, which breathes away safely, later, the whole thing has turned into strawberry cream, Orangentorte, dry wall unit, but at the same time also notes of fresh wood, still a lot of vanilla, but the freshness of the grain is still through
    • Taste
      Creamy, vanilla, orange cream, more creamy strawberries, slightly dry oak, lots of heat
    • Finish
      The whole mouth is full of vanilla oak, nice warming and creamy, long finish, back out again a slight touch of glue

    Tasted this old grain next to its little brother (cask: 1300000024, WB 87114), together with Falnor.

    Nose: red fruits, bread, some wet wood and glue-ish. some vague hint of mackerel.

    Taste: wood, fruits, full and quite complex, somewhat smooth. Fragrances of menthol, cinnamon, mocha and boeuf bourguignon. Tasty!!

    Finish: long and smooth, some eucalyptus shows itself

    Overall: both bottles are very similar (0034 - 52,2% and 0024 - 52.3%), however, when comparing to its brother i slightly prefer its brother (0024), that one shows just a little bit more character where this one is just a tad more smooth.

    It's not a bad single grain, but the smell and taste of glue gets me every time.  Not my thing.

    89/90.
    • Nose
      Pine tree, candied orange, moss, glue, raspberry and vanilla. With water it gives an impression of fibre board, but also caramel.
    • Taste
      Orange-flavoured Turkish delight, coconut, oak, tonic and caramel.
    • Finish
      Toffee, cherry, banana and vanilla.
