  1. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Beautifully uncomplicated, harmonious "minimum maturation whisky" with lots of grain and malt character, a slightly exotic fruit salad aroma on the nose, which then morphs on the palate into pronounced notes of fallen fruit and apples, and a hearty, spicy, salty, almost meaty finish , which reveals old age and reminds me of just as old (or even older) Bunnahabhains.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Floral, (multi) fruity, delicately spicy, noticeable oak.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Acidic-refreshing, quite official texture despite the dilution to 46%.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Dry and strawy, but at the same time southern fruity and oily-salty.
      You can understand what Longmorn was/is responsible for at Blends.

  6. Gerhans scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Pretty tasty! The nose is much lifelier than the actual taste. I would have loved the fruitiness to come back in the taste and finish. As it is, a really solid dram.
    • Nose
      Honey fruits like pears, apples and bananas and nutmeg. Nice and soft nose! After a while, more exotic sweet fruits come through, like a exotic fruit sorbet.
    • Taste
      Sweet honey, caramel and vanilla with some oaky spiciness and nuts. Much less fruitiness than the nose would suggest.
    • Finish
      Nuts, caramel and honey. Medium finish but the sweetness lingers quite long. A little rum-esque on the finish.
