  1. LDB scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blindly I could swear I had an old Glen Grant 16yo in the glass. Pleasant everyday dram for sure!

      Lemon curd, fresh rye bread crust, honey.

      Creamy vanilla-lemon-pastry aromas, very harmonious and smooth everything.

      Yes, well, he'll be gone, and that quickly - but with a friendly smile :)

    nice dram to sip on the side. Not more but also not less.
    He couldn't convince me.

      Lemon floating in a glass of alcohol.....
      was that it???
      Even blowing into the glass doesn't really help....
      Well, I'll give the dram a little more time in the glass and come back later.
      Oh look! A small honeycomb comes flying by with a few small fruits sitting on it.

      well here it looks a bit different than in the nose.
      It is creamy, with citrus fruits and a light note of vanilla, later becoming a bit tart. leather cloth rubbed in herbs. Then fruit acid shows up

      hey that was short!............
      some citrus fruits and vanilla..........
      with the second sip there was a brief herbal note.
