  2. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very tasty part
    • Nose
      Sweet banana, malty, vanilla pod, orange juice, white chocolate, milk powder, creme brulee, lemon pouring
    • Taste
      Very sweet, creamy but peppery, also here green banana, oak
    • Finish
      Sweet yellow fruits dominate, oak comes with force behind, only very subtle and thus very consistent bitterness

  3. FernetBranco scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A nice example of a whisky that gets better the longer you let it "stand". I left him covered in whisky glass for 24 hours ... then he is a real dream!
    Very sweet and fruity in all - beguiling floral nose. Powerful and spicy in the mouth. Medium-length, slightly salty finish with lots of vanilla and coconut. Great malt.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: The sun’s rays on peaches and cream

    Flavour Profile: Young & spritely

    It’s time for a roll around in the long green grass beside
    the gorse bushes with the floral scents of the freshly washed picnic blankets
    and freesia flowers heavy in the air. Feeling the tingle of lemon sherbert and
    popping candy perhaps we should get fresh with peppermint, lemon tart, candied
    lime peel and strawberries with mint and white wine vinegar. Too hot for you,
    lets cool off with some water to reveal a soft side as cooked apples and pears
    come to the fore, nectarines with cream and dark chocolate adding an indulgent
    whisper to finish.

    Drinking Tip: Whilst getting intimate in a remote summer
