  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blessed with a great, classic spring bench nose. If he still existed today, how would he be? It cannot be denied a certain similarity to the 10yo, although the current 10yo can offer a little more choice in the fruit department.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Wonderfully mineral right from the start, exactly what you would expect from a spring bench that is not too old. With this "minerality" it may seem rather bulky at first, but it is precisely this note that you don't find too often these days. Boiled apricots, peach juice, crushed oranges. The fruits pair with sea salt and with the mineral note. Very intense nose, penetrating, firm in itself. Espresso beans, nutmeg, yeast dough.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy-oily and soft start. Malt candy, toffee, whole milk chocolate. Apricots, orange peel. The fruits here on the tongue somewhat more withdrawn. Sea salt, damp pebble, damp wood, a little smoke. Marjoram and thyme, gets dry out the back, but remains fruity for a long time.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length and increasingly dry. Salt and nutmeg, orange peel, warm apricot jam, hazelnut.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Well, the 2013 batch was much more to my liking than the previous ones I tried (2010 and 2015).
    • Nose
      The nose of this batch is promising. Soft, sweet smoke and barley sugars, herbal notes and some wet chalk. I get some orange peel, nuts, white chocolate and hazelnuts. Some mint in the background.
    • Taste
      It is oily and very spicy. The chalk becomes quite loud, as if I’m tasting it from a jug. Both sherry and bourbon traits, that much is certain. Raisins, oranges, woodspice, green garden herbs and a salty note. The smokiness is not big, but unmistakably there.
    • Finish
      The finish offers up a surprising hint of candied pineapple. Where did that come from? But it certainly is pleasant.
