  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite sour and very buttery in the nose but not in a rancid way. Initially lacks some complexity tastewise, but improves significantly with oxidation in the bottle. A quarter into the bottle this really starts to open up.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very buttery, sweet and sour. Pancakes drenched in butter, vegetal, sour apples, lemon, pickles, vanilla, nutty, krupuk, pencil shavings and ginger.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy butter, sour green apple, red apple, vanilla, red liquorice, vegetal with ginger and white pepper.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length: some sour fruitiness, a mild liquorice note, quite vegetal, ginger, during the first quarter of the bottle also a little stale.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Predominantly sweet and pretty strong whisky. If you would taste this blind, you probably wouldn't say it has matured on a refill sherry cask, actually no sherry influences here.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, citrus, tropical fruits, pretty dominant alcohol, honey, some butter-like aroma as well. And some vanilla.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pretty strong, pepper, sweet, honey and vanilla, not very complex. Pretty tingling, and also some butter.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still pretty some peppers. Sweet, some honey and vanilla, a bit of peach as well. Middle long.

    Nevis makes its way through a strange barrel, but only makes its way, a strange release, it is difficult to break into details, sorry ...

    Unexpectedly unusual cask selection)

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      85 85
      Apple, vanilla, almond, grass, macadamia and a bit meaty. Still a bit too young. With water the meaty touch is gone, more apple instead.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Macadamia, apple, vanilla, hay and malt.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Macadamia, vanilla and apple.
