  2. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A wild Speysider who would have been a few years better.
    • Nose
      Sweet and creamy, the malt comes along. Flowerhoney. Vanilla. Toffee. Pear compote. Malt. The alcohol is barely noticeable.
    • Taste
      First, a fairly strong alcohol. Behind it then approaches of apples and pears. Cough drop. Honey. Treacle. Some freshly popped pepper.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet again with creamy sweets and vanilla. Then spicy. Pepper. Dry finish with beautiful oak flavor.

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a young, lively and very strong Speyside single malt. Fragrant, fruity and sweet on the one hand, but uncompromising, powerful and intense with a significant alcoholic bite on the other. Not everybody's darling I suppose. But I like it!

    I thank Michel Reick from Scotch Universe for the sample!

    • Nose
      Fragrant and fruity on the nose with vanilla, apricots and a touch of bananas. Notes of malted barley arrive, lingering nicely with grassy tones and a hint of oak in the back. The high alcohol content is always present, but not really pungent.
    • Taste
      Strong and intense on the palate with a sweet start of vanilla, followed by yellow fruits - apricots and subtle pineapples. Very warming with white pepper and oak spice. Once the warmth fades, creamy notes of honey and a touch of toffee linger towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and creamy with vanilla, toffee and stewed apricots. Becomes pleasantly dry on the tail with prickling oak.

      WITH WATER: There's more yellow fruits coming through with a splash of water. Fragrant and sweet with vanilla and more malted barley. Still strong on the palate although the vanilla and toffee sweetness dominates. Less fruity with a spicy core of white pepper and prickling oak. The finish is long and slightly warming with creamy apricot jam, toffee and dry oak.
