    What a dram !!!
    • Nose
      Gummy bears, mango, lychee, lime zest, fruit salad with vanilla sugar, these yellow fruits are coated with sweet vanilla notes, floral scents, strawberry milk
    • Taste
      Sweet and sour start, vanilla, yellow fruit again, effervescent powder, oak, passion fruit, very light dryness
    • Finish
      A blend of vanilla, flowery yellow fruit notes and oak spice, beautiful long finish

    I really liked this blade. It has a good balance between fruit and decent flavor.
    I usually wait a long time with notes for bottles. Usually for too long, as there is often only one dram and then brief notes have to be written. But here it was on purpose. I shared it, so there wasn't that much left in the bottle. And with time and air in the bottle, it got better and better.
    • Nose
      A few exotic fruits like lychee, pineapple, coconut milk. Ginger. Some wax. Maybe some amaretto. Citrus fruits. Generally nice fruit acid. Floral and grassy notes. Tree sap.
    • Taste
      Much sweeter and even fruity in the mouth. Again the exotic fruits. With maple syrup. Then pleasant, but clearly noticeable ginger heat paired with oak spice. A few herbs and a little hay. Some tonic water.
    • Finish
      Citrus zest. Green tea. Pepper. Getting drier.

    • Nose
      Greek yoghurt with honey, citrus zests, grapefruit with peel, ginger, warm beeswax, geranium leaves, pineapple,
    • Taste
      sweet exotic fruit basket with only subtle acidity, harsh forest honey, mint rich, resin, beautiful strong oak flavors, rosemary, pine needles, laurel, a Hach juniper, dark chocolate, grapefruit peel
    • Finish
      Remains of exotic fruits, chocolate bitterness, tart oak notes like thickened tree sap - a combination of wax, pine needles and eucalyptus remains on the tongue for quite some time

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The nose is one of the best that I could smell so far. The rest of the whisky is delicious, too, but it does not get on your nose. A great matured old Lowlander.
    • Nose
      Intense, spicy nose, oak, beeswax, honey, fruits, tropical, but also citrus. Crumpet. Everything so perfectly interwoven, dreamlike.
    • Taste
      You notice the same age, beautiful woody notes, light tingling, honey fruits, some mint
    • Finish
      The finish is very minty, citrus peel, bitter almond, marzipan, honey and slightly bitter in the end.
