  1. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Little complex, but successful. Extremely tasty drink!
    • Nose
      87 87
      A glass of freshly opened poster color as well as fir honey and plums pickled in rum - nicely spicy.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fat-oily, with balsamic notes, always stays on the smooth side, but has muscles, something like the big, slightly nasty brother of the Allardice :)
    • Finish
      86 86
      Finally fine, mouthwashing, and definitely a great selection of sherry casks.

  5. Gregers scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      89 89
      Vanilla, sherry, honeysuckle, toffee, some peat, and a touch of ripe plum. Really good stuff.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Not bad, but disappoints a bit after enjoying the smell. Dried fruits, green apples, toffee, but hints of oak and increased peatiness take over after chewing 2-3 times, and the sweetness drop a bit too much.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Nice long finish, but it gets narrower as it loses even more sweetness. The aftertaste is mostly oak and peat, which is a bit of a shame, and a high contrast to the wonderful nose. Still very enjoyable, though. Just a good reason to take one more.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Great nose, well balanced, nice level of sherry.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Solid balance of sherry, and hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. Light peat.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish, with a dry sweetness.
