    It’s not a bad whisky by any means, although the nose is more interesting than the palate. I’d probably rather get a single cask Glen Elgin 22-23y for that price though.

    • Nose
      A very creamy nose here, quite a bit of fruits too. I’m getting mainly green apple and pear. Soft vanilla, honey, toffee and some nice crème brûlée. There’s also a popcorn note, I’m guessing that’s the Girvan influence.
    • Taste
      A strong arrival which is quite peppery, and unexpected. Then kiwi’s and apple. Some sugared cereal (Frosties). Quite a simple one actually.
    • Finish
      Creamy butter again, a bit of lemons and a mandarin tangy note. Medium long.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The surprise of spice is always nice and exciting, has interesting interplay, I like it.
    • Nose
      Pear dissolved in caramel, lots of vanilla, exciting blend, honey, melon, green apple, floral, kiwi, hints of mint and cinnamon
    • Taste
      Spicy, more than the nose would suggest, ginger, nutmeg, melon, mango, green apple, papaya, nice round despite beautiful malt and spice, light tobacco, fruit salad, beeswax, pineapple, kiwi
    • Finish
      Medium long, warming, sweet Obstreste continue with the seasoning and malt, a little honey

      8/7.5 Soft, sweet, and vanilla-floral. But there's still that grain bite, despite the quality and age. A touch of water seems to heighten the harshness.
    • Taste

      9.5/9 This is somehow the ideal Scotch Whisky. I want this every day. There is drop-dead beautiful waxy fruit that goes on and on and on, with different flavor on each layer. Also soft vanilla and a bite of something acerbic right on the end. Water cuts the bitter-offnote out and turns everything into a gorgeous flan at the expense of the fruit.
    • Finish
      85 85
      8/8.5 Buttery smooth, creamy, and sweet.
