    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.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very high-quality whiskey of a classic bourbon profile with a wide palette of derivatives, whole, perfectly balanced, not a single knock-out note or inappropriate shade, a rather complex composition, although there is no particular depth here, but this does not spoil the overall picture, very pleasant, drinkable, quite easy to perceive , unfortunately, in development, it sags a little with the manifestation of sharp oak shades;
    • Nose
      Open, damp, classic bourbon profile - fresh wood, planed planks, a bit of carpentry, lemon zest, light mineral notes - stone chips, chalk, plaster; dry white wine, crushed green grapes, herbal shades, floral tones, a little vanilla, green apples.
    • Taste
      Dense, intense, continuation of the aroma, heavier, spicy delicate oak, sharp mineral tones, herbal and floral shades, vanilla, lemon peel, green apples, tart notes of leather goods appear, light tablet bitterness, very, moreover, harmoniously woven into the general canvas; apple and grape seeds,
    • Finish
      Light, refreshing, delicate notes of oak, leather goods and lemon peel, mineral astringency, apples, apple seeds, herbal motifs, slight bitterness of young bark.

  7. DGV scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Seemed too prickly and bitter.
    • Nose
      Open, slightly biting. Duchess lemonade, ripe pears, apples, dry piece of wood.
    • Taste
      Biting, but sweet. Garden fruits, woody bitterness, black pepper.
    • Finish
      Longer than average, peppery, prickly, slightly astringent. A fruity sweetness that instantly turns into an oaky bitterness.
