  1. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    You can tell it the alcohol strength, off the side of it is a very beautiful enormously sweet Bourbon barrel bangers, yummy!
    • Nose
      Menthol freshness, some alcohol, vanilla, ripe apples and pears, a simple but nonetheless round nose
    • Taste
      Extremely sweet and warm, the alcohol pushes neat, light caramelized dried fruits, especially apricots and dates
    • Finish
      Again, extremely sweet, hardly oak, medium, the alcohol keeps your mouth warm minutes later

    Frutiest Scotch I've had so far, and I searched for exactly that. Extremely green'ish apple'y, some vanilla notes arriving later on the palate, surprisingly easy to drink for its young age and 65%, very great with dry Tonic or in Highballs.

  4. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Extremely fruity. Apple and pear. In addition, intense vanilla. Strong start by the high alcohol content.
    • Taste
      Intense and powerful. But already surprisingly well composed. Fruity start, then pleasant cocoa. No conspicuous youth.
    • Finish
      Pretty short but mild. The cocoa is getting drier. For a long sip something alcoholic.

  5. Woodsmoke scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Apple, fresh and slightly citrus.
    • Taste
      Oak is full, sweet as well. The alcohol drowns out a lot. A bit spicy the malt ... water did not help me much.
    • Finish
      Fruity, with sweet oak and some tobacco.

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

    This is a surprisingly fruity Highland single malt with mature notes of
    yellow fruits, nicely balanced with pepper and oak spice. Besides being
    powerful due to almost
    66% of alcohol, it displays an excellent drinkability benefiting
    from a supplementary splash of water. A delicate, enjoyable all-day
    dram. Young, bold and gloriously fruity! I thank Caminneci - Wine & Spirit Partner for the sample!

    • Nose
      Alcohol at first (surprise, surprise). However, not unpleasant and even
      not pungent at all. Behind that ripe yellow fruits arrive - apples and
      pears in particular, followed
      by pink grapefruit and slightly bitter orange peel. All in all
      lovely fruity and mouth-watering with a touch of fresh grass in the
    • Taste
      As expected, a strong and powerful start on the palate due to the high
      alcohol content. However, the delicate fruitiness shines through right
      from the beginning with
      juicy pears, apricots, cherries and red currant. This is accompanied
      by a pleasant warmth. Notes of honey and vanilla nicely linger with
      slightly bitter flavours of pink grapefruit and orange
      peel in the back. Very tasty.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, warm and creamy with a spicy edge of pepper and oak on the tail.
      With water: Very fruity and refreshing on the nose
      with lychee, strawberries, passion fruit, apricots and pink grapefruit
      by adding a splash of water. The alcohol is tamed
      significantly with a few more grassy flavours shining through. Also
      very fruity start on the palate with lychee and apricots, immediately
      followed by an intense spiciness of black pepper and
      crisp oak. Creamy notes of acacia honey, toffee and vanilla towards
      the finish. The finish is medium long, slightly warm and creamy with
      acacia honey and a hint of pepper. Tender dry notes of oak
      on the tail.
