  1. gerrit de guru scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Lovely. Such a nice nose!
    • Nose
      Clear and sweet. The machine oil like spirit is present. Delicate grassy, heather and mineral notes. Cambeltownesque.
    • Taste
      Wow, Longrow? Pear, ginger, orange marmelade, white pepper.
      With water: more citrus, linseed and light peat.
    • Finish
      Short and sharp.

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice and lovely. 
    • Nose
      Fresh  and sharp. Vanilla tones combined with some smoky undertones.  Fruity and honey sweetness.
    • Taste
      Light peat smoke. Sweet honey with tropical fruits. Summer berries? Oranges.
    • Finish
      Long and lovely.  But also young and sharp. Found hints of creamy cacao.

  7. pipemajor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Overall, I like this whisky very well - in today's time a good price / performance ratio
    • Nose
      Very subtle aniseptic, sweet malt, pear, the alcohol is also present, vanilla aromas, exotic flavors like from an incense stick
    • Taste
      Very present and mouth-filling, a light sweetness is spreading, the green pear comes again, again exotic spices, with water it is a bit peppery and peaty-earthy
    • Finish
      Slightly peaty and with peppery sharpness

  9. WillemvdK scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Smoky milk chocolate! Pretty young and sharp, but especially the nose is nice. Lightly vegetal, reminds me of tequila. Small touch of orange? Good finish, cocoa!
