    A tasty fruity, no-nonsense dram. Not very complex and despite the high ABV a rather short finish. Drink well away (add water not necessary) and perfect to enjoy during the summer months! All in all a successful bottling of this Whisky club. Thanks for the generous sample, Dominic!

    Tasting note by whiskynotes | thx Ruben

    Nose: plenty of orchardy notes, fruits and blossoms. Apples, greengages, gooseberres, white grapes… a little candy sugar and honey. Vanilla. The malty core and spices (ginger, pepper, mint) balance the sweetness. Mouth: quite sweet again, and fruity like a white wine. Green apples, peaches, lemons. Honey, hints of almonds. Very bright and aromatic, simple pleasures. Some punchy pepper towards the end. Finish: not too long, bright, half fruity, half oaky and malty.

    The brightness and fruitiness of this Speyside dram is hard to resist. Easy drinking whisky which they sold for around € 100 if I’m not mistaken.

    Score: 86/100

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A profile of Speysider very classic, but also very drinkable without asking any existential questions. Nice as a whole.
    • Nose
      The fruit is immediately present. Dry apple, lemon juice, white grapes. Vanilla malt is also very present. A fruity but dry nose too.
    • Taste
      It delivers what the nose announced: tart green apple, a lot of vanilla lemon. Spicy salty spices settle.
    • Finish
      Short. The fruit disappears quickly enough to leave only residual dry malt. A pinch of salt makes resistance.
