- Jim Murray has awarded 95 points to the Juveniles 2nd Edition (Whisky Bible 2007). "They've done it again!!! Almost an essay in delicate, sweet malt at its most complex. This is scotch at its most erotic; a wand has been waved over these six casks. Simply fabulous."
- A beautifully balanced whiskey that immediately reminds you of a candy store. I think he is too sweet for many people, but since I am a sweet jackdaw, I really appreciate him.
A light, fruity, subtle and well-balanced whiskey with notes of ripe cherries, pear, rose water, apple, grapefruit, pear candies, plantan, orange, orange blossom, pineapple, peach, nectarine, barley malt, cereals, oak, vanilla, honey, Turkish fruit, icing sugar and a hint to a touch of smoke.
A fresh, fruity, full and well-balanced whiskey with notes of soft smoke, anise, brine, fennel, raisins, red currants, apple, orange, lemon, lime zest, ripe banana, gooseberries, honey, vanilla, cereals, cinnamon, ripe fruits , icing sugar, oak and balsamic.
A medium long and sweet aftertaste with notes of ripe fruit, citrus and sweets.
- Juveniles, the original bottling, was made for Tim Johnston and his Juveniles wine bar in Paris. Originally, Compass Box made something just for Tim to sell at his restaurant, but the French importer, then all European importers, asked to sell it. The whisky combined three malts, distilled in the villages of Brora, Longmorn and Muir of Ord, all aged in first-fill bourbon barrels. This was one of the first malts ever to be able to boast this type of high quality oak aging.
