  3. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A good bolt of classical bourbon profile smoothed with a good portion of sweets, very powerful and rich, the fragrance needs a little time to open, the taste / finish is very dense, spicy, very solid.
    • Nose
      Restrained, wet, the first nose is a raw board; ripe grain, raw wood, moist plaster, lemon rind, vanilla, lemonade, fruit shades, cappuccino, over time strong herbal notes appear.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sharp-sweet, peppery wave, sweets even more, oak, bitter berry notes - rowanberry, viburnum; malt-grain motifs, ginger, vanilla, tropical fruits, dried herbs.
    • Finish
      Oily, warming, syrupy sweetness with light berry bitterness, lemon and orange candied fruits, caramel-lemonade tones, a little red pepper, grain.

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I find it undervalued here, but it is certainly due to the dissatisfaction with the price for a 17-year-old. Has a great, full mouth.
    • Nose
      Heidewiese, distinct malt notes, chalk, very concentrated, lemon, some mango, some ginger, vanilla, powdered sugar, grapefruit, pebbles, honey, some bananas vllt. also
    • Taste
      Very full and sweet with punch, banana, honey, vanilla, full apples, the alcohol is very clean, but it remains delicious and does not get burned, it comes sharpness of mentioned ginger, probably. also some pepper or nutmeg
    • Finish
      Long through the power, stay with toffee, banana, malt and some citrus back.

  8. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Teaninich is a favourite of mine but £270 for a 17 year OB, is an absolute joke.

  9. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: Malty, fresh, with delicate vanilla and onset of ginger-like pungency, almost peppery, with noticeable spiciness. But also sweet, powdered sugar, creamy toffee and honey, and over time fruit notes of oranges, grapefruit and bananas show up.
    Mouth: Very sweet, creamy, vanilla, with toffee and honey. Then juicy tangerines, ripe apples, great creamy mouthfeel, the alcohol pushes neatly, but offers a nice contrast to the clear sweetness. Gradually, a chili-like pungency develops here as well, but Malt retains its sweetness.
    Finish: Pretty long, still sweet, with sweet pastries and fine citrus notes.
    Conclusion: A worthy drop for the 200th birthday of the distillery, very balanced, a clearer wood tone might have given a little more elegance. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/

    On the nose, a vegetal side, fruity, grassy!
    In the mouth, it is very fine with dry almond, fresh pear, a sweetness of aromas, a little caramel and subtle spices, woody return thereafter!
    In the finish, the wood and almond face each other, with dried hay!

    A dram made of subtlety, where take the time and let the aromas come is more than necessary!
