  1. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Young, powerful, extremely sweet, a lot of oak, vanilla and cream, unfortunately, there are also not quite appropriate mash and cardboard tones, which very spoils the overall picture.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, fresh boards, wood dust, grain, vanilla, sweet honey and confectionery notes, cardboard, old books, plastic, light mash-and-moonshine shades.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, wood grain, sweet creamy notes, raisins, dried fruits, pepper wave, young mash and cardboard shades, a lot of oak, young, wood dust.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, vanilla, raisins, nuts, cocoa, sweet honey and creamy notes, candied ginger, grapefruit peel.

    Significantly better nose than the 8-year-old from this series, but surprisingly rather weaker for my taste on the tongue and on the finish. In summary, the two bottlings give a total of very little, the one puts the focus more on the taste, the other more on the nose. In summary, an MP set, which I fortunately saved me. Not for connoisseurs, there is better Bruichladdich on every corner.
    • Nose

      Significantly calmer and immediately more pleasing nose than the other two bottlings from this set. The alcohol now noticeably better integrated and less disturbing. But now a decent dose of citrus notes and a few green fruits, especially light grapes and apple notes. The whole thing with a pleasantly creamy honey note, which definitely makes you want more. Very neat nose, with which you can also deal with something and wants.
    • Taste

      Like the 8-year-old here, surprisingly sweet and pleasantly fruity. This definitely fits and shows what a good first-fill Bourbon Cask can do. Very soft and mild for almost 63% Vol., Which you will not notice the Malt in any second. If the younger brother's focus was more on the fruits, then this one comes with a bit more citrus notes. Honestly, I liked the younger bottling but better in terms of taste a little better.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long and quite pleasant. We dry here a bit faster than the 8-year-old and can not save as much the fruit sweetness in the finish. Again, without technical errors or disturbing notes. Again, I liked the slightly younger malt better without it being bad here.

  5. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    By far the best of the MP7 trilogy. It is thinner, more worked and very focused on the Oranges.
    • Nose
      A very mineral nose but more pleasant than the 8 years old. There are notes of fruit, including citrus pies. Overall it is thinner than 6 & 8 years old.
    • Taste
      Attack lighter, alcohol is finally mastered. There is initially red fruit but quickly the pastry side comes back with some citrus zest (oranges).
    • Finish
      Always an average length on the woody, the cream and especially the Oranges.
