  1. robain did not rate this whisky Specialist

    85€ for a 20 year old cask strength, even though its bottled 4 years ago is more than fine :-)

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A bit creamier than cask 5 by WhiskyBroker, which is a bit dirtier. But apart from that they're really similar.
    • Nose
      A soft, somewhat cookie-like maltiness. Vanilla, apple and honey. Later Wehrter's caramel. With water a sour fruity touch of blood orange.
    • Taste
      More of that cookie-like maltiness. Apple, vanilla, honey, peach, quite some spices and a little liquorice.
    • Finish
      Malt, almond, honey, vanilla and white chocolate.

  4. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    An attractive and balanced nose, with a palate that's a tad too spicy for me. Overall a good dram.
    • Nose
      Fresh lemon yoghurt and... well, really plenty of lemon indeed! Clean, fresh, and inviting with subtle notes of vanilla, wet grass, and stewed apples. Not very complex, but a profile that suits me and is well-balanced to boot.
    • Taste
      Nice, creamy mouthfeel. There's apple sauce, cinnamon and some cane sugar, followed by bitter oak. Finally some black pepper and cloves, as well as a touch of menthol.
    • Finish
      A lingering spiciness, with a fruity encore (pears, apples). Medium in length.
