    Also a free sample, not really my taste profile, here too the short summary is enough ...

    20/21/21/21 (83P)
    • Nose
      Light and pale straw in a glass, vanilla with roasted aromas, somehow the nose is really mean ... Metallic, light malt, cereals, yellow fruits, musty, sugar and alcohol.
    • Taste
      Tart and thin, fruity, sugar, yellow fruits, subtle burning sensation on the palate, intensifying sharpness, slightly wooden, next sip. thin and watery, briefly fruity sweetness, raisins, initially subtle spiciness which becomes more and more dominant, hazelnuts, oak and sugar.
    • Finish
      Voluminous, slightly spicy and woody, hazelnuts, caramel and minimal yellow fruits, maybe a little raisins, long-lasting and warming. The pleasant sharpness lingers in your mouth for an eternity.

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet, with notes of cereals (which tend to disappear). We have fishing and a hint of smoke, which is reminiscent of Springbank. Promising. With the opening, unfortunately, the young and a little rough side is revealed.
    • Taste
      We find the softness felt in the nose but spoiled by a too hot side, due to excessive youth.
    • Finish
      Spicy, but linear, quite boring.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth and finish 2/5

    Rather strong young whisky. Not very complex yet, but basically a lot of potential.
    • Nose

      Fruit cake, a little maltiness, herbal aroma with a fine sweetness, traces of pineapple and orange
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweetness of grapes, citrus, vanilla crisp, rather strong malt
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long, light pepperiness, more sweetness of grapes, the oak bitterness is strong

      Sweet fruits, wine, malt, wood, honey, a little medicinal alcohol, little to no smoke or peat
    • Taste
      65 65
      Full and mouth watering, sweetness and malt,
    • Finish
      65 65
      Short finish, still a little sweet and spicy

    • Nose
      80 80
      Strong, sweet, fruity nose with some sherry and spice.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Very fruity and spicy again. Powerful and yet soft.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Softer than expected. Medium long, but also a bit metallic. Great potential for future, future bottlings.

  8. wisekycourse scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    always a young whisky ... a young distillery!
    • Nose
      malt, cereals, herbs and sweet fruity
    • Taste
      the fruits a little cooked, a little dust, dry herbs, the malt is present
      fine spices, back a little woody and glue
    • Finish
      simple on short finish, it smells of freshness, youth, but the fruits are below, like the woody, there are too many grasses at the finish level

    75 pts. vs Handcrafted's 71. There's still too many reminders of new make for me to want to purchase an entire bottle, but it's slowly getting there.
