7 users have left 7 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 88.79 points.

  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tried at a regulars' table, therefore shorter notes.
    A bit weak on the chest, with 5-6% more he would have easily cracked the 90, because otherwise he has really great grades, which I personally like, nice tropics but dry and slightly spicy. Atypical bunna, but great malt.
    • Nose
      Light malt, fino notes, cereals, heather grass, light nuts, pecans, macadamia, almonds, light oak, dried fruits rather subtle, dried pineapple, lemongrass and dried ginger
