  4. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A start that brought high standards and a review going towards the 89. But the palate and finish was nothing like that and was an anticlimax. 85 
    • Nose
      Nice surprising nose! Quite the cameleon. It changes direction and very layered. 
      Nice sweetness from caramel. Fresh fruity with canary melons and nectarines. Then a meaty side with bacon or ham. Totally fun and highly enjoyable. Thick and sweet honey. White chocolate with coconut rasp. 
    • Taste
      And then the palate. After an adventurous nose I expected something from the palate. Sadly itś very easy going, very normal even a bit dull. So vanilla, creamy, buttery and round. Applejuice and other jammy fruit. A bit of spices like peper and ginger. 
    • Finish
      Vanilla, wood and apple. Also the same easy going nothing special what was lost from the great nose.

  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Wasn’t a fan of this I’m afraid. It tasted very young and had quite a bit of unbalanced roughness to it.

    Tasted as part of the 2017 BTC
    • Nose
      Light wood. Woodspice. Vanilla. Peaches. Hay. Caramel rounds. Seville oranges. Quince. Gooseberries.
    • Taste
      Ethanol. Bitter wood. Dry oak. Vanilla. Fresh linen. Lavender. Copper.
    • Finish
      Long. Dry. Woody. Lots of cinnamon. Some floral notes and a weird, sour, bitterness.

  8. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A good, fruity, clean, mature whisky. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Very fresh with apple cider, white grapes and a hint of peach and pickled lemon. A whisper of straw, honey and porridge, as well as some feint cardboard notes and wood glue. Finally some floral notes. Interesting stuff, in a good way.
    • Taste
      Creamy stuff and well-balanced. A soft menthol flavour, feint spices (white pepper, cinnamon), lime and sweet barley.
    • Finish
      Ending on feint grassy notes, but also some more of fruitiness. Long.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Tasted as part of the Blind Tasting Competition 2017. Reminded me of Tullibardine and even a bit of Littlemill.
    • Nose
      Straw, apple, dough, cardboard, vanilla and blood orange. Then white chocolate with a bit of coconut.
    • Taste
      Hay, apple, sweet lime, cardboard, blood orange and pepper.
    • Finish
      Hay, apple, vanilla and grapefruit.
