  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Great medium-aged whisky, for € 80, also a great price! I could have bought a bottle of this.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet and fruity. Another (meanwhile classic) peach scent and other canned fruit. In the distance there is a little acid and a little bit of wood. Great nose, not much depth, but great.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A small alcohol bite. But then again the sweetness. The banana meringues come forward. Furthermore, some canned fruit.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length. Here the dusty things that I often found come out a bit more. Furthermore, the sweetness, some caramel and some cream. Great finish.

    A nice dram. I am now more of bottlings on CS but this is a nice complex whisky without being flat.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet and fruity. Apple, pear, but also some tropical fruit, pineapple. Also the sweet-weeïge of banana. A tang of vanilla. Beautiful, rich nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet-bitter, but the sweet predominates. The apple and pear dominate the tropical fruit. Something menthol tingles on the back of the tongue. A spicy edge at the end, pepper, menthol.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Nice spicy, bitter finish. Something on the short side.

  4. Willum scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Based on the nose I had expected a fresh fruity dram but the taste is flatter and sweeter than expected.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Banana, Pear, Caramel, Fudge, Grass, Little mint
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the extension of the nose but mainly dominated by sweets. Then a slight bitterness.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium light bitter.

      Apple, tropical fruits, canned fruits (tangerine), grass, malty,
    • Taste
      83 83
      A bit of tropical fruits, malty, cirtic, a bit sour, winegum. Can't deliver what the nose promises.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium-long, a tad bitter, malty

    Nose:

    Sweet and fresh. There is the typical Glenburgie nose, but in this one it's more at the background. With water you get more dense hay notes and the tropical notes are more prolonged at the background.

    Taste:

    Sweet and a tad sour. A bit like if they've put some sucrose in here. The fruitiness becomes more clear with some water, but also if water added it becomes more tannic.

    Body:

    Medium, a bit oily

    Finish:

    Medium length. A tad bitter and tannic. A hint of toffee and some tropical fruit juice. With water the oak pops up. Price:

    Around €70,- for a 21yo is not expensive. And in this case, a fair price-quality balance.

    Presentation:

    Sober but decent. As always with Van Wees.

    Comments:

    This one has spend to much time in the cask. Should have been bottled younger imho.

  8. Toffie76 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    a nice, precise, acidulous nose with a touch of wax. Floral. The mouth is a good step underneath and shows a development a little short and disappointing. Nice despite everything. But what a nose!
