The colour is amber, and the nose detects slightly smoky hints. Warm sherry and vanilla aromas with a touch of caramel.
The taste is rich and complex, malty and slightly peaty, and the finish is long, recalling sherry, oak and smoke.
Personal Comment
The first nosing left a very good impression. A domination by malt with some slightly acid hints. The taste is influenced by sherry hints, on a background of malted barley, and some smoke. A rather long and pleasant finish completes the image, and prolongs the pleasure of drinking the not very famous whisky.
79/100
At the second tasting, the first impression is a great sweetness, and a honey and vanilla fragrance is detected by the nose. The palate confirms this first impression, and slightly smoky malt hints are present. The finish is rather long, and the vanilla sweetness is still present.
70/100
A pleasant sweet nose, marked by ripe fruits, pear or melon, with a hint of pepper on the background. Remote touches of dryed grass too. In the palate, the fruity sweetness shares the attention with toffee notes and a touch of bitterness. A pleasant finish, rather long, somewhere between hazelnut and malt. Just sweetness.

Comment by Johannes_Sauer
Colour: Bright golden, clear apple juice
Nose: Cereals are pushed infront by a strong alcoholic impression. Pott Rum my mother used for baking. Later a little strange but not unpleasant vegetable note like parsley, cellery and carrots. Vegetable soup with oats and pearl barley. Also always more and more cereals and porridge.
Palate: Sweet and full, the strong alcoholic appearance mixes well with the also strong cereals, grain, wheat and oatflakes. The veggie-soup suggestion of the nose is replaced by a soft fruity impression. Sugar plums.
Finish: The whole beautiful picture of a ripe cornfield in a sunset vanishes but far too fast, surprisingly, without leaving any strong impressions. Conc.: A malt reminding me to some blends: A fresh but unbalanced nose, a beautiful taste and a so! ft but unsatisfying finish.

Colour: gold
The nose is clear, dry and detects nut aromas.
The body is full and oily, with vanilla and marzipan hints.
First dry, it becomes smoother, and the finish is long.

(note of the bottler)

Personal Comment
The nose recognizes immediately a Speyside whisky, even if the complexity is less than for other malts from this area. The taste, rather dry and slightly acid is far from being unpleasant, even if it is difficult to define. The finish is a bit too short, and leaves hungry for more..
70/100
The second tasting confirmed the lack of complexity, but this whisky is excellent. The finish seemed longer, malty but balanced. The taste seemed more pleasant and this is why the rating is higher than the first time.
74/100
At the third tasting, the nose was very fruity (ripe pear), relatively complex, with some hay, cake and cinnamon smells. In the palate, a kind of bitterness and some slight acidity, somewhere between wood (or walnut) and citrus fruit, going successively from the one to the other. A nice woody and spicy finish (pepper).

Personal Comment
Color: Dark Mahogany
A slight odor of solvent and paint with some tingling due to alcohol first, before moving on to the sherry. The nose gives a nice feeling of freshness.
The first impression on the palate is very pleasant and strong enough contrast with the nose. Sherry immediately apparent and beautiful nutty with a hint of mocha give a nice complexity to the whisky.
The finish is long and warm memories of the sweet bitterness of the nuts mixed with hints of coffee is nice.

Personal Comment

Commentaire de Arno
Nose: immediately oriental scent with sandalwood, Asian spices. Fruity with fresh apple compote but, cinnamon, pepper. Notes of old polished wood, fragrant leather, bark and wood just cut. After aeration opens on fresh mint, bitter dark chocolate.
Taste: apples, malt and complex quickly fragrant blend with a strong spicy bouquet, curry, spices & herbs Thai (coconut milk, coriander, ngo-gay ...), notes of old wood a little acid and more astringent on the cork. The set is extremely fade, shimmer, warm, very good length.
Finale: woody & spices
Conclusion: incredible finesse nose and melted in the mouth, with a perfect balance superb malt make this a beautiful expression. The comments do not do render all impressions, something we lack at the reading. Impression to find the same feelings when I read the tasting in the book of M. Jackson: words next to each other, but some magic. As an old bottle that would have aged for years, would patina.

Commentaire de Whiskywardrobe
“Quite interesting. Sweet, vanilla, spices, powerful. Maybe a Master of Malt Single Cask? Arran maybe? 10 to 12 years old”
This dram has a gold-like color.

Nose (89): (5)more than average. honey, vanilla, spices, citrus, cinnamon. 50% ABV? an Cnoc? Arran?

Taste (90): powerful, oily. honey, spices, citrus, vanilla, wood.

Finish (90): (5)longer than average. honey, citrus, spices.

Taste: Very sweet, slight hint of lime that grows with aeration.

Finale: Very sweet, white fruit, rice cake, vanilla.
After aeration: Pastry, floral.

Comments: Very nice whisky, with lots of fresh fruit and a touch of vanilla. It improves with aeration!

Commentaire de Jmputz
Color: Gold
A nice fruity nose and nice notes of vanilla dominate the very pleasant nose even if a slight tingling reminds undeniable presence of alcohol. Also a nice contrast between the sweetness of vanilla and acid notes giving it a pleasant freshness in addition to a nice complexity. Also menthol notes ...
The palate is very acid, which confirms the very fresh side of this whisky. A fruity acidity dominates the palate from start to finish. This is certainly not a classic profile for a whisky. But once you have accepted that freshness can also generate a good whisky, it is quickly conquered. At least that is my case. Followed by spices with a strong presence. This makes this whisky a "love it or hate it" by well-marked contrasts between the various sensations.
The finish is long and remains in the original register marked especially by the freshness.
This is a whisky that is uncommon. Far from being an archetype for Scotch, it has a very particular profile and fireworks of unusual tastes can make you love it or you hate him.

Commentaire de Singlemalt71
Nose: Delicious combo of barley and fruit tones, sweet cookie dough, vanilla and light wood tones.

Taste: Sweet and a combination of some bitterness and sourness (reasonably well in relation to each other). The taste shall be better after some time in a glass.

Finish: Long and spicy (pepper) with a little bitterness at the end.

Commentaire de Samhain
Colour: straw

Nose: It starts with sweet cereals followed by hints of apple strudel with raisins.

Mouth: Sweet and malty at the beginning, then apple strudel comes up followed by cold ashes and some oak. With drops of water hints of cream appear and bring out a slightly salty impression - a bit like Werther's Original.

This malt has a long and mineral finish and gives me the image of water running over a limestone.

Commentaire de Jean-Marc
Nose: very nice, vanilla, almond milk, barley sugar nose "pastry."
I also believed perceive notes of milk chocolate, cocoa.
At times rather spirity then softenes to always remain fresh and vanilla.

Mouth hot mouth (alcohol level failry high), vanilla, barley sugar, fudge, anise.

Finish: long, spicy finish.

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Yellow gold.
Nose: Nicely fragrant. Juicy yellow fruits (apricots and tinned pineaples), and soft vanilla (marshmallow). Lots of gentle and creamy vanilla, but careful: this seems to be quite hot (over 50%). Soft spices from the cask (nutmeg), and given time a hint of coffee. Something like a high ABV custard or Advocaat. OK, this smells like "modern" whisky, but in a very pleasant way, I must say. Not unlike the nice Tormore the nice guys from WB had us taste recently.
Mouth: Oh yes! This is hot! Closer from 60% than from 50%, if you ask me. We still have this creamy fruitiness (apricot milk shake?), but with an additional spicy kick from the oak. This has probably spent some time in the cask (around 25/30 years?).
Finish: Black coffee, liquorice, and slightly drying tannins.
Comment: A rather luscious nose, and a creamy fruity mouth. It was time to bottle this nice Speysider: the oak was about to speak too loud!

Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: vanilla galore hiding a fruity heart (ripe banana). While aerating, expresses a malty side, almost hopped beer with a lot of cereal (my morning muesli). It almost smells the Scottish shortbread. Pastry icing side too.

Mouth: oily. Powerful. Slightly fruity and spicy.

Finish: long and almost a peppery spicy side.

Comments: I will go on a highland whisky, not reduced (high-degree turn around 60), raised in bourbon barrel, fairly young (aged between 10 and 15 years maximum). Apart from that, I liked it because the whisky is very expressive, flawless, long lasting and easily drinkable despite the high alcohol content. It lacks the complexity to be really to my taste and have a great note.

Commentaire de Savoureur
appearance: Riesling
nose: medium intensity, fairly well integrated alcohol (soft aggression which disappears while breathing), white fruits, fresh grains, haribo sweets are added while breathing, toasted bread in the background
taste: medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, acidity like unripe fruit, pink pepper, cereals, white fruit
finish: short to medium

Commentaire de Piazzolla
Nose: sweet and elegant, fresh, with notes of young Cognac. Slightly mineral and dusty. A little alcoholic. Vanilla and spices a relatively young malt from a quite an active (or even new). Even quite engaging. The burned wood of an empty cask.
Mouth: Auite strong start (spices / black pepper and ginger, a little spirity also) in line also with vanilla from the nose. Indolent and somewhat simple.
Final: average without surprise after the mouth. Chocolate.
Conclusion: a nice honest malt, which is fun as long as you do not expect anything other than a good daily dram. Maybe a little spirity however.

Commentaire de NovA
Nose:
fruity, and a bit coastal; A pleasant nose with creamy vanilla and sugar on the start, then you get lemon „bite“ (a mix of lemon and alcohol – its like they were meant to harmonise), some peach, blueberry's, pineapple, green apple, some salt, a little bit of smoke (gets less intense the longer the whisky breathes), effervescent powder, and a herbal touch all over very pleasant and complex
With water:
looses complexity, green apple and citrus-aromas gets stronger, while the rest more or less disappears

Taste:
powerful on the palate, caramel, very citric , lemon peel, fresh sour apple, some wood, yeast, alcohol, a little bit of bitterness, wine gum
with water:
more mild, but the palate gets more flat , very easy drinkable

Finish:
long, powerful, warm, lemon and some wood
with water:
still long, more on sweet citrus, no more wood, a little bit peppery

Commentaire de Wiski
Colour: Gold

Nose: Quite sweet on pastry notes (almond paste, butter cookie, caramel and vanilla). The fruit is ripe (ripe banana, juicy peach, pear), a malty background pretty present. Rapidly growing woody notes (old polished wood) and brewer's yeast. Grows on more floral notes (violet, lavender).

Taste: Citrus, both by the acidity and the fresh lively juicy. Seems very high in alcohol. Fairly spicy. Needs time to express itself. More flexible with respect to water, still quite woody and sweet spices on the finish and praline.

Commentaire de Jeep
Nose: Light. Initially very influenced by iodine, slightly citrus. After aeration, becomes very vegetal: herbaceous, floral hint, cheap perfume
Taste: Fairly intense. Much softer than the nose suggests. Some fresh fruit, a hint of honey. And still this floral touch.
Finish: Quite long. Saline mainly.
Comment: A special atypical whisky. Nothing is transcendent but whisky is rather well done and well balanced (tasted slightly cooled).

Commentaire de Applecross
Nose: The nose shows a bit of paper glue in the beginning (ethyl acetate), somehow soft, sweet with a trace of fruit (banana?) but also coconut. A short impression of ice-cream.
Palate: the alcohol bites if no water is added. Reminds me on older Grappa. Nevertheless, too secretive for me and a bit too bitter for my taste
Finish: Medium finish which gets a longer at the second/third sip, slightly bitter notes, surprisingly dry.
Remarks: Somehow more pleasant in the nose than in the palate.
Not a bad Whisky, but nothing which would find a place on my shelves.

Commentaire de Bishlouk
Color: Gold

Nose: Cacao beans which quickly fade. A pinch of eucalyptus, white wine. Acidity in the nose.
After several minutes of airing, most of the smells are gone and the cacao beans comes back.

Mouth: Very acidic and alcoolic attack, then citric acidity settles and occupies all the space. A drop of lemon is good, but here it is just too much. On the background I can taste a strong wine presence with dry wood.

Finish: This scrapes my throat off when swallowing, and the acidity stays far too long in the mouth.

Verdict: Quite atypical profile which reminds me of a dry white wine finish. Far too much acidic for my taste, from start to finish.

Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: notes of marzipan, orange and flowers. Alcohol is highly present at the beginning. The opening as water gives chemical accents (laundry lavender), syrupy peach, fried pineapple. There are a few waves of clay also. It quickly disgusting but not really unpleasant.

Mouth:massive but hot texture, with strong alcohol on chocolate, vanilla and yellow fruits (traces). Alcohol is far too present. The water did not help: Alcohol is still not acceptable and the flavors are so fleeting. Even drowned while leaving the bitter almond, it is still identified by alcohol. Frankly irrelevant but frustrating because the flavors could be pretty.

Final: The final contains almond and vanilla flavors but the power is almost insignificant compared to alcoholic development.

Comment: A very special sweet nose but the content will appeal. However, the mouth is suffused with alcohol (with or without water) covering some markers underlying. It is preferable even without water since then has a relative expression. The end comes quickly and is crushed by ethanol.
