Overall this is a very good whisky with nice tropical fruit aromas, but the spices on the palate are quite intensive. – Rating: 86/100

This single malt almost feels like a grain whisky. While the nose is not very exciting, the palate is full flavoured and delicious. – Rating: 85/100

The peat has almost completely transformed into fruity aromas after 30 years. The wood influence is surprisingly gentle – very delicious – Rating: 88/100

There is an unusual amount of spices in this sherried malt, the fruit is almost in the background. It is quite dry but still pleasant on the palate. – Rating: 85/100

The maturity of this barely legal whisky is amazing. Don’t hesitate to add water, it swims well. – Rating: 85/100

It has a lovely nose, but palate and finish are disappointing, a rather anticlimactic dram. – Rating: 76/100

Quite an enjoyable dram, a bit on the spicy side. The age does not really show. – Rating: 84/100

The fruity nose does not really indicate the strong spices that will hit your palate. You have been warned. – Rating: 84/100

Especially with water, this malt is very complex, the mix of spicy, herbal and light floral notes is intriguing. – Rating: 86/100

Very floral, but in a good way. There is a minimal soapiness to it but it is too faint to call it a flaw. Quite unusual. – Rating: 84/100
