Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Aromas are bright and mostly earthy with fresh cut grass, oats, and some light caramel. In the mouth there is a delicate sweetness, honeyed floral notes and soft baking spices. Light caramel and a touch of smoke in the silken body make this an elegant and luxurious whisky. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Some of the Scotch is finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, which accounts for the honey and dried fruit fragrance. The spirit has a smooth, soft feel and a touch of juicy sweetness. Look for caramel and vanilla and rather aggressive oakiness, finishing with orange peel. Best with some time to open up.
