Anyone tried this please ? If yes, what's it like ? I'm intrigued

Tried it some time ago, and here is my thoughts about it:

Nose: Bread. Hay, dust. Very cereal. Somewhat fruity.
Palate: Peach, coconut and vanilla. Smooth
Finish: Quite long and warming.
Score: 82

For such a young whisky, it sure is a good dram. Feel older both in nose and palate. I liked it, and I'm looking forward to a release with an age statement around 10-12 years...

Thanks. Apart from the nose (which doesn't interest me much anyway), this sounds nice.

I tried this a few days ago and was very impressed. It is matured in new oak, which gives it a spiciness and long vanilla finish that is unusual for a shisky so young - and it is sweet and malty on the nose and palate.

I tried it at the Highlander in Craigellachie a short while ago and was very impressed, I liked it a lot.

As an added endorsement, Tatsuya the bar manager advised the whole group to drive to G&M in Elgin and buy two bottles each to hide away for the future.

I tried it at RMW in Edeinburgh. G&M had sent a rep with their Benromach range but unfortunately she was plugging their 22yo Port Wood finish - which wasn't very nice but was quite expensive - and rather neglecting this very affordable little gem.

Some excellent endorsements by some top drammers. A bottle or two will be mine tomorrow.

I too went out and got my self one of these on the strength of this thread. Have not opened it up yet, would it be worth getting another one to put away for the future ??? or will it become readily available do you think ??

My mate and i had it at the Whisky Fringe.

It was delicious, rich and very full-bodied. For a whisky approximately 6.5 years old, it tasted as smooth and rich as one at least twice that age and is a must buy.

I suppose I'll have to get myself one of these, so. Is Royal Mile the only place that stocks it?

There is a future release planned for this, but again it will be limited. (from G&M)
