Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Incredibly rich and honeyed on the nose with a beautiful melange of herbs, spices, heather, roots, and ginger. Rich and silky on the palate with a sweet, mature malt whisky backbone flanked by waves of viscous honey infused with heather, herbs, and roots (Mar 2012)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The nosing passes find layers of aromas of honey, heather, pine needle, thyme and salty single malt Scotch whisky. Entry is thick, gently sweet but balanced by a fierce herbal quality; midpalate focuses on the whisky while the various herbs, spices and honey make merry around their whisky core. One of the best liqueurs available. - Paul (5/1/2008) - 96-100: Classic/Highest Recommendation (May 2008)
