Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Cherry and strawberry jam.  Orange marmalade.  A hint of mint and pepper.  Definitely chocolate and a really nice sweetness.  Quite spicy, but I think a tad less heavy-handed on the spices than for instance the Aberlour A’bunadh (94)

Taste

Juicy at first, but slightly tannic and quick drying. Dark dried fruits (raisin, orange, plum, fig) and again very sweet.  Hints of tobacco and damp woods.  Now the spices are nipping at the tongue. Lovely! (93) 

Finish

Long and perfect, just the way I like it. (92)

This is like the Octarine (which is very nice too) on steroids. Fruity, from more fresh to ripe towards the finish, with white & milk chocolate, honey, toffee, caramel and mild spices. With a mouth watering finish.

Angelos Tasting note

Angelos gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Mahogany
Nose

Oranges, almost zest, some grapefruit, caramel, milk chocolate (Crepes with nutella and grated coconut)

Taste

Ripe oranges, caramel, grapefruit, mild tannins from the oak (european I believe), raisins, strawberries, some cranberries, sweet chocolate

Finish

Medium with some lemon oil, cranberries again, mild tannins

Comments

I believe the whisky for Batch1 is a bit older than those which have been used for Batch 2 + 3. It is just an opinion. It comes more ripe than the other ones! Anyway... Batch 2 remains my favourite one!
