Great balance - really fruity with some more savoury tones to keep it in check. But I wouldn't personally spend £100 on it, let alone the £250 asked for on the market.

    Malty with apricots, apples, orange zest, honeydew, a lot of hay initially. Some coastal Islay undertones. Better after lots of air - more fruit is apparent.
  • Taste

    Creamy. Honey, vanilla, peaches, honeydew, tangy citrus.

    The more savoury notes appear again (hay, coastal tones), along with honeydew, apple, a little citrus, vanilla, honey. Maybe some oats.

Calmar scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

Очень приятный и гармоничный виски, палитра не поражает воображение, но довольно разнообразна, примерно то же можно сказать о сложности и глубине - в абсолютном выражении вроде бы ничего особенного, но в целом производит положительное впечатление, к тому же вкус/финиш сильно прибавляют в развитии, там и глубина и сложность проявляются и букет полутонов раскрывается.
  • Nose
    Сдержанный, сухой, первый нос - красное дерево, сладкие винные тона; старая мебель, мебельный лак, орехи, пригоревшее варенье, жжёные сухари, пуэр, пахлава, ягодные нотки.
  • Taste
    Мягкий, насыщенный, сладкие ягодные тона, креплёное вино, пуэр, жжёные сухари, мебельный лак, немного перца и имбиря, в развитии проявляются кожгалантерея, тёмный шоколад
  • Finish
    Пряное, освежающее, винные тона, мебельный лак, имбирь, кожгалантерея, пряная древесина, трубочный табак.

I can't remember the batch, but it tastes like a condensed flavor of a certain stagg junior, no unpleasant taste, no alcohol

The bright and soft taste of wheat bourbon, no unpleasant taste, no alcohol, and a rare character like fruity

Petitcham scored this whisky 90 points Member Junior

It is well aged, complex and complete, and the character of the distillery is well alive.

Petitcham scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

It definitely tastes good, but the alcohol splattered..

Petitcham scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

Sharpness of low aging and heavy taste due to charred cask

Petitcham scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

There's nothing wrong with it, it's balanced, but not fun.

NOSE
Coppery herbal, caramel, hay, honied graham cracker, touch of olde candy, overripe fruit and peanuts.

I feel a similarity in delivery to Book 1, but this is a bit darker. More peanuts and copper as it opens/with water.

PALATE
Oak, copper, caramel icing, herbal spice, leather, hazelnuts, peanut brittle and bits of overripe fruit, vanilla candy and leather.

A bit dry and tannic on its delivery, but everything about what’s delivered is nice.

FINISH
Long -> Herbal spice, caramel, oak all fade
