  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 217 bottles from cask 5191A complex and somewhat unusual example of the make, well matured in a first-fill American barrel, which has imparted a rich golden hue. The first impressions are predominantly fruity – baked apple and plum, soon joined by an acidic note which may be pineapple, all on a pastry or flap-jack base. Behind these aromas is a hint of sphagnum moss – a very light medicinal smokiness. The latter becomes more apparent when water is added, becoming mineral-like (bathsalts?), while the fruit aromas become Dolly Mixtures or boiled travel sweets. There is a hint of sweet tobacco or dog-roses. The taste is sweet, with some acidity, a hint of white chocolate, then plenty of cask-derived coconut in the aftertaste.

  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Good whisky but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Quite closed, sweet and by far not as alcoholic as expected. Notes of caramel, oak, cereals, and hay. Some fruity aroma as well (apples). Hints of shoepoilsh. Pleasant.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sweet, hot and rather simple, with quite a lot of alcohol and caramel. Notes of oak, liquorice, and applecake as well.
    • Finish
      Long, mainly on notes of liquorice and old wood.
