  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Impressive grain whisky. One
    of the best I have tried so far.
    • Nose
      The nose is very soft. Sweet
      as in chocolate, candied oranges with a creamy heart like a marshmallow. A
      juicy tangerine. A touch of oak, but no tannins. Somewhat toasted. Whipped egg
      white? Some caramel. This is wonderful.
    • Taste
      The attack is spicy, mouth
      coating and creamy. The sweetness is more fruity than it was on the nose. Chocolate
      cookies with orange marmalade, honey and coconut. Ginger and nutmeg kick in.
      Nice balance.
    • Finish
      Fairly long finish.

    Tastingnotes from Murray McDavid

    Colour:  Polished Copper.

    Body:  Rich and refined, with fantastic weight and a magnificent , mouth-filling glow.

    Aroma: Marzipan and fudge dominate the nose, backed by ever so subtle phenol notes. With time the spirit softens out, melon and apple notes, the perfume of a wild meadow all mingle with more robust bourbonesque notes.

    Palate:  The main event is something special !  Butterscotch, fresh mint, vanilla and almonds all mingle beautifully, wave after wave of luscious creme caramel, madeira cake ans spun sugar coat the palate with an intense richness and complexity.

    Finish:  Soft, balanced and beautifully constructed, you will be back for more !
