  1. Archer scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    In a nutshell: a fantastic single cask. The fact that a basket full of tropical fruits appears at the end adds a crown to the already very successful whiskey.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Great nose! More reserved than the 2001 single Cask by CWS, but incredibly complex. The flavors of each shape are well coordinated: Dried figs and dates, blackberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, chervil and allspice. Toffee, caramel, warm vanilla sauce.
    • Taste
      93 93
      Oily and smooth, some liquorice, pepper, but also raisins and dried figs, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper. After a while, actually banana puree and some papaya. Very interesting development after tending towards dark sherry at the beginning. Very full-bodied and mouth-filling.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long and only slightly dry, the tropical fruits, which appeared on the tongue after a while, develop fully in the finish. Fantastic.
