  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Blueberry, caramel, strawberry, rosehip jam and mocha. Something like an older bourbon as well, so I suppose American oak despite the sherry. With water more towards vanilla.
    • Taste
      Strawberry, caramel, mocha, plum, vanilla, spice and peach.
    • Finish
      Mocha, blueberry, caramel and spice.

    CASK No. 2.105
    Deep, rich & dried fruits

    Deep as the Kraken’s trenchThe beautiful deep bronze colour tells you this will be dark – sure enough, the nose has treacle, molasses, Black Magic chocolates, black tea, bodegas and Captain Black dark pipe tobacco. The palate is viscous and visceral and deep as the bag-end of a Black Hole, deep as the trench where the Kraken sleeps – blackstrap molasses, syrup of figs, liquorice, clove and Veno’s cough syrup. The reduced nose has dark rum, Jamaican ginger cake and cricket balls. The palate – chewy dried dates, prune stones, Jaffa cakes and maple pecan Danish – makes you sing like Paul Robeson – an amazing after dinner digestif.
