  2. holborndrinker scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    High strength, but it works well in this one. Young, but very pleasant.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Quite gentle on the nose - some sugary notes, but nothing massive.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The nose hides a massive hit of alcohol, but in a good way, like being warmly embraced. The rum cask provides sweetness - the alcohol provides a good warmth.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long - sweetness cut through with the big hit of alcohol.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    First encounter with this English distillery, and I like it. Strong and sweet.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Very sweet and fruity, vanilla and peach, clearly some rumcask influence. Some fresh apples as well.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, strong and pungent. Honey and vanilla, citrus, tropical fruits, some caramel, pretty full taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still pungent, sweet, vanilla, honey, some oranges. Reasonable long finish.

    Beautiful young Englishman ...
    • Nose
      Rum! Then green notes, herbs, cane twigs, zircon fruits;
    • Taste
      Kräfitg and youthful! Bamboo, oak, citrus, dry, rum rather discreet; Much more supple with water and with much more tropical fruit accents;
    • Finish
      Strong, warming, herbaceous, citrus and oak;
