  2. Lorion scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Tasty and really good in the nose. Why does the palate just have to fall off like that? Like most Chamber bottlings, the alcohol is very poorly incorporated. 81 points.
    • Nose
      Creamy, floury apple. Butterscotch. Caramel, aromatic wood. Intense banana. Cinnamon pastry. Creme brulee. Hand warmth unfortunately elicits an alcohol sting. Water : softer, warmer, spicier. Honey is here now.
    • Taste
      Very sweet, but also pretty biting. The alcohol bites. Oak, banana, vanilla in the dessert.
      Water : Very creamy now, the alcohol is no longer a major disruptive factor. Well integrated, however, is something else. Dryness forms.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet and dry at the same time.
