  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Thoughts: (88/100) The winner amongst the group that was there. It is good, but maybe a little spicy for my tastes. Not “old school sherry”, but certainly a lot of cask influence. My preference leans more to ex-bourbon, so take it for what it’s worth

    As promising as the nose was, the palate couldn't quite keep up. A lovely dram nonetheless, with a bit of a challenge thrown in, which I do not mind at all.
    • Nose
      Slightly shy at first, with only mild cinnamon and notes of stewed apples popping up. After a little while I get burlap, some brown sugar and hints of tobacco too, as well as a good amount of (dried) red fruit. It does get more fresh as well, with a hint of green apples and a nice acidity.
    • Taste
      Creamy and mouth-coating in texture, there's some fruit (bitter oranges), and there's an earthiness too, followed by spices (think cloves and nutmeg) and oak. Quite dry. Water suppresses the spices, and brings out a more herbacious side, as well a bit of cherry syrup.
    • Finish
      Drying, with a touch of menthol and coriander.
