  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    The best of this series of six single casks.
    • Nose
      Well-balanced and extremely approachable, this has some classic dunnage notes and furniture polish, as well as fresh fruits such as strawberry, raspberry and mandarin. Then there's mocha, warm chocolate brownie, and some baking spices as well. Very mature, but not at all oak-y.
    • Taste
      Mouthwatering and syrupy, with lots of little intricacies. Rum raisins, prunes and milk chocolate, all the while supported by a spicy layer of nutmeg and cracked black peppercorns. Incredibly vibrant after nearly four decades spent in the cask.
    • Finish
      Spicy, dry, and finally some cocoa powder. Long.
