  1. mr_barleycorn scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      88 88
      Undiluted: strong alcohol, slightly stinging in the nose. But then honey, hot apricot jam, autumn leaves, pastries, ripe apples and herbs. Intense and full exBourbon nose. With water: fresher and finer than undiluted. Now with unripe banana and some peaches.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Strong, spicy, dry, tart fruits, ginger, walnuts, nutmeg and a good deal of honey. Less fruity than expected, but the honey and the spicy finish complement each other great. With a little water the painting becomes more pleasing. The ginger almost falls off and the honey becomes more intense. In addition, the fruit comes through more.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium. Prickles on the tongue until this time. Ginger stays when the malt is consumed undiluted. In addition, there are significant oak influence and continue the game of honey and spice

    Bottler's tasting notes:
    Colour: Dark gold.
    Aroma: Charming and fruity; pressed apple and fresh squeezed lime infuse with banana, dried apricot, and subtle pineapple; hints of vanilla, elderflower, and cocoa powder remain.
    Taste: Creamy, sweet ripe melon, nectarine, and banana abound. Red apple emerges and transforms into milk chocolate subtly highlighted by hints of oak.
    Finish: Long and intricate with bursts of pepper and mature oak.
