  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    N: I swear I smell sulfur... strawberries and cream, cotton candy, old mandarin orange peel, dirty milk chocolate, grease
    T: cherry licorice, creamy, whiff of smoke, bitter chocolate
    F: short flat finish, black licorice, bergamot

    Wow. I could have sworn this was a sherry cask... I maintain I smelled a touch of sulfur, but here we are. Weird one.

  3. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: A savoury-sweet creamy/soft cheesy, slightly salty bourbon number with age - slow yet sure. Seemingly more refined after a flight of five Tormore, though not without a similar malty, coppery sake-ish pong - albeit without the bready notes.  
    T: More slow yet sure ageing signs and again, cream cheese - this time as a mouthfeel. The creaking bourbon oak shows thereafter, promoting a firm bitter-sour fungal creaminess. Gets a bit more lively/spicy with water, so here, drinking neat worked out best.
    F: Firm woody sweet<sour with a damp/fungal sour depth and straight old charred oak. A putrid note at the death. 
    C: Being a touch sluggish perhaps, this is a decent enough performer without theatrics. The John Higgins of whisky perhaps.Scores a B-
