  1. Whisky_Funeral scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Spirit driven and the 3 bourbon casks haven't been very active.

    However in this instance I think this marriage has worked very well.

    Plenty of fun to be had with the nose, searching out the light complexities of the casks and the character of the spirit with some water.

    Recommended if you are a fan of the distillery and want to get to know it outside of the official range.

    • Nose

      Rather young and spirity nose, quite sharp actually. Some vanilla coming trough, reminds me a bit of creme brûlée. A fair hint of peat as well. The nose is dominated by unripe fruits like pears. Just bu the nose I would guess this is a very young whisky ... but in fact it seems to be 11 years.

      Quite spirity as well, some sweetness coming tough. A quite sour note as well ... like sour candy. Again a clear note of some hard unripe pears. The hint of peat is now really subtile
    • Finish
      80 80
      The finish is really short and consists mainly of unripe pears and a wiff of vanilla. Nothing too spectaculair.
