  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Must be quite a piece of work this one, with the nose the and body trying their best to give you a solid over-80 experience, until the sad and soulless finish, the booziness of which I have no explanation for, takes it down a few notches.
    • Nose
      Yeasty sherryness, with black cardamom seeds, and a mix of honey and powdered ginger. Some fattiness as well. If you've tried the younger Fine Oaks or the 12yo from a few years ago, you'll recognize the style. A bit of pepper mix there somewhere.
    • Taste
      Flat on the tongue, the 40 % vol. expressing its pervasive flabbiness. A superficial sherry sweetness, and some dessert cake sugariness & syrup. Feels coated, but the mouth is quite pleasant compared to the finish...
    • Finish
      ...which is a failure on all counts. Boozy at first, with some clear ethanol, and then coppery, with again that acrid dried ginger.
