  1. AXEoftheNORTH scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    Aroma: Creamy and sweet with butterscotch, candied orange and apple, vanilla and oak.
    Taste: Balanced and spicy with honey, citrus, raisins and caramel.
    Finish: Long, warming and dry with sweet notes.

  2. MackenzieOB95 scored this whisky 74 points Member Senior

    Nose: The cask aroma comes through strong. Very much a sherry/malty smell with hints of citrus.

    Palate: Smoky and a little oily to me. Oaky flavor comes through with hints of syrup and vanilla.

    Finish: Smokiness lingers and sweetness is just on the tail end. The vanilla and citrus are more prominent here than on the palate.

    Overall Score: 74. I don’t hate it. I wouldn’t turn down a glass. But the sherry cask flavor is just not my go-to. Kinda leaves a taste in my mouth that feels like it’s trying a little too hard to impress.
