    [November, 2018] Usually Cadenhead releases exceptional casks in its "Single Cask" series...

    ...and this is a good but not an exceptional one, according to my taste buds (only). It is easy sippable and enjoyable when in good company but it is not suited for intellectual "whisky analysis paralysis". ...hey, what is whisky made for? By the way, I bought this bottle for 107 Euro.

      The colour is burnished and the nose offers a bold old style fruity and toffee-driven profile that is very delicious. No off-note that I can find but it is not the most complex nose either, nevertheless it is very delicious and tasty.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste is fruity-sweet and bitter-spicy with some honey and nutty flavours (almonds). It is not really layered and rather simple but very quaffable, for sure. Water releases more aromas both in the nose and taste, I like this dram best when reduced to about 43% abv.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with minor peppery moments. The finish is medium to long and adds more spicy flavours to the taste with an increasingly bitter ending (tannins). But luckily this vanishes with the reduced dram.

    (Tasted blind)
    APPEARANCE: Medium deep golden colour.
    NOSE: Very fruity with citrus fruits, cantaloupe and mango. (87-88p).
    TASTE: The arrival is very citrusy and fruity, like chewing on a ripe lemon. On the mid palate the citrus show goes on; lemon and lime juice, moroccan preserved lemons and its brine, lemon liqueur, citric acid, dried lemon peel. And on and on it goes. Plus; I like it. But is it very whisky like (?). This has got to be a very particular single cask (it screams SMWS fun all the way) and unless that cask previously held undiluted fresh lemon juice, it must be an ex bourbon cask. The alcohol is hardly noticeable in this citrus drink, but by the undiluted intensity of the nose, I would guess it to be at cask strentgh, around 55-56% ABV. (88-89 malt whisky points, however I rate it 95 points on the lemon liqueur scale;).
    EXIT: More citrus, a little white bepper, dried ginger perhaps, and more lemony citrus goodness. (88-89p).
    OVERALL: What a splendid lemon liqueur whisky this is! TOTAL SCORE 88 points as a whisky. 94 points though as a lemon liqueur ;)

  6. NectarSong scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Smell is very obvious fruit peel taste, boiled pear, peach peel, very comfortable honey and fruit candy, make people feel happy

    In the taste, the alcohol has little stimulation and shows excellent softness. The fruit and the barrel mingled with a little pudding.

    The ending rhyme is wonderful, long, and more fruity, with spices emerging, increasing complexity
