  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [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.
    • Nose
      89 89
      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.

      fruity candy, little acidulated, glue, encaustic
      some caramel, wax, chocolate
    • Taste
      malt, alcohol, sweet spices,
      woody and some leather
      the sweetness of honey, nuts
      a bouquet of embalming dried flowers
      it's pastry, creamy
    • Finish
      on the leather, the wood, the sweet side of the mixed aromas, on the same ones with appreciable duration, honor to the nose however!
