  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 83 points Specialist

    Always eager to try anything new, especially from new distilleries.
    The opportunity to try this came in a sample bottle from karloff.
    For a young "spirit" I have to say this is promising stuff.
    • Nose
      83 83
      A sweet fruit mix where I really can't separate to many of them.
      A few nice red ones, those candied cocktail sherries, but also green unripe banana skin.
      It might be the red wine cask influence, as I find it to smell more like port wood than sherry.
      Some fresh oak tannins giving away the youth, like it's not quite integrated yet, but from the nose I have to say this is well on the way to become good whisky.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A very good, almost perfect follow up to the nose.
      Very well ballanced. If this is blended from several types of casks as indicated, the blending is truely master class.
      As on the nose the taste is fruity and sweet, round pleasant texture and a little build up of spice at the end.
      It may not be too exciting but it has a consistancy and progression that is just right.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium lenght, mainly on fruit.
      Again just what you would expect.
      Maybe a little "dry patch" on the very end of it.

    I am quite impressed by this young English whisky. Only about 5 months off being a legal single malt. Keep this up and the future is bright. Look forward to tasting some of their future bottlings.
    • Nose
      85 85
      A nice fruity nose, it's like when you open a tin of fruit cocktail. Custard cream biscuits, banana flavoured sweet, mango chunks, melon and apricot yogurt. For such a young whisky it is throwing a lot out and there are no off notes to speak of. In fact it smells a lot older than it is.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The first thing that hits me is the creamy texture and at 46% it sits well with the other notes.You get all the flavours first then the 46 hits you with a punchy fruity sting. Back to that tin of fruit cocktail, it's like taking a swig of the juice from the can. Again this tastes a lot older than it is.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish I must say is long and lasting. The tongue is tingling and those fruit notes remain for a long time. I get some sort of icing sugar on the death.
