  1. avansele scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      87 87
      The nose starts of with dark chocolate, dried apricots and raisins. The nose is quite winey ... pineaux de charentes style. Some orange zeste on the background with a hint of white pepper.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Exactly what i suspected ... sweet winey taste with a serious spicyness to it. Think of red curry, gingerbread and even some nutmeg. Also some green apples in there and a hint of pineapple.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is more dark bitter chocolate with something nutty and even a whiff of fresh tobacco.

    SMWS notes:

    The nose had mainly cereal and chocolate notes – chocolate malt and granola with dark chocolate nibs – also raisin fudge, chocolate gingers and tea chests. The palate had winey touches (Campari, Fernet Branca) but it was mainly spicy – liquorice root, nutmeg, anise, ginger snaps; Moffat toffees, dried dates and leather. The reduced nose – burnt raisins in cake, dried apricot, Branston pickle and marigolds. The palate now had toffee apple and treacle tart with the warmth of gingerbread and chilli roasted peanuts; leather and tobacco to finish. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood we transferred this to a charred red wine first-fill barrique.
