  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The body on this was just excellent and there was just enough spice and cream to keep the sweeter notes interesting. It was a great introduction to single grain and I can see how this would be an excellent ingredient in a blended scotch— mouthfeel, cream, florals, sweetness— this could add them all and maybe balance earthier or peatier notes.

    Mental Image: Blueberry pancakes.
    • Nose
      Caramel apples, rock sugar, and fragrant white pepper open up. There is a bit of earthy turmeric and creamy golden milk. Lovely sweet and spicy nose with just a hint of rubbing alcohol.
    • Taste
      Lovely creamy floral strawberries and blueberries come forward— it’s delicious strawberry shortcakes. The body is thick and syrupy, it completely coats the palate with honey and vanilla. Lovely spices complement the cream, fruit, and honey— floral coriander and black peppercorns.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering, sweet honeysuckle and fresh berries.
