  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very nice matured whisky. Although 7yo it is very tasty. Something different as your regular Scotch. I tasted some of Paul John at some festivals, but never this quality!

      Very herbal, little fruity and a touch of honey. There is a lot of spices like five spice and cardamom in here. But there is a mint note too.
      With water: More dark spices, mint note is gone.

      Very sweet arrival, you would say it is a bourbon. Loads of spices and sweetness.
      With water: Milder, but still loads of sweet caramel and a touch of vanilla coming in. A bit of wood in here too.

      Long length. A tad bitter, but fades away with some coal smoke and caramel sweetness.
      With water: More smokey. And a little more fruity notes.

    Blind tasting of a sample, I took it for a Kilkerran. Especially the taste is very Campbeltownish. Unbelievable that the final location of maturation would do all that.
    • Nose
      Blueberry, caramel, smoke. Later kaki and a little custard.
    • Taste
      Peat, mango and caramel.
    • Finish
      Mango, peat and dark chocolate.

  7. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this before in October 2018. The extra 6 to 8 months have worked wonders. The cask matures in Campbeltown now for about 2 years and this altered it completly if I take regular single cask bottlings from Paul John into account.
    If all casks behave like this, there would be merit to do this kind of double continent maturation.
    A fantastic complex dram that I look forward to explore deeper at our whisky club (probably I will not get much time for this...).

    Strawberry jam, spices, tape and salt. How cool! Big Malt!
