  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I was real skeptical when I read about this 5-year-old wine cask matured whisky, but it simply works.
    • Nose
      The wine maturation is very obvious and it almost has something fizzy to it. Very interesting. It certainly doesn't nose very young, but the again the spirit is masked quite a bit by the cask. Somewhat floral with hints of violets, but there's also cranberry, pomegranate and blackcurrant. Some baking spices also.
    • Taste
      Very fruity and sweet (toffee), with hints of pineapple, mango, kumquat and apricots, and it has that fizzy quality again. Notes of cinnamon and almonds too, but also some chili heat.
    • Finish
      Lingering sweetness and a whiff of spices.
