  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I divided a sample over two drams tasting them a day apart. The initial dram was very sweet an fruity, the second dram however much more wood driven and a lot drier. Still very good though.

      A dry kind of smoke, quite nutty (some sugared peanuts), sweet vanilla and quite some fruitiness with dried apricot, pear and fresh plum, also slightly farmy and dusty. Adding somewater brings out a little more of the fruit notes.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Initially sweet, powerful and very peppery, dry peat, vanilla, oily, some fruite cake, mango, apricot and sugarbread. Water again emphasizes the fruitiness.
    • Finish

      Sweet vanilla and some syrupy fruit, a little bit of liquorice, ends really dry with lots of charred and ashy wood notes.

    It is of medium viscosity and its bouquet is of medium intensity. I have aromas of spicy oak, vanilla, salt, nuts and peat smoke. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.

    Tried this dram without water. Great second fill sherry monster. Absolutely perfect initial. At the end it get's a little bit dry but overall a great dram.
