  1. Arquebus scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Elegant sherried whisky. Tasted at the Ardshiel Hotel which had just won 'Whisky Bar of the Year' title. Apparently this cask was distributed amongst the shortlisted bars.
    Classic old style sherried profile; with rich toffee, baked fruits, Tunnock's chocolate and caramel wafers and a lick of elegant oak spices (cedar/ pencil shavings). Nice whiff of very delicate 'mainland' peat too, in the style of burnt paper edging a christmas cake? Elegant and smooth (am I allowed to say smooth these days? - ok 'rounded'!, poised and balanced. An island Malt which'll meet a cognac head on and come out tops....
