    What a dram. The nose is absolutely marvellous and rich, with several layers, it’s so good you might want to nose this for hours. On the palate, the 55% abv are perfectly tame so you don’t need to add water at all. It’s rich and flavourful, but maybe the oak was a bit too present for my taste. And finally the finish is warm and long. This dram is really really good, too bad I had so little to taste. The bottle wouldn’t be that expensive (around 650€ on LMDW and a steeper £680 on Master of Malt) for my budget, I’d definitively buy one. Unfortunately for me, it’s not. A damn shame, I really would have loved a bottle of what those damn Greedy Angels deigned to leave in the cask after those 10 years of maturation.

      Vanilla, honey and caramel appear immediately, quite strongly. Then, the nose evolves to some kind of sponge cake with orange juice, toffee and custard cream. The nose is really rich, you could spend hours nosing this before wanting to take a sip (I’m kidding, you definitely can’t wait to take a sip). There’s also a tropical fruity side to it, with pineapple, mango and maybe a very light touch of bananas. Water provides notes of cherry and sultanas.
    • Taste

      The arrival is a bit sweet and spicy, with a silky mouthfeel, but after a few seconds the spice level raises a bit. Pepper is a bit prickling on the tongue without being aggressive. There’s a noticeable oak flavour present without being overpowering, with a bitterness like a dark chocolate with a very high percentage of cocoa. Caramel and ginger follow when the bitterness quiets down, with a very discrete touch of honey. With reduction, the palate is fruitier and more velvety, with a touch of citrus on top of blood oranges.

      A bit woody, with honey and dark chocolate, leaving a nice warmth on the tongue and the throat for a long time.

    This was wonderful and really set right my previous, slightly disappointing, experience with Amrut’s Greedy Angels. While the 10 year peated ex-sherry edition did not match my admittedly lofty expectations, this was absolutely what I hoped it would be. It was rich and bold in flavor, slightly dry from sustained wood contact in a hot environment, and with a finish that = lasted and lasted. There was so much complexity to sift through in the dram, that I could easily sit with a single pour all night just watching different layers of flavor surface.

    Mental Image: Chocolate Roastery.

      Sweet aroma of brown sugar, honeycomb, and rum raisin cake. Beyond rich sugars lies eucalyptus, toasted oak, and floral cardamom and cinnamon. Dried antiques, spicy cinnamon, and rosin reinforce the woody aroma.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Lovely thick body that gives way to the dryness of cinnamon powder. Sweet oily spices cover the palate; tobacco leaf, cinnamon, ground ginger, honey, black pepper, and cocoa. The chocolate builds turning toward dark roasted cocoa pods or nibs. A bit of bitter herbs, pressed flowers, and menthol come along with some melon and funnel cake near the finish.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Lingering old pipe and spun sugar.

  5. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 69 points Expert Junior

    Nose: waxy texture, coconut oil, egg pancakes, baked cakes, toasted nuts.

    Drink: Oil, tannins, and burning sensation all the way to the throat, tropical fruits, oak, coconut oil, honey.

    Overall: There is a hint of over oak, but the fusion of the body needs to be increased.
