  1. Whiskydudes scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Were to start...? I do understand the low ratings as well as the high ones. I’ll explain myself; if you’re not familiar with grains and you don’t know they require a sh**load of time and warmth from your hand you end up rating this low 80 ties. But...., if you give this dram warmth and time it starts to open up, but just a bit. In my case, 2nd dram after over a month this bottle is open, I couldn’t get past the alcohol even after over 2 hours. So, and I almost never add water, I added some water. Tada; that’s the magic trick with this little baby! You do get past the alcohol and suddenly this dram comes alive! Nose; gone is the overwhelming glue scent, yes, still there, but with water you do get trough the glue. Yes, the port cask is present, but not overpowering, I do understand why Whisky Druid botteled this dram. Dark overripe blue and blackberries, leathery and just a sniff fresh tobacco. Taste; the overripe fruits are still present, tobacco has left the building and the alcohol tries to get back in control. Luckily it doesn’t succeeds and lingers away. Finish; rather short (makes sense) and get’s a bit sharp. Not too sharp, it’s on the edge. Overall with a finish that would have been on the same level as nose and taste I would rate this 89.
