    Tasted this dram during a tasting with only new distilleries like Clydeside, Ardnamurchan and more... This one surprised me the most; complex and warm, welcoming, layered. Really full and clever with coffee, carrot, sweets, biscuits but also something animal-like. Wauw. Unfortunately very expensive for a rather young dram.

      Emulsive, fatty nose with a lot of sweetness, coffeee, sherry and even a bit of carrot(cake)? Thick. Nice. Reminds me of the famous Mokatine-caramellas (candy). Hidden hint of sherry. Even a bit of cherries... Bit animal too... Lovely!

      Warm entry with a lot of caramel, sweets, yeast and roasted wheat (cereal-like). A lot of complexity in the layers of sugar; sand coockies, soldier biscuits, pastry, cacao? The animal influences seem to stay, sheltering amongst the other tastes.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Wheat and cereals stay. Bresilienne. Transforming into the full taste of nuts. Dry. Sackcloth (jute). Hint of metal. Medium long finish with a decent complexity. I'm very surprised! Wauw!

    Unusual taste profile that I always like to come back to. Overall, a very creditable publication with a complexity that is convincing for a three-year-old.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Characteristic fresh, but at the same time somewhat (but not unpleasant!) Musty nose (worn out card game?), Boiled plums / plums, candied cherries, pineapples, rusks, discreetly rancid butter
    • Taste
      84 84
      The mentioned aromas appear complete, sweet full-bodied antrite, the somewhat rancid Mirabelle note, then an abrupt change to a dryness with peppery notes
    • Finish
      83 83
      Dry, rather short to medium length.

    • Nose
      83 83
      sweet cherries with notes of vanilla, fudge, with a slight spiciness.
    • Taste
      85 85
      wonderfully balanced sweet and spicy aromas with roasted fruits. The sweetness and fruitiness remain in the foreground for a while, plus some cocoa and caramelized biscuit.
    • Finish
      83 83
      characterizes malty sweetness, biscuit and sherry flavors that develop into a spicy pepperiness with cinnamon.

  6. 88bamboo did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The dominant dark fruits are sweet but not cloying or aggressive, and is nicely complimented by the bready and earthly flavours with a satisfyingly rich mouthfeel. There are no bold flavours that stick out, but there is substantially more complexity than expected from this NAS expression.

    Have this with some brioche French toast with brown sugar and cranberry sauce. I also imagine you would like this if you would enjoy a ginger spice latte on a cold rainy day at a Starbucks.

    • Nose
      In the glass, the liquid is a nice amber-gold, a sign of considerable oloroso and PX cask influence for a younger whisky? The whisky somewhat clings to the sides of the nosing glass as I swirl the stuff, and appears quite dense and viscous.

      On the nose, a delightful burst of flowers, berries and jam! Very forthcoming and rich notes of cherry, strawberry, orange and fresh apricot. The berries and jam really take centre stage, but I could pick up some bready notes in the background of vanilla, Marks & Spencer’s tea biscuits, honey and cinnamon spice. I could definitely pick up both the sherry and bourbon maturation, although the sherry is more dominant.
    • Taste
      The first sip is sweet and rich with dark fruits, berries and jam recognizable from nosing. I get cherry, strawberry jam and orange marmalade, nicely warm with a little more heat than expected - the PX cask maturation clearly coming through. There is breadiness- vanilla, spice and even some smoke and burnt toast accompanying the dark fruits- but the dark fruits remain dominant. Some subtle oak and leathery notes now come through, although there are no overwhelming tannins, which are responsible for that dry puckering taste that some wines have (I am personally not a fan of too much tannins in my sherried whiskies). The dark fruits are nicely balanced with the breadiness and not too sweet. The texture is nicely smooth and somewhat waxy with medium density, which allows the flavours, heat and spice to coat your tongue and linger longer.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium length, with the jammy sweetness fading to a warming chocolatey character with pepper and spice.

    Nose: sweet, reminds me of a cherry jam I recently had, vanilla, custard, a little wood comes with it. If I take the glass a little further away I have these Haribo cherries. ????

    Mouth: fruity, something burned down, now cocoa, does that come from the chocolate malt used? At the end some pastries.

    Finish: slightly peppery, spicy, sherry tones. In the end, a nice warmth remains in the chest.

    The 46.5% vol. Are great, very pleasant, almost elegant.
