6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.81 points
- SMELL freshly felled oak, flowery and floral, damp moss, coniferous forest. TASTE soft and smooth, fine cream chocolate, orange jam, oak wood. long, fresh finish with a hint of maple syrup and cappuccino, with a fine hint of mint at the end.
- Blender Glass
Directly very, very powerful and lush, blatantly intense and still very compact. A juicy piece of caramel, dripping honeycombs, overripe banana in the back. A nice, fat grain, which you can also notice the bourbon ripening. With water comes a little more fruit, grain and wood. Not 100% of my profile today and minimal lack of complexity, but still a wonderful part.
Wow, slow approach, almost disappointing at the beginning, but then it spreads more and more and stays really long, a bit floral on the palate. Great interplay between sweetness, wood, then grain note again.
Stays for a long time and with tingling caramel pudding.

- A sugar bomb of a whisky that's basically like drinking liquefied shortbread. Nothing wrong with that, but I do like a grain with a bit more nuance, for example the fruitier Mr. Grain 42yo (90pts.) that I compared this one to.
IMO the 95 and 93 point reviews are overly generous. This is a typical good old grain that would usually net an 88-90 point average on this site.
Plenty of vanilla and oak, and sugar. A bit of dryness from the tannins, but there aren't that many tertiary cask notes here apart from the plain oak. Quite grainy. With water it stays sugary and vanilla-ed. The nose is nice, but it is a bit tiring since it doesn't change much with time or water.
Lots of quality vanilla, a bit of perfume, neapolitan wafers, soft old oak, a whisper of ethanol, and cartloads of various shortbread cookies. There is a bit of fruitiness behind all the vanilla and sugar, but I'm left hoping for something more, like some clear bourbon notes or a stronger oak bite, or something.
Long, sugary, and full of vanilla. Slightly too sweet for me.
