  1. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Delicious bourbon barrel aging, but unspectacular, 22 years of aging are not necessarily recognizable
    • Nose
      78 78
      Typical bourbon barrel, grain, citrus, alcohol noticeable despite 43%,
    • Taste
      86 86
      Citrus, caramel, apple, cereals, malt sugar, quite sweet, pleasant, later a little spice
    • Finish
      81 81
      Spicy and red sweet apple again, rather restrained, medium length, but a little lacking in intensity when you take the age into account

  3. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    blind tasting:

    Delicious, fruity, but also weak and somehow irrelevant.
    • Nose
      light and fruity, pineapple, kiwi, pears, sugary, minimal lemon, no smoke, a little overripe gooseberry, no wood, little mineral
    • Taste
      Sugary, pear, apples, fondant, buttery mouthfeel, kiwi, no alcohol recognizable, fine barley
    • Finish
      short, fruity, a little bit of overripe gooseberry, pear, zero oak, sugary, delicately malty, somewhat mineral

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very nicely balanced and fruity nose, which even has very nice tropical notes. Very gentle, no alcohol noticeable. Vanilla, lime, ripe light grapes, mango, tropical fruit wine gum, apple, moisturizer with aloe.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sparkling start, slightly creamy and also quite fruity. Citrus notes, pear apple, vanilla, caramel, delicate oak.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Rather short. Pear, cane sugar, caramel, heather honey.

      After the resolution: Here I am very surprised about the old age. He hides that pretty well. I had guessed him a lot younger. But I think it's delicious, although I wouldn't like to spend more than 60€ for what's on offer here.

  8. Bene37 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose: lovely, floral, perfume note, pear, vanilla, grapes, tangerine

    Palate: mild and round, vanilla, pear, grapes, tangerine

    Finish: medium length and warm, pear, tangerine, some oak spice

    Rating: lovely, mild, easily digestible. Vanilla, pears, grapes and tangerines dominate the picture. All in all a nice whisky (in the sense of boring). He would probably have done better at cask strength, so he lacks that certain something. It's a shame, it actually seems to have matured quite well.

    84/100 or 5/10

  9. Gloin scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    very pleasing, tasty, but also meaningless, I like to drink it, but it doesn't stick in my memory, more expressive in the second sip

    blind tasting
    • Nose
      Lemon, pear, white wine, parsley
    • Taste
      Mild attack, sweet and sour, grapes, grain, little oak
    • Finish
      sweet, a hint of oak, some grape juice

  10. 67conrad67 scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Odour: according to defensive bouquet, yellow fruits, pome fruit, pear, according to grainy, citrus tones,

    Taste: sweetish basic tone, yellow fruit again, malty note, apple, fine woody spice, medium flavor. Reverberation, becoming spicier

    Colour: brightening yellow gold, medium. water's edge, clear

    Conclusion: Classic bourbon cask aging, quite pleasant to drink - but it should be a little more complex considering the advanced age ...
