  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur


    Sweet malt with a lot of sticky honey is immediately in the jar. There is also leather, old sherry, waxy vanilla aromas, orange liqueur and very little seasoning. Overall, subtle, soft and harmonious on the nose.
    Thick, waxy, fresh and now a bit more spicy. Then it becomes bitter-herbaceous-bitter, but the sweet part starts at the same time. The notes of leather, malt, caramel, sugar liqueur, honey, sweet bread, cereals, liquorice, wood, chocolate, espresso and mocha fit and sound good, unfortunately however, do not hide the overall uneven impression.
    Medium length - now the sweetness slowly disappears and the wood becomes more intense. Fine hazelnut notes emerge and let the finish with vanilla and malt fade away a little more conciliatory.

    ‘Quite a mishmash’
    N: Dark rich gold in colour - so either theres an abundance of super old stuff in here or the E150a has been up to its old tricks, or hopefully a combination of both. Nosing then we have another ‘rugged’ performer with plenty of soft but astringent grain showing. Butterscotch, E150a, rolling tobacco, nutty honey and sherry notes are prevalent in the main, with the more delicate aromas lost to the harsher spirit. Worth spending time with it though.
    T: Quite a mishmash - bitter, oaky, oily, malty, fresh. Its certainly enjoyable enough despite its heaviness but the clogging bitters may drain your enthusiasm eventually. With water, more dried fruits reveal themselves at the beginning before that harshness comes forth once more.
    F: The diminuendo into the finish makes everything more approachable. Bitter/sour meets sweet/savoury toffee malt with a mixture of oaky, herbal, nutty aniseed, sherried, orange oils with butterscotch marmalade. Dusty remnants.
    C: Rough around the edges but containing enough depth and intensity for an interesting, idiosyncratic and enjoyable if tiring journey. Mainly i like this because its different.
