- Combination of 80% ex-bourbon casks and 18% STR casks (red wine casks that are shaved, toasted, re-charred), as well as a tiny portion of virgin oak casks.
Fresh, fruity (peaches, apples), honey, vanilla, spicy (nutmeg), red wine
Fruity (oranges, apples), honey, spicy (nutmeg, clove, pepper), grainy
Medium long, grassy, spicy
Light fruit basket; Vanilla; Honey; light herbs, alcoholic note; slight acidic note in the background
Fruity; light oak; clearly milder and more pleasant than the smell suggests; the wine is very subtle in the background, gets a little stronger over time; a light nut is added; after the first sip, marzipan is now also on the palate, have a hint of citrus
Immediately marzipan, wow, I wouldn't have expected it, nut, but marzipan clearly in the front, nut always comes through and lasts
- Certainly not a bad single malt and it’s quite full of flavour, although it lacks some balance on some points. Maybe a tad too much oak? But all in all a nice first introduction to M&H.
Strange smell at first. It seems a little out of balance. But this changes when you leave it to stand for a bit. A floral note, which quickly goes towards wine gums. Honey. And some fruit, such as red apples, oranges but also a hint of blueberries and red grapes. A hint of oak later on, which is followed by caramel and marzipan. Plasticine in the background.
Honey here as well and it’s somewhat oaky. This is followed by oranges. A hint of vanilla and some caramel too. Then plenty of spices, such as nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.
Somewhat short with mostly oak and spices.
- There's some oomph here that often lacks in the entry-level expressions of other distilleries, but it also lacks just a touch of integration.
Soft floral notes at first, enhanced by a subtle fruitiness (red apple, peach and nectarine) and delicate sweetness (beeswax and honey). There's touches of oak shavings, but kept to a minimum.
Medium bodied with spicy notes (nutmeg and cloves), a whiff of oak, some faint notes of orange peel and honey, and finally a touch of cough syrup. Lacks a bit of integration.
Lingering spices and oak. Finally a whiff of apple. Short to medium in length.
