  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Complexity is what I'm looking for — and getting. Lots of vanilla sweetness, but also luscious red forest fruits and fragrant floral notes, all supported by a touch of almonds, milk chocolate and sugared cereals. There's something new here each time. Now stone fruits like nectarines begin to assert their influence, with just a touch of beeswax. Fascinating doesn't begin to describe this.
    • Taste
      A sweet arrival and a great oily, chewy mouthfeel. It is a tad dry, but never too much. Plenty of red fruits again, accompanied by port stewed pears and pear skin. Touches of honey, caramel and milk chocolate. Very rich and rewarding.
    • Finish
      More of the above, but now also slightly grassy. Medium in length.

    Incredibly rich and complex! Harmonious flavour profile with tones of grain, fruit and even a small whiff of rancio. The ABV is well integrated with the flavours and it creates a creamy and smooth mouthfeel, all be it with slight dry edges. Great dram that proves that Waterford knows damn well what they're doing!

      Sweetness of vanilla, cacao butter and caramel fudge. Slightly nutty with almonds, but also some dried fig and barley notes, with a slight whiff of peach to top it off.

      The palet is sweet at first with vanilla again and the characteristic cacao note. Some more peach notes, caramel, wood and a whiff of nuts.

      Lovely cacao butter note again with a touch of dried fig.
