  1. SAND scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    (Tasted blind, 20.05.2020)
    APPEARANCE: Deep gold, towards pale brown colour. High viscosity, thick, slow legs.
    NOSE: A lot of sweet oak wood, intense and a bit one dimensional but quite pleasant. Vanilla, banana, saw mill, new and old sawdust mixed, XO cognac and marzipan. With a few drops of water; some additional tea notes. In the empty glass there are also orchard fruit notes (86-87p)
    TASTE: Medium viscosity, some black pepper, honey, mild woodiness. Warming. With a few drops of water; mint (83p)
    FINISH:   Wood spice; black pepper tannins, sweetness. With a few drops of water; chewing saw dust. (84p)
    OVERALL: I think this is fairly young but is not raw anymore and has had some intense wood maturation. Virgin oak and/or first fill Bourbon? 43-46% ABV? Total score 84-85 points.

    • Nose
      80 80
      Salty, some sherry, sweet fruit and toast with a hint of smoke. A bit of alcohol smell.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Quite salty, with some unwanted wet cardboard, a bit bitter.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fresh sherry with plums lingers surprisingly long considering its young age. Vague butter towards the end?
