  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    We tasted this one h2h with the standard 10yo. We all were surprised with this one. It is better then the 10yo, yet a way lower rating.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet and fresh. Hint of red fruit, hay and some coal-smoke.
      There is a very clear bourbon influence with cream, caramel and fudge. But also a good hint of the sherry influence. Quite a good nose.
    • Taste

      Sweet, a little nip of the alcohol. Again some smoke, but not much of a classic peated whisky. It is very subtle. It has again clear bourbon barrel notes, and the sherry is in the background.
    • Finish

      Medium length. Here it is where the sherry starts the show. Very clear sherry notes. In the end a tad bitter with clear wood notes.

  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I’d wish they took this expression as an core range product. I like it a lot!
    • Nose
      It gives a fresh and fruity nose as well as a more heavy nose with earthy flavors. Very complex and very tastefull stuff! Something is happening and changing constantly. Fresh apples and pears as well as dark chocolate with a hint of pure cocoa, Milk and pine tree. With water some sweet Candy also appears.
    • Taste
      Gentle at 52.2%. Creamy, waxy and fat bodied. I tend to have the idea that spirit and cask influences are in great harmony at this point. Easy on the water, it’s rather fragile. Vanilla and honey dominate the palate. There is also some pine again.
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish which is constantly changing. Some as on the nose, again I get some fresh , fruity flavors as well as more heavier notes. There is almost an eucaliptic kind of twist at the end. Very pleasant!

  3. Erik1908 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A score of 73,21 is imho not fair. Tasted this whisky h2h with the 10 year old (94420), and the Preludium is for sure the winner. Yes it needs some time and more then a few drops of water, but then the Preludium opens up nicely. This could be a really good whisky when left in the cask for 10+ years.
