  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 268 bottles from cask no. 10450
    This has come from, we believe, an American oak sherry hogshead given the range of flavours it displays. It is the colour of Golden Syrup, and the first impression on the nose is ‘ginger cake with Golden Syrup and whipped cream’. The latter grows more vanilla-like (dairy ice-cream), and the nose takes on a dry orange-peel note, with brittle toffee. Tasted straight, we found creamy caramel toffees, then a treacle-toffee bitterness. Water increases the caramel note and introduces a trace of tinned peaches and freshly ironed cotton. The taste now is very sweet, with a soft, rounded texture, bitter chocolate in the finish; somewhat gingery and tannic overall. A longish finish. An interesting example of the make.

  2. alectron scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    probably needs/better-with water, but haven't had enough to try around
    • Nose
      spirit ++, Sherry +, shoepolish o, tobacco o, vanilla o, old towels -, leatherpolish -. becomes a bit better after breathing for a bit.
    • Taste
      sharp spirit fighting with mellow wood, chocolate/carub on tip of tongue (dissapears into vanilla & comes back a bit later)
    • Finish
      short to medium, some nice wood notes in the end but also wine-y/ sour grape notes which I'm generally not really a fan os, but not much else than the spirit sticks around which is a shame.
