  1. maltandgrains scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Sharp and spirited nose. Sweet fruit, and lots of it. Sout taste, though fruity. The finish just keeps on going and going, with old wood and spices.

  2. MaltNerd scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A great expression of high-quality bourbon barrels.

    SMWS notes:

    The delicate sweet floral aroma of an old-fashioned lady’s perfume together with a dusty wardrobe made out of exotic hard wood set the scene for us. However, the palate neat was very different; very lively with a sweet and sour flavour combination entwined with spicy star anise and a liquorice aftertaste. A drop of water and a fresher floral sweetness appeared, combined with ripe strawberries and pineapple slices in syrup. On the palate now less surprising, a fresh fruit salad (strawberry, pineapple, mango and orange) seasoned with cinnamon, cayenne pepper, nutmeg and chilli powder turned it into a serious flavour bomb.
