  1. Nergal did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: Fresh tangerines and apricots were hot on the trail after a spicy start with ginger, cardamom and cloves. On the palate neat soft and velvety but at the same time the sweet dryness of an Oloroso Sherry. The flavours of oranges, plums and cranberries as well as candied lemon peel and roasted walnuts – all very well balanced. Diluted, aromas of stewed dark fruits sprinkled with brown sugar were followed by truffle butter and dried tea leaves. A wonderful oily, mouth-coating texture like an orange liqueur with honey roasted nuts in the finish. At fifteen years of age we combined two 2nd fill bourbon barrels, originally filled on the same day, into a 1st fill PX butt.

    Is it outstanding? Hard to tell...

    This is a case where I would prefer to score this whisky with a range (88-91) - because I haven't been able to make my mind up.

    The nose is complex, with caramel, candied orange, toasted oak, vanilla essence, madeira cake, and hazelnut liqueur.

    The palate shows a slightly more marked PX influence (stewed fruit, mincemeat) but broadly is in like with the pastry/baking characteristics from the nose. The alcohol is well integrated.

    A touch more intensity would have boosted the score - on the whole though this is a whisky that has 'stood up' to PX finishing and has come out the other end as a very attractive & fairly complex & well-balanced malt.
