  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I like it best on its own. More likely to lose from water.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Apple pie, caramel, marzipan, brown sugar, blueberries and blackberries. Hardly any alcohol.

      The whisky flattens with water.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Caramel and Caramelized Nuts and Almonds. Dates. Black pepper and roasted barley.

      Here, too, I find it better and more concentrated without water.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The peppery note remains. Plus Nutella on toast and coffee. Toasted aromas. Medium to long finish.

  6. thijs100 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Not a classic sherry bomb by anyone's standards (there are bourbon casks in the mix after all), but a flavourful whisky with subtle sherry influences.
    • Nose
      A touch of copper, some vanilla and a fair amount of Greek yoghurt and lemon. Pretty fresh at first, but it slowly moves into a territory of fudge, brown butter and gingerbread. Maybe some porridge too, and finally even a whiff of elderflower.
    • Taste
      Nice oily mouthfeel, but also quite some oak spices like cloves, nutmeg and pepper. There's sweet toffee, sultana, caramel and vanilla notes, as well as a slight acidity. It's has a bread-y and malty quality too. The spices are pretty prevalent though.
    • Finish
      Lingering notes of barley husks, brown sugar and and walnuts. Pretty long.

  7. Nazin scored this whisky 74 points Expert Junior

    Simple, not too complex dram with a lot of sweetness.

  8. sarthur71 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Young, simple, somewhat angular, sherry-caramel. The aroma is noticeably better than the taste.
