  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Out of curiosity I wanted to try the result of this collaboration between 2 big names in the industry. I was able to order a tasting set with all of the bottlings in this range they did together. I do have some sympathy for the year 1988, I wonder why...
    • Nose
      A typical grain nose. A lot of glue and although it’s in the glass for about an hour already, the glue stays quite present. As with most grains also this one is soft and sweet. It gives ripe mango, banana, licorice candy and the usual suspects like vanilla and honey. The brandy butt did add flavor but it doesn’t give a lot of thrilling new sensations. Something I did expect actually.
    • Taste
      Sweet, very sweet. A tad bitter but friendly and subtle all the way. It offers a creamy and mature mouthfeel. A lot of toffee, honey, caramel toppings and vanilla ice cream. There is also a clear brandy taste here. It reminds me of aged genever quite a bit.
    • Finish
      In the medium-long finish this aged genever influence continues. It becomes very grainy and quite alcoholic as well. It becomes a bit too bitter/tart. Not something I’d buy. Maybe it’s pleasant for others, to me it seems this cask has been very interesting in terms of profit mainly.

  3. Ruisdael scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    84/100 due to aftertaste. Nose and taste certainly around 85/86/100. Bananas, toffee and sweet. Delicious on the nose and nice and sweet in the finish. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you have an after dinner party. Aftertaste is moderate in terms of duration and whiskey layers ....
