  2. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A promising new initiative from 2 guys that have made their mark in the whisky industry. Curious to what they have to offer.
    • Nose
      Alcohol is quite prominent at first. Bittersweet and a wee dry. also rather closed. It needs a bit of water to be added. I get cherries, orange peel, some raisin, black tea and cocoa. It is a decent nose but nothing to remember tomorrow.
    • Taste
      Without water rather aggressive and restless. With water more creamy and pleasant. What I often experience with Macduff, I also experience with this one: It's too much middle of the road here. It offers a lot of usual suspects but I can't seem to find any specific characteristics.
    • Finish
      On the medium-short finish I get quite some dark chocolate, pralines stuffed with mocca cream, again cherries, vanilla and a caramel like sweetness.

      It is nice but rather middle of the road, not mind blowing.

  4. Ruisdael scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nice nose, especially with a drop of water. Blackberry, berries, dark cherries, red fruits. 87/100. Taste: Too high in the alcohol, therefore volatile. Flavor: 85/100. Finish: pepper. Nice highland finish. We do not experience the aftertaste as long. Not too sharp. The nose is very nice for young whisky. Good entry into the series. Nice series for autumn and winter.
