    I had all 3 GAs of the Virgin Oak Series in my glass at the same time, they are quite different, but nobody really convinced me - I have a hard time with Virgin Oak
    • Nose
      83 83
      at first rather closed - perfumed soap, grape marc, in the background a light note of cheese
    • Taste
      82 82
      Ripe hazelnuts - hot, sour, soapy, lavender bubble bath, milk cream filling of a children's bar - fills the mouth with a full-bodied sugar sweetness
    • Finish
      85 85
      surprisingly long, nutty, dry fruit sweetness, oak-spicy

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    malty sweetness, a little bubble gum, a little wood
    a little spice second, a little toasted, wood shavings, more subtle, less fruity
    mouth:
    explosion of spices on the palate, tannin, dry wood, liquorice, a little orange zest,
    vanilla then, a little caramel, the spices come back, in fact a bubbly sensation with scents undifferentiated compared to the 2 other Spanish and French virgin.
    final:
    monolithic, vanilla, woody.
    • Finish
      18-month finish in virgin American barrels
      to note capacity to date of 100,000 barrels.
      2nd dram more spicy and in the vein of a blended with leveling of flavors.

    Tønden online tasting.
    Golden. Sweet malty, white pepper, vanilla, light spicy. Light body.

  6. Highlander65 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Chinquapin is an American oak, which grows particularly in Missouri and gives a spicy flavor to the whisky. This whisky ages most of the time in ex bourbon casks and for the last 18 months in chinquapin virgin oak
    • Nose
      vinous, very fragrant, sweet and spicy, creamy, very reminiscent of rye whisky, gum, licorice, lots of banana
    • Taste
      very spicy, sweet, creamy and fruity
    • Finish
      very spicy (paprika) and creamy
