  1. the_muskox scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    Not doing it for me. Tasted especially young. It’s not particularly balanced, with the flavours clashing a little bit. The vegetal notes aren’t off-putting, but just a bit bizarre.
    • Nose
      Light and bright. Definitely smells young and a bit sappy. Lemon, grass, lemongrass. Peaches, white cherries, orange bitters, and fragrant flowers. Green barley, delicate caramel, and a tiny bit of a custard note. Spicy vanilla, cinnamon, white chocolate, and charred oak. A bit of a pine note and some turmeric.
    • Taste
      Medium-thin texture. Seems to be moderate proof. Floral and fruity up front: Red Delicious apples, muscat grapes, and tangerine peel. Warm and spicy on the development, with tobacco, oak spice, and vanilla. Quite green on the development – string beans? Toffee, pralines, candied ginger, and pine.
    • Finish
      Medium-length and floral-sweet. More of those sweet green notes of snap peas and green beans. Strawberry ice, coconut yogurt, and lime Jell-o. Black tea loaded with milk and honey. Nutty and slightly waxy.

    The English – Gently Smoked Sherry Cask
    70cl - £56.50 - 46% ABV
    Limited Small Batch Release

    As we move towards Autumn and with social outings curtailed, a gently smoked Single Malt whisky that has been asleep in a wonderful sherry cask for most of its life is all that you need to lift your spirits.

    A truly spectacular whisky – well worth a try.

    Nose: Gentle smoke with raisins, dried fruit and candied peel. Dates and maraschino cherries with a hint of marzipan. Lovely notes of soft warm leather. A beautiful waft of lightly charred oak.

    Taste: Creamy, rich and oily palate with a soft spicy sweetness. Dry with oaky, woody overtones. The fruits come across with the cherries dominating. Lovely floral hints along with a slightly honeyed after-taste. Fantastic long finish.
