4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.77 points

  1. molar3rd scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Nose: old wood up front. And I mean heaps of that. My kind of old wood. As in old benches. Library books. Varnish. The whole nine yards. This cask rocks. Lemon curd comes to mind after a few seconds as well as coconut and macerated cherries.

    Palate: deep and sweet to begin with. Lots of sugar and vanilla. Pepper and old wood and lots of spice. Mouth watering. Cherries, maybe a hint of exotic fruit : dried sugared pineapple and stewed peaches. A touch of chocolate truffles. Yummy stuff. Excellent cask.

    Finish : sweet. Fruity stewed peaches. Vanilla. Chocolate. Bits of coconut candy. Majestic wood. Damn fine stuff.

    Adding water takes down the spices and gives some vanilla
    • Nose
      light tones of peat, vanilla, apricots, peach and slight medical note
    • Taste
      Sweetness turning into explosive spices and warmth.
    • Finish
      Long spicy with an end of bitter almonds
