  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A few drops of water brought more of the subtle cream to the fore along with sweet cinnamon spice. There was a lot to love with this bottle and I could easily see pulling it down any time I craved something mellow and fruity or with a mild sherried profile, it could really go either way, and walked a thin line between light fresh fruits and concentrated dried ones.

    Mental Image: Summer Strawberry Field Salad
    • Nose
      Mellow and sweet. Fruity and herbal with dandelions, strawberries, and honey-sweetened Chamomile tea. Intriguing notes of maple pastries and balsamic vinegar sat in the background.
    • Taste
      Medium bodied with a bright sweetness and mellow creaminess. Sweet dried fruits, candied almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. Mild bitter herbal notes balanced against the sweet fruit while hints of cream and vanilla arrived at the end.
    • Finish
      Lingering mellow fruit sugars and mild dryness
