  1. Whisky_Erlebnis scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    That's exactly what I expect from an "old" Bourbon Cask! It is clearly going in the same direction: Back dead he roots! That's how our motto should be in the future with Earkskine. And this wonderful bourbon malt with which you can be enchanted goes exactly in that direction.
    • Nose
      At the beginning there is a pleasant dominant vanilla note, caramel, flowering meadow, citrus fruits in all variations, especially grapefruit and some "old" oak wood are also at the start. Alcohol is barely noticeable and fits perfectly into the overall aroma!
    • Taste
      The influence of long storage is clearly evident here! Flowery floral notes, sweet vanilla, fruity pear, citrus and an oak character emerge full-bodied, elegant and, for the 49.4% cask strength, quite powerfully intense. A maritime note with a little coffee, dark chocolate and a light chili touché follows. (I also feel a touch of smoke) Nice complex!
    • Finish
      Typical bourbon cask notes persist for a long time. Floral, flowery, caramel, with a light coffee roast note and a bit of dark chocolate paired with a very, very nice, soft oak load to the end.

    Nose: Vanilla, light citrus notes and a very slight hint of Ricola herb candy, otherwise rather restrained and gentle

    Palate: that from the nose is confirmed and there is also a fresh liquorice note which is briefly there at the beginning and is again noticeable briefly towards the end. You can tell the 25 years because it is a really good Bourbon cask, but blindly I would have estimated it to be 15-18 years.

    Finish: sweet and dry, but unfortunately quite short for such a candidate. I would have hoped for him any longer

    Conclusion: a really good whisky, which could convince both in the nose and on the palate. The only point of criticism is the short finish. I would have hoped for a longer one after 25 years.
