  1. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Dried orchard fruit, sultanas, oak, sugar cookies, baking spice, Honey Nut Cheerios, dark honey and light herbal and raisiny notes.

    In an odd way, it’s refreshing. It’s light, but not spineless, it’s fresh but oaky, it’s… kinda odd. Good, but odd.

    Dried orchard fruit, dark honey, dried dark fruit, raisiny sweetness, roasted nuts, baking spice, pastries and a slight herbalness.

    The palate seems to lighten up compared to the aroma, but it’s still good. Delicious even.

    Medium-short -> Dried orchard fruit, oak and baking spice with a light pastry sweetness.

    [October, 2018] They sell a bottle for 720 GBP at the distillery right now and to be honest: I think this is completely "out of this world". But to check this I bought a dram (40 ml for 25 pounds) and...

    ...yes, the price is outrageous! This is a fine dram (no doubt) with an excellent nose and a delicate taste but it owns a rather weak finish, too. Sorry Jim, but this never ever will make it into my top 100 whiskies - and as a drinker I am not willing to spend more than 200 Eurobucks on a bottle of such quality...
    • Nose
      93 93
      The colour is tawny and the nose offers a excellent old-school bourbon-sherry mixed profile without any off-notes. It is very complex and perfectly balanced, I really like to sniff this for hours.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is delicate fruity and reminds me a little bit of the fruitiness of late-sixties Bowmore (without the peaty elements, of course). No, it is not on eye-level with these legendary drams but still very fine. No flaw that I can find. Water is not needed as it just flattens the dram.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and charming but with just a minor coating (creamy) feeling. The finish is rather short, unfortunately and adds no new impressions. There is a minor drying ending (papers) - this finish is significantly weaker than both the nose and taste.

    "Bursting with depth of flavor, dried fruits, blackberries, plums and dates are married with chocolate, coffee and cinnamon spice as this mouth-watering, full=flavored, rich and complex expression engages and entices the senses." - Distillery
