  2. L_Gillian scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Quite cask-driven, from a great quality cask obviously.
    Uncomplicated and round with just the right amount of variation to keep things interesting. Only remark would be the short finish, otherwise it's great simple sipping pleasures!

      Beautiful creamy and fruity sherry, juicy vanilla sponge cake. Brown spiced biscuits and mango sorbet. There's a hint of something vegetal-umami, maybe chickpeas?
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full bodied, oily. Surprisingly cozy-umami with whiffs of bitter orange zest. Overripe grapes, boozy raisins, dark chocolate sauce, dusty wooden box.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium intensity but short in length. Echoes of the palate, the grapes and dustiness mostly. Grape peels.
