  5. Thermidor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    An odd one for sure, as if some freak escaped from Campbeltown and hid in these casks. It's got some of that 'old whisky' vibe to it, but I couldn't score it very highly on account of it taking water very poorly, and having a finish that's altogether too quiet and unsatisfying for me.

  7. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pretty decent stuff
    • Nose
      Peaches in heavy syrup, chocolate orange, a little prune, spicy currant cake and a few farmyard smells mixed in.
    • Taste
      Very spicy, on ginger and creamy caramel and then orange, what I would call zingy.

      Full fat on the palate, quite thick and creamy. There is almost an aftertaste of custard
    • Finish
      Medium length with a little toffee bitterness creeping in.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Erik. Seemed to me like a finished one, as the picture just doesn't seem right to me. Slightly schizophrenic dram, not really my cup of tea but at least it's not boring.
    • Nose
      Nectarine, cantaloupe melon, toffee, pepper, banana, cherry, chocolate and mint. Spicy sherry (or wine perhaps?). A slight whiff of puke as well.
    • Taste
      Again spicy with a hard-to-describe fruitiness. Not the typical sherry
      fruits, it seems to come from the spirit itself. A mixture of melon,
      lychee and nectarine. Furthermore some toffee,
      pepper and a little mint.
    • Finish
      Now the mint really comes up big, confusing! Still some fruitiness,
      pepper and chocolate in the background, but it's the mint that's
      dominant in the finish.

  10. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    dramtastic taste
    • Nose
      oily, nuts, citrus, roasted barley and bourbon fruits exotic fruits
    • Taste
      very sweet with fudge and floral notes like roses, oily and nuts combined with spices
    • Finish
      medium drying with liquorice, spices - nutmeg and vanilla
