  1. Highlander65 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Color: amber
    Very good, perhaps the cask and the sauternes have marked a little too much
    • Nose
      Vinous and sweet bouquet, notes of red fruit, mon cheri, trifle
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is slightly tannic, sweet, creamy, dense, with a subtle acidulous note that together with the sweet and creamy reminds the cherry of the mon cheri
    • Finish
      Final still on the chocolaty notes

    SMWS notes:

    First, we noticed the gorgeous colour which was followed by the slow-moving think oily legs when swirling the glass a little. We baked banana bread muffins, Caribbean coconut tart and sweet potato pudding. On the palate, a fruit trifle made with pineapple, papaya, mango, coconut and plenty of spiced rum. Water added the scent of Curacao bitter orange peel, candied kumquats and quince jelly while to taste like a bar of white chocolate filled with a delicate passion fruit cream. This took us all, right from the start until the finish, to a tropical destination. After twenty-three years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky into a 1st fill Sauternes barrique.
