  6. metropolis13 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Superb nose but the mouth is a big one underneath, to taste with aeration
    • Nose
      Melted but complex with odors of old furniture mixed with fruit (strawberries and bananas flambéed)
    • Taste
      creamy on the palate and more spicy and tannic than the nose
    • Finish
      a little too woody on spices and drought

    • Taste
      oily, very woody
    • Finish

  8. franpincoffee scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior


    Like the Glenfiddich 12 and 18-year-old whiskies, this uses a mix of approximately 80% refill bourbon casks and 20% ex-sherry casks. The nose has walnuts, figs, nutmeg, toffee, and vanilla. The taste is very smooth and spicy with cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and vanilla. The finish is lingering with notes of brown sugar and ginger.

      Elegant finish full of fruit and sweet honey with hints of chocolate and hints of smoke
