- It is hard to say
which I like best of the two, so I took the easy path and scored them the same.
Oh, this one does not need water, but can easily take it.
Yep, it is an
identical twin on the nose. Gras, flowers, hay, potpourri, they all return,
albeit in somewhat different amounts. This one seems a little less alcoholic
and has a little more white fruit. Adding water gives it a milky edge. Coconut
This one is also
pretty feisty and creamy on the palate. Ginger, pepper, toasted oak. A salty lining.
As complex as the twin cask. Equally good. Adding water makes it more creamy
On the long finish,
it is mostly white fruit and liquorice that speak.
- I found this one a bit different from its BBR and BF sister casks. Beefy, and brilliant.
Ocean Liner diesel fuel. Demerara sugar. Salted caramels. Fountain pen ink. Estery. Pansies. Faint hint of some sort of fruit cobbler.
Sweet and, is that coal smoke? It is! Firm oak, but not too firm. Cashews, then some trail mix. Coconut milk. Honey?
Medium long and spicy with some salt. More oak. Floral soap. I can't decide if the tail end is ink or a petroleum product of some sort.
- Very nice dram, the nose is the less to my opinion, even when added a drop of water. The taste is very nice and the finish is the best of this dram, it lasts for a long time. Lots to discover in this dram so an easy 87 points from me.
- Nose: Light, malty, with some sweetness, nuts and wood polish.we discover more wood as we let it rest. So i recommend to use patience with this one…
Palate: Sweet stuff, with golden syrup, quite a bit of wood, but in a good way, a bit of smoked wood, and spice, nuts and dried coconut with a fruity character, dried apricot, and macadamia nuts with vanilla pods
Finish : nutty, coconut and vanilla.
the wood is quite dominant, but in a nice way. very enjoyable, with the nutty, and coconut.
- Unfortunately again this mushroom false note, which actually completely ruined the whisky.
fruity, but quite a hairspray use. I also think that one of the other Offnote to discover. Especially in the direction of musty wood. Slightly sour, light fruits in a musty wooden barrel, that's pretty good.
Very strong, sweetish, a no longer quite so musty wood note accompany the vanilla and the bright fruits.
medium long, slightly dry from the oak, slightly astringent, a little sweet and sourish fruit, a few oak notes.
- This Whisky was sold for 98€ and 111€ at Whisky Auction (September 2017).
