  1. hsmithjr scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I found this one a bit different from its BBR and BF sister casks. Beefy, and brilliant.
    • Nose
      Ocean Liner diesel fuel.  Demerara sugar.  Salted caramels. Fountain pen ink.  Estery.  Pansies.  Faint hint of some sort of fruit cobbler.
    • Taste
      Sweet and, is that coal smoke?  It is!  Firm oak, but not too firm. Cashews, then some trail mix.  Coconut milk.  Honey?
    • Finish
      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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Very strong, sweetish, a no longer quite so musty wood note accompany the vanilla and the bright fruits.
    • Finish
      medium long, slightly dry from the oak, slightly astringent, a little sweet and sourish fruit, a few oak notes.

    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.
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      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
      and sweeter.
    • Finish
      On the long finish,
      it is mostly white fruit and liquorice that speak.

    Let this oxidate, it will get rounder and definitively gains on balance!

  14. Medea scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    very special nose: milky, hazelnut cream, white chocolate, vanilla and some fresh soapy, but absolutely not unpleasant! In addition spicy mint.
    On the palate: then almost identical - extremely creamy, milky, very fresh, spicy and again this soap notes & sweet hazelnut, white chocolate, honey, then stay behind by Alk still light fruit flavors. Very long & unique!
