  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    An interesting and striking example, with excellent potential, but not yet mature enough. He needs some more time in the barrel to really open up.
    • Nose
      Yellow pear, cream, lemon pie, leaves, wood, paper.
    • Taste
      Malty sweetness, yellow apple, creamy note, coarse tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium length, pleasantly burning, fruity, creamy, malty, a touch of citrus, with a slight touch of newmake.

    N: That’s bourbon [cask maturation] alright! More importantly, I recognise this, stylistically, from a bottle of Lindores Abbey 1494 I recently finished [full report below]. What’s coming through from the core release, here, is a young malt with a particular sweet > savoury > sour fruity honeyed beer-like character – in particular, a honey & maple syrup-soaked banana/bloomer breadiness with some lightly toasted poppy seeds on top. Delicious! Much like Lindores’ 1st-fill bourbon cask #289 [WLP], there’s no abv nip on the nose whosoever.

    T: Neat, rather sour and peppery. The abv also strikes, but thankfully, it takes to some water. Now softer if more grainy, there’s still no hiding from the rawness, however. Diluted some more, after a savoury bready arrival, it remains rather sour though the pepperiness has diminished somewhat.

    F: Short finish after a relatively longer unwind. Continuing sour, we’ve a floury/chalky mild vanilla & banana < natural yoghurt conclusion.

    C: I go back to that nose again and again. Lindores have distillery character, early on. How that evolves over time is anyone’s guess. It’ll be fascinating watching the evolution in real time.
