    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 112 bottles from cask no. 48431
    A Top Class malt which is rarely seen in proprietary bottlings, it has been drawn from a 1st fill ex-Bourbon hogshead, which has given it an unusually dark golden hue, even amber. The first nose is orangey, with earthy and spicy notes behind (we thought of horseradish), then a trace of light sponge and macaroons. A drop of water develops the citric note and increases its fragrance – Muscat grapes, wall-flowers, natural floor wax. A smooth, soft texture and a rounded taste, lightly sweet and lightly drying in the medium-length finish, leaving a lingering taste of desiccated coconut.

  4. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    The nose develops nicely into citric and flower aspects. Mixed with the orange peal and coconut this gives a very nice combination and is the biggest plus on this whisky. 

    The taste doesn't live up to that. Therefore it looses some points. But nevertheless a nice whisky.
    • Nose
      Starts right of with bitter orange peal, stewed fruits, cloves. Dark chocolate and grapefruit. Some citric aspects, waxy notes and grapes. A bit herbal and wild flowers.
    • Taste
      Stewed fruits, cinnamon a touch of pepper. Citric, coconut, grapes. Menthol, some waxy notes, cloves. 
    • Finish
      Medium finish to long finish. Quite peppery at first, some oak. To bad the fruit is gone.
