  1. the_muskox scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty. I’d call this more on the “old-oak” side of things than the “old-whisky” side, by which I mean it’s got the robust wood flavour from the age but it otherwise pretty fresh. An excellent colder-weather whisky with all those jammy fruits and deep woody spices. I tasted this alongside the Calvados Finish Feis Ile 2022, and preferred that one.
    • Nose
      Rich and sweet with deep jammy fruits, blood orange, dark cherries. Nutty notes of pralines and hazelnuts. Earthy, with musty dunnage and dead leaves, leather and rancio. Slight floral hints and rosemary.
    • Taste
      Medium-thick texture, soft. Arrives with rich deep fruit, apple, fruit leathers, pumpkin (yes, I did drink this on Halloween, I swear it’s in there), then huge rich oak, dunnage, coffee bitterness, tobacco, stonefruit funk, and browned butter.
    • Finish
      Medium, extended development with lasting richness. Bittersweet oak turns to coffee, chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted nuts, and hard caramels. Orange pulp, jam and the vaguest hints of something tropical.
