  1. ricallende scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    powerful and enjoyable dram!
    • Nose
      Notes up front of red fruit, cranberries and raisins. The oak is noticeable along with vanilla, molasses, tobacco, leather, and faint caramel.
    • Taste
      Caramel, oak, and molasses. The dried fruit flavors primarily red fruits-I get raisins or dried cranberries, possibly strawberries and a touch of a tart fruit too.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and enjoyable with a fruity creaminess to it that is very candy-like. To be exact it's strawberries and cream, similar to hard candies. There is little burn on the finish.

    Never mix a whiskey with water, but at over 60% I am already interested in how a whiskey with a little water changes. Although it gets a little softer, it loses hardly any edge but more complexity. So I can not recommend this whiskey, which is an absolute top whiskey for me.

    Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of

    this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out.

    He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it

    and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!
