  1. Tangtang_WhiskyYoda scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very nice and pleasant single malt.
    Nice fruity profile.
    But you have to give this whisky some time in the glass so that it can unfold. Then comes a great fruity nose to the fore.
    Despite cask strength, this malt can be enjoyed pure without adding water.
    • Nose
      91 91
      fruity with grapes, light berries, raisins, dried fruits, then some dark berries come along with citrus fruits. Vanilla with some caramel. Later becoming spicy with some white pepper. After a long time smelling, aromatic oak notes come through
    • Taste
      89 89
      strong fruity attack, light fruit acidity, caramel, vanilla, some pepper, apples, slightly creamy and oily, with the strong fruity dominating the whole time. Nuts appear later. Subtly sweet and some notes of young wood.
    • Finish
      89 89
      strong as already on the palate. Very fruity and now swinging a little more in the sweet direction. However, the fruit acid is still slightly present here. At the very end, a slight bitterness appears, which does not last long and gives way to the fruity notes again.

    I loved this whisky. It’s cask strength so gave it some time to breath and added a little ice. Vanilla and fudge was striking on the nose. Undercurrent of raisins. Citrus and honey are prevalent with hints of caramel on the palette. Due to its strength I was expecting a little alcohol burn but the finish was short and unexpected. Very smooth finish. Overall a great dram. Really surprised me, well done Nine Rivers Distillery, look forward to the next edition.

    official Tasting notes:

    We drew samples of this The Founders’ Casks Expression 1 and through a panel of 12 whisky enthusiasts, we created these collective tastings notes.

    The nose is fruity, laced with raisins and sultanas on a bed of vanilla and cream fudge. A final hint of citrus peels makes way for a smooth and honey-rich palate, complete with green apples, peaches and a viscous underflow of caramel, cream and malted milk biscuits. The finish is light and quick – a tropical flourish that gives way to dried stone fruits.
