    The best description I can think of for this whisky is "sweetly delicious cereal". It veers towards being too sweet but is held back by a light tannic quality. There is an unmistakable presence of Teaninich malt in this blend it has some subtle facets that are easy to miss.
    • Nose
      Brisk and fruity with a waxy edge and some icing sugar. Citrus, cereal grains, pears, peaches, melon and apple. There is the faintest note of smoke with a breezy maritime character.
    • Taste
      The arrival is malt and gristy cereal with orange citrus zest.
      As it develops some grassy and orchard fruit flavours appear together with barley sugar. There is also a slight tannic waxiness that adds a firm edge to the palate, but it is balanced by yeasty sweetness.
    • Finish
      Short. Malty cereal flavours that fall away quickly. A slight smoke note in the aftertaste.

    Very light, small spicy finish, ideal for aperitif. A blend of good quality. (Tasted at Whiskey Live) Enthusiasm 3/5

    I had a chance to talk with John about where his idea`s come from this year at the WhiskyFest in San Fransisco. We both agreed on maturity matters and love the way whisky is going for the future. I really enjoyed the eleuthera and hope he comes back out with a second batch. He didn`t go into it in great detail, however keep a look out for what`s next from this fantastic whisky maker!

    An extraordinary high-quality blend from maverick independent John

    Glaser, a man dedicated to the art of combining whiskies to produce an

    end result greater than the sum of its parts. If you wanted to convert

    someone who says they don`t like whisky, you couldn`t do much better

    than this. A must!
