  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Pale gold.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: An initial delicate smoke, becomes very fruity - influences of fresh

    pineapple and coconut. A sweet vanilla edge develops.

    Palate: Mouth warming - hint of delicate spice. Becomes sweet with a hint of

    cinnamon present.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Heavy malt nose initially, a delicate sweetness is present and citrus

    influences come to the fore.

    Palate: Initially peppery, softer with water and remains sweet.

    Body: Light.

    Finish: Sweet and drying.

    Cask Type(s): Refill American hogshead.

  2. Willie JJ scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    A nice CC bottle from G&M. It would be great at CS (as usual).
    • Nose
      Tangerines, peaches and love heart sweets. Lashings of malt and a hint of mustiness.
    • Taste
      Beautiful sweet barley malt with little fruity bursts of peach along with some fabric softener.
    • Finish
      The mustiness is back, but its not unpleasant. Medium length and a little hot.
