  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Soft, too soft (but it’s the dregs of the bottle). Honeyed and slightly floral. Great dram if not a little on the weaker side.
    • Nose
      Honey. Thick and creamy. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Honey and creamy. Great mouthfeel. Straight forward but my style and I like it a lot. Honey and more honey. Lemons and sweets.
    • Finish
      Honey, creamy but drops off a ledge.

    The First Cask range was a series of single casks bottled by Direct Wines from the 1990s through to the later 2000s. The series featured casks from numerous distilleries and were all bottled at 46%. Never widely available or publicised at the time they have since become something of a series of hidden gems with many great drams appearing in the range over the years.
    Signatory bottled for the First Cask series, but i’m not sure if exclusively - anyone? Laithwaites Wine is part of Direct Wines who bought Virgin Wines in 2005.
    N: Straight bourbon notes, a little peated and farmy on goats milk. Potent sugars, a heady mix
    T: Honeyed bourbon, silky mouthfeel, then becomes more fuller still.
    F: Strong into the finish.
    C: Strong identity for a natural one. Thanks for the recommendation Angus.
