  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 106 bottles from cask no. 30035
    Sadly only 106 bottles were yielded from this ex-bourbon, American oak barrel. Good colour – 18CT gold – and good beading, with large blebs. Slight prickle. Almond oil, even dry marzipan, with juicy fruit salad (peach, pear, apple, banana, orange), but slightly artificial – like ‘fruit salad chews’. Nice texture at natural strength, with a taste like a (non sickly) Bounty Bar! Water releases more almond oil, with desiccated coconut and milk chocolate, perhaps a hint of sweet basil. A smooth texture; light sweetness, centre palate, with slight spiciness on the tongue, followed by cleansing bitterness and an aftertaste of coconut milk.

      First wild cherry. Then apple compote, peach, marzipan, vanilla pudding and minerals. Some green banana and fresh leaves, mint maybe. Water adds strawberry.

      More bourbon-y. Vanilla, marzipan, apple, green banana, raspberry and pepper.  Creamier when adding water.

      Vanilla pudding, almond, pepper, strawberry, mint, banana and peach.
