  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted in the evening. Very pretty ! Very round, on cooked fruits, pulling towards the exotic, on the nose.
    Mouth, round, spicy, fragrant, rather exuberant.
    It may be missing a few degrees for me to climb the curtain.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Whisky n ° 2049

    As I remembered. The nose is excellent, the palate less rich and complex but very good. To sip and enjoy slowly.
    • Nose
      Lots of honey, floral notes, buttery pastries and fruits. Peaches, apricots, bananas, melons. Vanilla. Old leather. Hints of nuts.
    • Taste
      Thick on honey again. Fruits syrup, vanilla, oranges, spices and a touch of oak. Hints of mentholated notes.
    • Finish
      Medium, spices, oranges.

  6. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Quite a leafy, woody nose this one with a load of oatmeal biscuit perhaps some vanilla in the mix too.
    This one is showing its age, not with the wood of the cask but the way the fruit is syrupy and well stewed , nice balance, slightly drying.
    It gets a little sweet and a huge spice blast mixed with the fruit, nectarine juice, mango a touch of lime, its a fruit salad, great.
    This has a good medium finish remaining sweet and fruity until the end.
    A good whisky.
