  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    For its 18 years this is amazingly sweet whiskey. A good aperitif for a lazy Sunday afternoon in summer. Thanks Dave for the sample.
    • Nose
      Lots of sweet barley, vanilla and honey. Fresh sawdust. Juicy buttery oak followed by aniseed and camomile. Green tea and some flowery notes.
    • Taste
      Quite toffeeish and caramel-like. Candied apples. Marzipan. But also roasted chestnuts and sandal wood. Rum-raisins. Some rye at the background as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long and dry. Marshmellows. Cinnamon and a toch of ginger.

  3. molar3rd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet yet spicy. Rye. A dollop of Vanilla , caramel and toffee. Some wood shavings. With sweet dried fruit; think : prunes.

    Palate: Quite spicy with lots of hot cinnamon, rye spiciness with pepper, toffee and vanilla custard. Mouth watering sweetness. With more dried fruit, and a nice mouth feel.

    Finish : Again : spicy, with lots of pepper. Sweet spicy Chilly. Wood and rye. Getting dry.

    An excellent whiskey no doubt, and even priced at over $70 (40 quid) it’s a steal for an 18 year old. I am not sure how come Canadian whiskey is so cheap (at least in Canada it is). not sure where you can get this baby outside Canada with all their silly online shipping issues, but if you can, it’s well worth getting.
