  5. markjedi1 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Very fruity
    Glenfiddich, but a touch too bitter, which began softly on the nose, became
    bigger on the palate, but exploded in the finish, totally overpowering the
    sweetness.
    • Nose
      The nose is creamy
      and sweet on apples, pears and loads of honey. Hint of Fanta.
      Caramel and some demerara sugar (must be from the rum cask). I also get a nice
      trace of woodsmoke.
    • Taste
      The arrival is a
      little less creamy, but punchy. The oak speaks first.
      Loads of spices like cinnamon and ginger, but also licquorice and a hint of
      pepper. Then the sweetness kicks in: sugared oranges, apple sauce and some pear
      syrup. The oranges turn slightly bitter midpalate.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long with a lot of bitter oranges, green herbs and oak.

  7. Sonett scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      The rum finish is present with a nose of suger cane and rum. also herbs, barley, bread and a little of coconut
    • Taste
      A light fruity rum taste followed by spices
    • Finish
      medium long finish of fading peppery spices
