  1. VittoBaritone scored this whisky 82 points Newbie

    Good value, intense and really rich. Made me think of a spicy rhum. Very interesting even though the finish is not that great.

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Quick note made at Fourty Creek Distillery.

    N: soft, smooth, vanillins, honey/caramel, Southern fruits

    T: gentle, with subtile oaky notes and vanilla sweetness.

    F: lovely, mellow and caramel

  4. dicembre29 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Vanilla. Caramel…maybe butterscotch(?). Nutmeg. Chocolate. Salty dough. Lemon. A dusting of cinnamon. Toasted marshmallow (actually…have you ever burnt one over a campfire? There you go!). Smells of fresh baking. Almost dessert-like in ways. Great cohesion. Very easy going.

    Palate: Spicy warm arrival that develops into a cinnamon / ginger / molasses cookie note. Creamy fudge (like the candy shops in Banff, my local mates).

    Thoughts: John knocks it outta the park with his entry level expression.
