  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Pale gold.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Floral with defined herbal notes, some creamy fudge influences. Some

    summer fruits and a subtle Sherried edge.

    Palate: Initial burst of mixed spices, warming and mouth coating. Sweet with

    hints of butter shortbread.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Fresher with green apple notes, delicate fudge influences, some tropical

    fruits and a touch of Sherry wood.

    Palate: Gentle hint of spices, some defined chocolate fudge, warming and

    lingering. Smooth and well balanced.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Lingering and drying.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry hogsheads.

    Whisky Style: Nice Speysider - pre-dinner dram.

  2. Willie JJ scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is great fun. It lacks a little weight and is not flawless, but I could drink it all night.
    • Nose
      Malt extract, husk, raisins, mince pies and mixed peel. The faintest sour note, but nothing to worry about.
    • Taste
      Delicious fizzy sweetness that sizzles on the palate. Plenty of juicy, fruity fun. Not weighty, but delicious.
    • Finish
      The fizzing continues with mild pepper and cinnamon. Delicious.
