  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 226 bottles from cask no. 3209
    An incredibly deep amber colour for an American oak, ex-bourbon maturation. Very good beading also suggests great texture. A rich and complex nose, with Scotch trifle – sponge soaked in sherry, with tinned pears and apricots, Maraschino cherries, raspberry jam, custard and thick cream, decorated with glace angelica root. A hint of cigar box after a while. Sweet then quite drying, to taste. Water makes the nose less sweet and introduces a tangy note (Cape gooseberries?) and a trace of dessicated coconut, which comes through in the taste - sweet and not so drying as before, with a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste. Noses well, straight; tastes better with a drop of water.
