  2. PeterCr scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Interesting dram with good balanced and very subtle flavours (maybe a bit too light?). Nothing is overpowering except the tannines maybe a bit. Port cask is recognizable and has different effect then sherry casks.

    Still a bit pricy in my view.

    Score 84-86pts.
    • Nose
      Medium impact nose, banana, some dried fruits, sweet syrupy (wax, honey), spices (cinnamon, pepper). Clearly some woody notes.
    • Taste
      Smooth texture but a bit lighter then expected of a 21yo, sweetness (caramel, honey, raisins, dades) followed by some spicy notes. Very subtle flavours but nice balance in sweet, spice and tannines (maybe a bit too much).
    • Finish
      Long finish but again with subtle flavours. Ending quite dry (tannic) and spicy.
