  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    At the beginning, malt, chocolate and coffee that mutate into apples! (It's often the opposite). On the palate, spicy and fruity. A little greed and flexibility.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2013]  Finally I emptied bottle no. 598 that I bought for 55 Euro in June, 2013.

    [November, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 468 that I bought for 60 Euro in September, 2014.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85 both times.  I took no notes.

    Nothing wrong with it just squarely in the MOTR bracket.
    • Nose
      Sweet, floral and honey with a few notes of white wine (my initial impression)

      Some lemon sherbet but the nose is not particularly expressive.
    • Taste
      A little thin but it has enough power and then gets a little creamy.

      Icing sugar, light sponge cake  and a little lemon marmalade.
    • Finish
      Short on icing sugar.

    Enjoyable. Bourbon. Not very complex. Nose is the best.

    Tasted with WB friend Franzman. We were quite convinced this had aged in bourbon barrels.

    Blind tasting of a sample from Kay Meertens.
    • Nose
      Full, a bit sharp at first, vanilla, bourbon sweetness, honey, a hint of sherry.
    • Taste
      Less sweet than the nose, more sherry, vanilla, spicy, a bit peppery.
    • Finish
      Short, a bit bitter, sherry, barley.
