  5. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Attractive and complex nose, where woody notes mingle with sweet-shop aromas and some tart, unripe fruit. Water only flattened the profile (it was better without). Creamy on the palate, with hints of coffee beans and dark cholocate coming through at the end. Medium-length finish that, once again, didn`t benefit from the addition of water. 

    Added note: I left a dram of this in the glass for 30mins and the nose got even better...rich fruity tones pouring out and more evidence of the long time spent in wood coming through (nose straight from the bottle = 89). Definitely one where water is not required and patience is rewarded!
