  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sir Richard Patterson in Hawaiian shirt? This is the mental image that came to me when I saw the pedigree of this whisky. On the nose, sweet and honeyed but still a little weak. With a little water, we have apples, wood dust and a lot of freshness. But it's not foufou in terms of intensity. In the mouth, very spicy and it is the bourbon cask that marks initially before giving way to the aromas of rum at the end of the mouth, even in the final. With a little water, the sweetness is increased, to the detriment of spices. There is malt and fresh fruit. Interesting to see that with a barrel change and an atypical title we can shatter the character of a distillery.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. Volanne scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is no demonstrative whisky, but it has a charm of its own, starting simple, and ending up classy. Probably much older than I thought at first nosing. A nice Tormore or Rosebank in its twenties?

    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:

    • Nose
      Starts quite simple. Grassy and rooty. Youngish. But turns softer after a while, with nice vanilla (the elegant one) and icing sugar. Gets closer to the raw material now, with quite some cereal. Sweetened Corn Flakes (well, make it Frosties). And a splash of Lowlandish orange blossom water. And more alcohol too. A classy austerity.
    • Taste
      Yeah. Hot it is. Invigorating, but not burning. Surprisingly soft and silky, actually, for a malt that is probably close to 60%. A very clean spirit with a nice softness from the alcohol. A discreet fruitiness (gooseberries, star fruit). This is no fruit bomb nor modern cask driven malt. Just a very clean spirit aged in a high quality (fresh?) Bourbon cask.
    • Finish
      Long, clean, free of all bitterness, and with a hint of sweet liquorice.

    The note speaks for itself
    • Nose
      Very content. Fresh fruit (pear) but a lot of alcohol comes out. The aeration does not help and the alcohol remains too much present. Besides, water does not do anything about it ...
    • Taste
      Almond paste, brandy, alcohol. So-so !
    • Finish
      Long enough on the almond paste.
