  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A stunning PE.
    • Nose
      Back to the farmyard, but not in a bad way. This is a well managed,
      clean farm. some nice clean vanilla notes that you would expect to get
      from first fill bourbon casks. Not much in the way of fruit unless its
      cooked, but the malty, grist is here.
    • Taste
      Wonderful barley sugars that aren't dominated by the wood. The vanillins
      just add to the effect. I really think this must have been a first-fill
      bourbon cask. There is spice but it is very much in the background as
      seasoning rather than being dominant.
    • Finish
      The vanilla gradually dries on the tongue leaving a lovely sweet spice. Kind of like cinnamon and clove rock. Beautiful.
