- there are point deduction because
That should go better at this price range.
Sweet vanilla with red fruits. malt
Complex. No alcohol noticeable.
A nice nose, if you like it sweet and fruity
Wine, marmalade fruit and light malt note
a very soft start.
Sweet, maybe the sugar with some aspartame.
Then again the red fruits, cherry with red currant, with walnut.
The oak is only very noticeable.
The age tastes you.
Very soft, unfortunately a bit weak because of the 40%. I would like to drink it with 46% or cask strength. That would certainly be much better, he has what it takes.
If sweet and fruity, the sweetness is a bit artificial.
Out of the throat comes some oak with walnut and malt.
On the whole a fruity flatterer.
- Very nice fruity whisky. Heavy and oily with a great finish.
Wine, marmalade fruit and light malt note
Fruity, sweetness, trace nuttiness, pleasant oak, very soft
Very long and warming, sweetness of the wine and finally the oak, great finish
- A very pleasing, aromatic single malt from the Age of Discovery series, satisfying nose and palate equally. The red wine cask finish brings in rich fruitiness and well-dosed sweetness but without overwhelming the distillery character. This is nicely balanced with a warming spicy core. A really pleasant surprise. Water isn't necessary at all!
Pleasantly fruity on the nose with red cherries, raspberries, red currant and yellow apples. This is complemented by vanilla and a rich wine aroma. Hints of white pepper and oak spice in the back.
Subtle sweet but fairly fruity start on the palate with wine aroma, red cherries and raspberries. Creamy even velvety. Then warming spices arrive with cinnamon, white pepper and oak, followed by a touch of bitter grape peel towards the finish. The delicate warming pepperiness increases with a second sip.
The finish is medium long, warm and creamy. Slightly sweet with red berries compote, a touch of grape peel, oak and tannins on the tail.
With water: Water enhances the fruitiness on the nose with more yellow apples, red cherries and berries and wine flavours. Even citric notes and juicy oranges arrive, nicely mixed with creamy vanilla in the back. On the palate, however, the lovely sweet and fruity notes are significantly tamed, while dry notes of oak, tannins and bitter grape peel take over. The finish is short, subtle warm and dry with oak, tannins and a hint of creamy fruit jam on the tail.
Fresh. Red apples, dark grapes, raspberries, honey. Orange jelly. Some earth and reeds.
Raspberry cake, vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds. Orange marmalade, Campari. Slightly sticky, medium length.
of AOD, after the excellent Madeira (90) to just good Bourbon Cask
(82), feeling are this RW Cask would fall in between the two. N- Open up well with some nice old malt here, rusty iron, match box
boosted with juicy peaches, apricot, subtle burnt powdery tea leafs.
Probably some musky wood there too. Balance, complex, pleasant. P- Non aggressive, no rush, gentle and mild manner. Consistent layers
of nutmeg, then comes the peppery notes, some kind of tropical fruits
which I unable to identify, but this is delicious.
silky and firm body. Touch of sourish treacle with echoing white
peppercorn warmness remains. Masterfully balance, no hints of any
unfavorable tannin, but in fact I am anticipating a bit more red wine
character in this.
