  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    It is lightly sherried, but richly flavoured.
    • Nose
      Slightly dusty with glue wood polish to start. It's a bit prickly, but it softens after a while. Pink grapefruit, then peaches and lemon. Some cookie dough as well. Not the most complex nose, but lovely intense.
    • Taste
      Just a whiff of smoke (very, very light peat), which gives it that old-timey taste. Exactly how I love it. Plenty of oak, with lemon and ginger, but also almonds and walnuts. Fruit cake as well.
    • Finish
      Super gentle smoke, stewed pear, ginger and oak. Pretty long.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A bomb !
    • Nose
      Candied wood, dust, petrified fruit. A delight.
    • Taste
      A slow rise of tastes, to finally explode. It's powerful and delicious, an "old" sherry style.
    • Finish
      Warm radiance throughout the mouth, and tingling everywhere.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Fruitcake richness, a little furniture polish and malt loaf.Palate: Agile with crushed mixed nuts, spice and gentle oak.Finish: Long with more fruitcake and a hint of maraschino.Overall: Rich and sherried but remarkable light in character.
