    The nose has something that doesn't convey good to my taste - not a flaw but a feel. The overall feel of it is watery and the finish ends so quick it's almost gone as if it was just never there
    • Nose
      77 77
      Custard, dried prunes, a pinch of vinous acidity over hay, spices
    • Taste
      76 76
      In the mouth, starting on some acridity, which I'd describe as young, followed by custard and caramelly chocolate and then some cinnamon and a bit of dark chocolate
    • Finish
      74 74
      Finishes on alcohol and dried apricot yet very short

    Intens nose with spices and dries fruits. Nice body and medium after taste. Slightly sweet, but pleasant.

    Drunk in isolation, and not compared against other whiskies, I found this one stood out with quite a deep toffee flavour and notes of dried fruit. I would buy it and drink it again.

    An extremely balanced, full bodied whisky with a lot going on. An incredibly complex finish and a playful nose that really opens up with some water, but not much is needed. The Cabernet finish can really be done well and make this an excellent dram. I've had this before at bars and pubs and it has been very good. This is the first couple drams I've had of a bottle I just bought myself for the first time and I think it was better than I remembered. 93/100
    • Nose
      Heavy, creamy notes of spice and fruit. Some slight floral as well. Honey, cinnamon mixed with raisins and chocolate. 
    • Taste
      Lots of dried fruit and chocolate a waxy note, slight burn on front of toungue excellent with a drop of water. 
    • Finish
      Long, complex, slight smoke in the back of palate, dried fruit, oak, chocolate sweet caramel and honey with cinimon. changes a few times over the course of 60 seconds or so. This is designed for the cigar smoker to combine with a smoke and long finish.
