  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    It's round and a little too much caramel.
    • Nose
      Round, quite beefy in alcohol.
      Very camphorated, vanilla, pepper, wood.
      Was classic bourbon?
      White peach. Butter.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is quite buttery.
      Apricot, peach, coconut. A grain?
      Wood, caramel.
    • Finish
      Long finish on burnt caramel, camphor fruit. The pepper.

    The integrations of multiple flavors make this dram stands out. 
    • Nose
      Very shy, then exotic fruits are coming after a few minutes.

      After about 30 minutes: very nutty, raw walnuts are present, sea salts, banana, vanilla bomb
    • Taste
      Extremely powerful and intense, sweet banana, walnut water, pencil peels, vanilla, dry and minty, but remains fresh
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate and papaya

  3. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good nose. Liked the mouth too. Maybe just a tad sugary sweet, especially on the finish. Excellent whisky anyway.
    • Nose
      Fruits (a combo of bananas and apples), precious wood, hints of vanilla and tobacco. A bit closed at first but it opens with aeration. With water, it's more fruity.
    • Taste
      Creamy and waxy. Honey and citrus. Spices from the oak.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, sweet.

    Great nose, followed
    by a good palate and finish. Nuff said. Just under 300 EUR, but it is hard to
    find already.
    • Nose
      Ooh, this is a nice
      nose, although unexpectedly sharp. Milk chocolate with vanilla filling is the
      first thing I smell, followed by green banana, maple syrup and coconut. It is a
      bit bourbonny, if you know what I mean. But add a teaspoon of water and it will
      turn into a fruit bomb like Caperdonich from the same era. Icing sugar.
      Something of moldy would (very nice), giving away the age. Great!
    • Taste
      Bam! I just lost two
      teeth. What a kicker! Very spicy and even waxy. Mostly on coconut, oranges and
      some nuts. Very creamy indeed. Mouth coating. Diluted, I get a fruitbasket with
      lime and starfruit in the lead. De spices become a little sharper. White
      pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long, spicy, but dry.

    One of the most amazing bottlings in 2013, excellent!

    Have now returned.  Yep - needed time to develop in the glass.  The aromas on the nose are now there in droves on the palate.  Banana, toffee apple, coconut, fruit basket, flambe creme caramel, banoffee pie, lime drizzle in the background. Upgrading the original score. It`s complex and rewards time. Careful with the water - a little helps bring out some fruit and citrus, but also lets some bitterness in, which can encroach too much.  I reckon this one might develop in the bottle a bit too.  Really grew on me.

  8. cavalier66 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose - banana, fruit orchard, bubblegum/opal fruits, faint vanilla, distant citrus

    Palate - The fruit is there, but the % alcohol too high to fully express itself.   Needs water (takes a lot of water), goes vegetal (green peppers) but water also brings out some quite significant sawdust. Some mild bitter tannins/tea at the end. 

    finish - medium to long, bitter, fruit is struggling to hold on here.

    Just at the end there was rather more fruit coming through, and things weer getting a bit sweeter - I think this one needs time to develop in the glass, and I rushed it a little. I still have half the sample left - will return to this.
