  1. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very harmonious, whole and light whisky. Alcohol is smartly integrated. Great balance, not very difficult, but interesting and delicate.
    • Nose
      Fresh bread, some home brew, lemons sprinkled with cinnamon, ripe fruits. After standing in a glass for 30 minutes, the whisky acquires chocolate notes, dried fruits with nuts are added in an old dusty bag
    • Taste
      lemon juice in oil, raisins in honey, almost no alcohol is felt, very light and pleasant, a little spices, ripe juicy pear
    • Finish
      ripe tropical fruits, some cinnamon, dried fruits and raisins

    very nice drink, makes you want more
    • Nose
      88 88
      very fresh and with great fruit, tangerine citrus and a fresh green apple, the longer it is in the glass the ripe the fruit, almost a juicy fruit chewing gum note
    • Taste
      87 87
      very sweet medium weight, honey, woody buttery fruit aromas, slightly peppery on the cheeks
    • Finish
      88 88
      nice and voluminous after perfect American oak with enough age, no bitter substances, really pleasantly dry.

    I found sample #12 of the BTC 2014 still half full. Lucky me! What a fantastic dram.
    • Nose
      Figs, damp hay, dirt, wood chips covered in sweet honey, sultana, overripe red fruit, some mint, 
    • Taste
      First sweet honey, then sweet red fruit, then dark chocolate, figs, raisins, wood. The development is superb!
    • Finish
      Long, only sightly bitter. Overripe red fruits in the back of the tongue, dark chocolate, dark sugar all die off slowly

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Interesting, rather dry, vanilla-tropical, fruity mole, a very peculiar, but attractive, spacer.
    • Nose
      Open, moist, floral-herbal, notes of fat and wet wool, green apple, drying plaster, sweet wool, Turkish sweets, anise, feijoa, vanilla, coconut.
    • Taste
      Saturated, oak, lemon, orange, apricots, some tropical fruits, pineapple, lacquer notes.
    • Finish
        Spicy, kumquat, candied fruits from kiwi, orange, creamy notes, something floral-perfumery, vanilla, coconut.

  6. Jeep51 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A whisky that works wonderfully. Not ultra complex but really easy and sexy.
    • Nose
      Immediately very fruity: fresh fruit, juicy peaches, apricots and bananas walls. Slightly tart (harlequin candies?). There is also a lot of wax candle, encaustic but the whole remains fresh. At aeration, more lemony.
    • Taste
      Rich and fat. We are in the continuity with always this mixture of fruits well walls with a small tip of exoticism (khaki) and the wax which is very present. Bitterness too, quinine. From the middle of the mouth, the wax turns into honey. Yum
    • Finish
      Very long, sweet. Honey and fruits.

  7. molar3rd scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: A big big sherry dominated nose, really a beauty. The whole nine yards with the dried fruit, sultana, fig and date, but some damp oak too, which might hint to age… I am sensing some smoke too here. shoot me.

    Palate: BIG abv going on here, 50’s I think. with a lot of sherry, which is no surprise, some salted caramel, and sugary backbone with a nice oaky balance to it all. good stuff.

    Finish: Long, sherry, dried fruit, oak.

    All in all this is a cracking dram! sherry galore, a bit of caramel and a slightly smoky feeling to it too. I like it very very much, much more than previous days!

  9. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There are some very pleasant aroma's and flavors in there, but I find it a bit too simple to get a higher score.
    • Nose
      Waxy, citrus and freshly cut grass. Some sherry aromas but also some coconut, banana, vanilla. A nutty quality, almonds maybe. The nose does get mustier with time passing.
    • Taste
      Oily and creamy. Waxy again, but also honey and some dried fruits. Very smooth palate. Ginger, grapefruit, and apple. Fairly spicy and oaky.
    • Finish
      Peppery, wood spices, coconut. A bit dry and slightly bitter.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample in BTC 2014.
    • Nose
      Banana, roasted almond, caramel, apple, plum, peach and raspberry. With water more lime and a little honey.
    • Taste
      Almond, caramel, banana, perhaps a little peach. But also roses, that's interesting.
    • Finish
      Caramel, almond, chestnut, peach, a little pepper, mint and a whiff of smoke. Again very dry.
