  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    N: salty, beef stock, a nice ashiness throughout, grapes and cantaloupe. Maple syrup, raisins, perhaps a little tobacco. All the elements are there, perhaps a little weak is all

    T: light mouthfeel, simple syrup, grape juice, salt, wet ash. Perhaps a little sweet but again some nice flavor in moderation

    F: red wine, smoke and wet ash, medium finish. Licorice

    Not bad. It’s a little restrained and perhaps a little sweet at times, but I enjoy it. Not something I would seek out. My favorite of the core range for sure.

    Cinderella in her early phase: a little unimpressive, but the facilities are there and await their discovery
    • Nose
      a bit salty, a bit like ashes, a little bit of menthol, a little bit fruity, a bit like tobacco, just a bit of everything and not completely convincing
    • Taste
      Honey, not exactly definable fruits, ashes
    • Finish
      And this conglomerate does not discharge itself so badly with finally violent liquorice, which lingers a little longer.

    • Nose
      white board marker, bicycle rubber inner tube, raisins, sweet dark fruits, a little honey, old wood, fresh moist rolling tobacco
    • Taste
      fruity then spices, cinamon and ginger, initially oily mouth feel but it goes watery if kept too long, sweet but yet some bitterness
    • Finish
      goes very dry at the end, a few sweet and very tasty rasberries turned up at the very end of each sip
