  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I'm not a particular fan of all kind of wood finishes, but this is a nice example of a well balanced wood finished whisky. No complexity, but very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      According to Billy Walker on the label: "sultanas, figs and butterscotch". I would like to add to that: an enjoyable sweetness, tropical fruit (melon, papaya). The sauternes reminds me of several madeira finishes I've tasted in the past.
    • Taste
      Again Billy Walker on the label: "rich sweet sauterness notes married with tropical fruits, melons, toffee, sultanas and butterscotch". I completely agree with those notes. For me the sweet intensity of the sauterness is amazing.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet.
