  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Quirky Ladyburn (in particular on the nose) for the American market. Not the first wacky expression of Ladyburn from Signatory. More rare than tasty.
    • Nose
      Ouch, starts with baby pugh and butyric acid I usually associate with old Edradour. Peach air freshener and a queasy cakiness. Hay and heather. Some autumn flowery notes and clover-honey. Very wacky indeed.
    • Taste
      Taste is somewhat better with clear bourbon barrel characteristics of creamy toffee, custard powder and caramel. Butterscotch and fudge. Marshmallows. Lemon-green tea. Beeswax furniture. Creme brulee as well. At the background hints of toasted oak and aniseed.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and sweet with lots of vanilla. Cinnamon and a little clove. Mint at the end. Unbalanced whisky; the nose is very bad, the palate and finish improves it.

    The nose reminds me of Strathmill, basically it is grassy with a lemon note.
    The palate is hot and fizzy at first then a little kiwi and just a hint of white pepper.
    This is quite a light whisky but all things considered it is not too bad and after all how many Ladyburns do you ever get to try, this is only my 2nd or 3rd so always a pleasure :)

    Do not add water to this... becomes really cardboardy and plasticky. And it wasn't really that good to begin with.
