  1. wheatfield scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    *Apparently this is for the US version of this bottle, which may have been a bourbon cask*Pours gold. Nose is sooty and earthy, some forest floor and mushroom, then sweet red fruits and peat smoke. Mouth is sharp and peat-forward on the front, then red fruits (strawberry preserves). Some nice earthy notes on the finish give it good balance. Thin palate. Nice.

    [December, 2012]  I found another dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  I took no detailed notes.

    Oh, this is a wonderful, old, sherry cask, most likely refill... deep, complex, oily, with a great initial salty entry on the first sip. Slightly phenolic. Definitely not austere, but with a slight fruitiness that complements the primary flavors well. You can almost smell the sea air with this one. A long, nice finish. Very, very well done.
