  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Warmth and malty sweetness on the nose. Yellow fruit not so marked for a Sauternes cask. In the mouth, not so fruity but generous on the caramel. Woody note and also and as very (too) often with Edradour / Signatory, alcohol. With a little water, this alcoholic bite disappears and leaves room in the mouth for a creaminess, with a milk chocolate and a lot of spices in the finish. A product with qualities and defects but which falls on its legs. I would not have suspected the use of a Sauternes cask!
    Enthusiasm 3/5

  3. Shane_IL scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    This was far too sweet for my liking, but had some very interesting things in the nose and palate you don't usually find in whisky. Try before you buy, but if you like sweet give it a whirl.
    • Nose
      Plums, Christmas pudding, rum-raisin ice cream, rich vanilla caramel, raisins, stewed pears, orange sponge cake.
    • Taste
      Dry, fruity, more plums and stewed pears, wine, slight salty notes, oak. 
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet, plums and raisin and some dry oak at the end.
