  1. DimiIkon scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Blind Tasting: March 2022
    • Nose
      Varnish, oak tree, old furniture. A mild sherry sweetness and some citrus.
    • Taste
      Thin but good. Sweetness of red berries, light chocolate and newly brewed coffee. Then some bitterness of oak wood, creaminess, sun-ripened raisins and dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Fruit sweetness, with dried fruits, some creaminess and a little bitter chocolate. Thin, would have benefited from more alcohol.

  2. SFWC scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Not a great whisky but a very good one. Refill sherry allows the barley to breathe and the palate has complex savoury and pleasant bitter notes among the bags of different citrus flavours. Bit of obe on the nose for us but past that it was all orange chocolate and very enjoyable. Old school and old style. 89 for SFWC

  3. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Fermenting apples, metallic paint, caramel varnish, milk chocolate, cold cooked chestnuts, chrome, fruity [rhubarb & plums] with crumble and a hint of oily peat. Smells a bit rough in places - qwurky and innocuous overall.

    T: Lots of fizz from an astringent young spirit which has been well tempered by the caramel. Peppery, grassy, cocoa powder and single cream notes ensue but it all feels spirit led with caramel a close second. There are signs of some years of maturation but not many. Adding water brings a fruitier and maltier cohesion but the finish is not affected.

    F: Green apple skin, vanilla cream and a fresher raw spirit,

    C: I didn’t mind drinking 5cl of it but sadly this isn’t a great whisky.
