  1. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is a fruity fruit bomb, my god does this have a lot of berry flavors in it. Overall it’s a very balanced, fresh and lush dram that packs some power in it. I now understand the name chosen for the dram, it indeed is a White Wizard!

    For me this would be the perfect hot summer night dram. Well selected cask and good quality spirit, well done!

    Very clean and fresh spirit with good taste. Can spend hours with one dram just investigating and trying to find new flavors but this one is very consistent in its delivery.

    (Rating interval 83-88)
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla on the nose, marshmallows and lemon curd but not much else. With water some soft oak notes appear.
    • Taste
      Warm and substantial on the palate with vanilla sugar, some bitter honey, soft oak and sweet lemons. Water do not change the flavor profile much besides adding some sour apple notes but makes it more approachable as the alcohol nip is going down.
    • Finish
      The finish is strong and powerful with some bitter lemon, grape fruit, honey again, and hints of sugar icing and vanilla. Water brings forward some more oak and green apples to the finish.
