  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Pear, apricot, grapefruit peel. Pretty dry. Palate: Lemon liqueur and green apple. Finale: Light pepper and apple peel. Verdict: The bitterness of the apple is a little supported, but otherwise it's nice overall.

  5. molar3rd scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: heaps of sweet luscious fruit: baked apple, sweet melons, pears , golden syrup. Pineapple in sweet sugary syrup. Ginger, vanilla. Lychee. Heaven.

    Palate: fruity and delicious. Pineapple. Vanilla. . Ginger and freshly crushed peppercorns. With fine mango and pear also become more dominant as well as wood and some coconuts do stewed apple crumble.

    Finish: cinnamon sticks. Vanilla. Creme brûlée and toasted wood and vanilla on top of ripe mango and melon.

    Bottom line:

    Pros – Tasty stuff alright. Loving the exotic fruit salad you’re getting there.

    Cons – Price. over 110 quid for a single cask at 46% is way to much money IMHO.
