  1. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Not bad for the unrestrained bourbon, a traditional bourbon set with a bias in the dust and berries-bilberry shades.
    • Nose
      Quiet, moist, freshly pilfered coniferous tree, raw cardboard, dusty paper, fir branches, resin, pickles, butter.
    • Taste
      Thick, sour-salted, resin, needles, old paper, old pickles, raw wood.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, needles, vanilla, young branches, a little pastry shades, nuts, cranberries.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Concker tea
    Flavour: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    The Panel experienced a huge hit of vanilla, followed by intense wood spice, cherry lips and rich creamy custard. Heady autumnal fruits abounded as a spiced pumpkin pie baked in the oven. The spirit simply oozed beautiful resinous sweetness. To taste, sweetcorn, fresh wood, really juicy! with oranges, lychees, papaya and guava. Comforting spices and melted butter accompanied fragrant gorse and cedar. Water increased the spice and added raisins and barley sugar sweets. Citrus notes balanced the butterscotch richness while subtle Pastilles Vichy (aniseed flavour) intrigued. To finish, we found beeswax, honeycomb, fresh wood shavings and Dolly Mixtures.

    Drinking tip: Expect power…
