  2. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Delicious, tasty dram. Great combination of fruity sweetness and peppery spice.
    • Nose
      It tingles slightly in the nose. Exciting mixture of a little pepper and sweet honeydew melon. After the first sip a little less with grapes. Becomes sweeter over time in the glass and shows marzipan.
    • Taste
      Mild and creamy on the tongue. Nice roasted aromas. Sweet tangerine. A couple of almonds. Pleasantly spicy on the palate.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Soft and fruity.

    [September, 2015]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85. I took no detailed notes as the whisky did not interest me.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Floral, intense, vanilla and crème brûlée on the nose. In the mouth, supple and spicy, the bourbon casks have worked much more than the Sauternes casks, the latter only rounding the corners. Final round and quite long. A little water adds relief to all this. A good whisky but clearly not the best Sauternes Cask / Finish.

    Enthusiasm 3/5
