  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    Colour: Dark golden.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    Nose: Sweet, with a subtle citrus nose - fresh lemons. Some rum and raisin

    and hints of sherried wood.

    Palate: Smooth and sweet - marshmallow. A rounded hint of spice develops,

    and becomes mouth warming.

    WITH WATER:

    Nose: Initial rum and raisin notes, with hints of sweet Sherry. Some subtle

    summer fruits notes emerge and linger.

    Palate: Smooth and silky, with a pronounced sweet Sherry edge. Mouth

    warming with a hint of chilli warmth.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long and complex.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry casks.

    Whisky Style: Smooth and complex.

    Does this whisky have the "wow-factor"? No; I can't exactly say why I like this one so much - maybe because it tastes "uncommon", which gives it a bit of an extra. Tasted 20/04/2016 in a line-up of closed distilleries.  
    • Nose
      Candied sweetness at first, with grassy tones. Then tropical fruit (mango, very ripe pineapple, maybe even a hint of banana). 
    • Taste
      Creamy, butterscotch, honey, yet grassy. Also here the tropical fruitness coming forward after a while. 
    • Finish
      Warm, waxy and lingering at the roof of the mouth, almost sticky. Herbal hints.

  5. Sonett scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Pears, apples, vanilla, herbs, hay and oak
    • Taste
      Starts sweet with vanilla influence then turning into a peppery spicy taste. Oak from the barrel is there and so is the light fruits from the nose
    • Finish
      Long finish with fading spices turning into a sweet mixture of vanilla and bitter almonds
