  1. Owidram scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Right name. It is hedonism.

    Quite complex and deep nose on honey, polish.

    Mouth is perfectly balanced and it changes a lot with time in the glass.

    it's fresh too.

    Very well made; Loved this dram.

    Official Tasting Notes from Compass Box:

    The combination of grain whiskies from different distilleries and of varying ages has created extraordinary complexity and juxtapositions of flavour. Indulgent yet lively, unctuous yet light,  a deep, sweet caramel coconut succulence combining with exultant tropical fruits.

    C: gold

    N: a gourmet blended grain (vanilla, caramel) and fruit (coconut, a little melon), a tart side with caramelized pears, sweet brioche / waffle type. For once, I find that we feel the blended grain aspect quite well. Some spices. There is indeed this "bright" side noted by many, I find in any case that it reminds of brioche desserts, bakery smells ...

    B: very tasty: vanilla, creamy, a side of custard. Then the barrel expresses itself and we arrive on a rather bitter finish with spices (pepper, ginger), which counterbalances this brioche side.

    F: rather long, rather bitter (is it due to the sample?)

    A gourmet whiskey that reminds me of a Longmorn from Wemyss with an evocative name ("at the waffle merchant")

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not bad for grain whiskey, the aroma even tries to show depth and some complexity, the taste / finish is very rich and pleasant, tidy, but do not expect a miracle - grain is grain, although very qualitatively made, therefore, the question arises about the price that sufficiently large.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, grain, freshly birch birch, resin, coniferous wood dust, hot metal shavings in oil, stone dust.
    • Taste
      Thick, sweet-resin, pine needles, pine nuts in resin.
    • Finish
      Dense, warming, sweet caramel, oak, young shoots of pine, burnt caramel.
