greg_0277 gave this whisky 87 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

assez peu expressif au 1er abord car dominé par l'alcool. Puis se révèlent, du cuir, des épices, quelques fruits secs, vieux bois.

Taste

Les épices prennent le pas, douces (canelle, écorce d'orange) puis plus intenses sur le poivre. 

Un petit kick mentholé apporte une fraicheur inattendue en milieu de bouche. Une légère sensation boisée apparait en fin de bouche. L'alcool est encore bien présent.

Finish

Moyenne, toujours marqué par la sensation mordante de l'alcool.

Comments

Un bon whisky malheureusement un peu déséquilibré sur l'alcool.

Au nez,du malt ,de la poussière,du cuir assez neuf,un peu d'épices diffuses et des fruits légers (citron crémeux et pamplemousse!)et de la vanille!

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 87 points

A well-matured, soft, malty, and slightly grassy dram with no obvious flaws, but it is a bit boring to me. I am at the point where I look for certain flairs in a whisky, and this just doesn't have it. It is very well-priced however, and for that, I commend signatory. One of my favorite indies bottler.

First review here at Whisky Base....

This is some VERY good material... 

You will NOT be disappointed - except for the fact that it is probably all gone...:-)


Happy to say that I had a chance!!

My faith in Signatory at this level is fairly high - no real complaints so far.

Oh - this seemed to take about 30 days  to begin to come into its own....
