    A good whisky unfortunately a little imbalanced on alcohol.
    • Nose
      not very expressive at first because it is dominated by alcohol. Then come out, leather, spices, some dried fruits, old wood.
    • Taste
      Spices take precedence, sweet (cinnamon, orange peel) then more intense on pepper. A small mint kick brings an unexpected freshness in the middle of the mouth. A slight woody sensation appears at the end of the mouth. Alcohol is still present.
    • Finish
      Medium, always marked by the biting sensation of alcohol.

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, malt, dust, fairly new leather, a little diffuse spice and light fruit (creamy lemon and grapefruit!) And vanilla!
    • Nose
      fruit, malt, wood, vanilla, fruit return more on lemon, chocolate.
    • Finish
      a bouquet in the palace, whose subtleties must be sought until the end.

  5. SimpleSample scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting nose, the taste makes me hard. For cask strength mild.
    • Nose
      Fruity, light herbs, tea, a bit of glue (bourbon cask?), Later some sweet (but rather milk chocolate)
    • Taste
      Sweet, warming, mild with light spice,
    • Finish
      Medium, light spice and again a little sweet

  7. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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....
