  8. Sapiano scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I prefer this one over batch 4. It's more balanced. Contains more vanilla. They may have used more american oak casks over european. It's less sharp to me compared to batch 4. But offers less sherry compared to batch 3. I like its little sulphury chocolate/coffee taste.
