  3. Murphy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very exciting. As usual from the Society, not commonplace. Convinced by freshness and changing taste sensations.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, pear, a few almonds, ripe apples. Lemon pepper.
    • Taste
      Fresh cider, but not sweet. Coffee notes. A touch of dark chocolate. Again, the pleasant almond bitterness.
    • Finish
      Peppery and a bit bitter. Warm and dry, lemon and vanilla.

  4. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting NotesOn the nose neat we all agreed that this one is a great party opener with lots of dark chocolate, rum chocolate truffels and, to top it all, a rich, indulgent and creamy Espresso Martini to get everyone perked up. The taste neat was 'hellish'; hot and fiery like a Sherry trifle or a traditional  German Rumtopf both prepared with seriously overproof Jamaican rum. Attempt to douse the fire, add plenty of water and aromas of rum soaked sultana and boozy chocolate mousse with cherries soaked in brandy. The taste was now a mocha hazelnut cake with a Caribbean rum punch.
