Expert Junior CST1986 Tasting note

CST1986 gave this whisky 90 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

Soft spices, oranges, chocolate, cherries, wild honey and chestnut puree. Some furniture polish and leather in the background with vanilla and warm oak holding the whisky together. Skillfully blended and matured, very nice, warm and luxurious nose with a beautiful sherry influence that isn't overpowering the gentle complexity of the whisky.

Taste

Good supple attack and a beautiful mouthfeel. Not drying or overly oaky at all. Chocolate, prunes and raisins, dates covered with honey, blackberry preserves with vanilla, cinnamon and star anise. A tart oaky bitterness in the background is getting stronger (but not too strong). Some mentholy notes on the back of the palate.

Finish

Medium and satisfying (calling for another sip), with chocolate, cherry liqueur, mint and oak.

Comments

For ~150€ this is a real bargain. A very good selection and an excellent blend (bearing the title "exclusive" for a reason) from CWC. There is some very good malt involved, some decent aged grain whisky and very good active sherry casks. It's sweet, but not cloying. It's easily quaffable (for a 35yo), but not simple. It has a certain dryness, but it isn't too oaky. Just very good, like a good old-fashioned well-aged malt whisky from the old days. Recommended.
