  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    I've had quite a few disappointing experiences with the giraffe juice lately, different Legends and private bottlings.
    This was however quite OK. Not up to Signet standard, but neither is the price.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet port, dark berries.
      Raisins, plums, some vanilla.
      Toffee and very sweet chocolate.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A little weak on first arrival.
      However there is significant spice quickly developing.
      Sweet black sherries, red fruits.
      Fruitcake and chocolate.

      Spice stay on for a while.
      Confectionary. Sweet marzipan.
      Too sweet at the very end.

    Would buy a full bottle.

  4. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Over the course of the bottle I got buttery caramel, berries, a little peach, pineapple, pound cake, butterscotch, berries, toffee, biscuit, tropical fruits, a touch of cinnamon, candied nuts. Nice and thick on the palate. Adding a couple drops of water really brings out the caramel on the nose and some salty and oak notes on the palate.

    Originally I wasn't impressed with this whisky, but then I did some blind tastings and it beat out Nectar d'Or, A Tale of Cake, and the Original 10. Unfortunately now that I seem to really like it, it is no longer produced!

    Very successful port finish with fruity, sweet berries and beautiful oak flavor.
    • Nose
      Fruity, sweet wine gum with notes of chocolate. Then plums and blueberries as well as cinnamon and nutmeg. In the background citrus fruits and caramel. Very interesting and pleasant nose.
    • Taste
      Fiery and fruity start with lots of pepper. Then oranges, blueberries and creamy chocolate.
    • Finish
      Sweet and fruity with berries and long-lasting chocolate.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Red berries, which then turn out to be currants. Sour cherry. Green apples. Spicy, almost like a light soft cheese.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Red berries again, sweeter this time. Pear.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Rather long for age. Oak. Cranberry. Mon Cherie. Apricot. Becomes sweeter. Herbs.

  8. marmeladow scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The filling was tasted on November 29th, 2017 (69853). Color: impressive copper-gold ruby red.
    Leave time to open. Then bewitching mixture of oak and port, combined with the fresh fruit typical of the distillery, complemented by dark shades of raisins and dark chocolate. Orange tones too.
    A well-made whisky with port maturation

  9. Issie did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Blackberries, dark honey, some earth, grasses, dried fruits
    • Taste
      Honey, raspberries, lime, grapefruit, light pepper, gets really dry out the back

  10. detachedblue scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    This is a modern style sherried whisky, I don't like this very much because it tasted too common and engineered 
    • Nose
      Modern sherried Morangie, red fruits, vanilla from the bourbon casks, sweet and waxy, dates
    • Taste
      Baked apple, slightly bitter
    • Finish
      Short, sherry notes, one-dimensional
