  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very impressive dram with a gorgeous nose and a surprisingly very
    dry taste. The bourbon barrel brings delicious and amazing flavours of
    fruit to the fore. Significantly improves with a splash of water. Gets
    then rounder with delicate fruitiness, tamed mix of lovely spices and a
    creamy caramel note. Lovely, well balanced and pleasantly tasty.

    I thank Joe Seidel from Joe's Malt Shop for the sample!

    • Nose
      Very fruity on the nose with apple sauce, passion fruit and delicate
      notes of white jelly baby. Vanilla and subtle caramel emerge with a
      slightly floral touch of summer flowers in the back.
    • Taste
      Very sweet on the palate but significantly dry at the same time. Barely
      fruity, with lovely notes of vanilla and honey lingering with creamy
      caramel and a whiff of oak towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and honey-sweet with tender spiced oak on the tail. Pleasantly round.

      WITH WATER: Lovely fruity on the nose with a splash of water. Intense
      scent of white jelly baby. Significantly spicy on the palate with oak,
      pepper and ginger. Sweet and warm with creamy caramel, vanilla and
      slightly dry oaky tannins. The finish is medium long, soft and sweet
      with pleasant sticky honey and warming spiced oak.
