  1. el Gato scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Vanilla and toffee, in abundance. Fruity as well. Anise. Barrel influence. Tonic water! Soft spices.
    • Taste
      Oily feel. Toffee and vanilla continue. With times tonic water again. Citrusy now. Spicy, in particular cinnamon. Butter.
    • Finish
      A tad dry finish and quite long finish. More buttery with time. Still the tonic water. Spicy. Citrus in the very end

    Very nice grain whisky. Shows this surprising sweetness that you get with some of the nice matured grains. And a rare grain to see this bottled, Caledonian. Originally at an excellent price for a high quality whisky of a lost destillery. Now (End of April 2016) already sold out, no wonder..

    I'm not very much into grains, but this one has a very nice profile.
    • Nose
      Sweet with a lot of vanilla. Lime, fresh leaves, caramel, strawberry and apple. With water more citrus.
    • Taste
      A typical grain profile, but in a sweet and smooth sense. Vanilla, lemon, caramel, peach, strawberry, tonic and gentle spice. Water adds a salty touch.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, lime, tonic, caramel, cinnamon and spice.
