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

    The rum cask finish isn't dominating here, leaving enough space for
    vanilla sweetness and oaky spiciness. The alcohol isn't quite mastered
    being a sort of impetuous especially on the palate, but it shows a
    lovely sticky and creamy texture. Only a few drops of water help to
    soften the alcoholic bite bringing delicate tropical fruits to the fore.
    A challenging but quite interesting dram.

    • Nose
      Fresh and sweet start on the nose with delicate vanilla and prickling
      lemonade. Reserved rum flavours and tropical fruits in the back,
      followed by subtle oak and a touch of pepper.
    • Taste
      Quite strong on the palate due to the high alcohol content, which,
      however, isn't really pungent. Subtle sweet and fruity with vanilla,
      tropical fruits and lots of lemons. This is followed by a warming
      spiciness of oak, black pepper and caramelised ginger. Sticky towards
      the finish with a lovely but a bit restrained rum sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and dry with oak and ginger. Sticky sweetness
      with tropical fruit and vanilla, followed by slightly bitter grape peel
      and hints of grapefruit on the tail.

      WITH WATER: Clean and fresh on
      the nose with a few drops of water. Significantly more lemons are coming
      through, lovely mixed with tropical fruits and sweet vanilla. The
      pleasant sweetness, however, is clearly tamed on the palate, while
      bitter notes of grape peel and pink grapefruit take over. The warming
      spiciness as well as the alcoholic bit are remarkably tamed. The finish
      is quite short with only a hint of spiciness and fruitiness, while more
      bitter and dry notes of grapefruit and oak shine through.
