    This has aged superbly
    • Nose
      My, my that is lovely on caramel, Turkish delight, fudge, honeycomb, cinder toffee, a little ginger.

      After a short time some apple comes through, toffee apple actually.
    • Taste
      Everything on the nose is here but the apple is more pronounced and, I honestly thought I could taste tomato juice, never had that before?????

      On reflection it isn`t and its quite fat on the palate, there is salted caramel in the mix.
    • Finish
      Long, luscious, satisfying.

  7. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful whisky. I can't imagine anyone not liking it.
    • Nose
      Rich malty toffee, floral overtones, some orange notes, demerara and cinnamon. Full of charm. Water gives nougat and savoury spices.
    • Taste
      Massively concentrated orange toffee with a little fabric softener, heaped with cinnamon and boiled fruit sweets. Beautiful stuff.
    • Finish
      A little touch of cognac. Really delicious. Water releases the floral grain and makes it more astringent.

    I really enjoyed this a lot. Put this in front of people blind and they will sure say it is a special, but very pleasant bourbon. Was sold for less than 200 EUR back in the day, which is actually dirt cheap if you think about it. Nowadays, you can hardly find it.
    • Nose
      Oh, that nose is very much like a bourbon. Quite some vanilla, coconut, almonds, milk chocolade. Then the fruit comes out. Light touches of citrus, with oranges in the lead, and loads of spices such as pepper, nutmeg and a pinch of saffron. This has undoubtedly quite a bit of grain whisky in it, but I am not complaining.
    • Taste
      It is creamy on the palate and again I feel like I am sipping a bourbon. Loads of oak and then suddenly: kaboom! An explosion of citrus. Lime, lemon, oranges and quite a bit of pink, bittersweet grapefruit. Some black tea, banana and even corn. Halfway through, the wood puts its foot down, with a lot of tannins, cloves and pepper, leaving the mouth completely dry.
    • Finish
      The finish is tremendously long, stays warm and spicy.
