  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A decent whisky - the 10 years wasn't wasted (although it could have learnt a bit more from its decade - like a lazy student who has promise but can't be bothered trying).
    • Nose
      Christmas cake - a heavy fruit cake.
    • Taste
      Sweet on the palate, quite thick in texture, some dull spice.
    • Finish
      Gentle with a lingering note of spice.

  5. peatbogger scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Surpricingly sweet and complex for a 10yo.

    I found it just as good, if not better than for instance Macallen 10yo or even the 12yo.
    • Nose
      mild charcoal smoke, very ripe sherry notes, not over powering but quite a bit of vanilla, rich leather, some fruityness of orange and honey melon, dark coco powder in the background
    • Taste
      very nice inital sweetness of mild dark berries and chocolate brownies, followed by a prickly spicy feel on the sides and back of the tongue, rich and fatty mouth feel.
    • Finish
      the brownies stay, and get a sprinkling of almond shavings and a small topping of sweet vanilla custard cream, finally ending on old drying leather
