    Is that whisky? Definitely go by as gin or old barrel grappa, maybe even as raki. Very special

    This was not what I expected at all. These gin associated flavours were prominent all the way through. I’m not sure if the rum cask held one of those very herbal tasting rums, but it sure tastes like it. It just doesn’t work so well with the bourbon notes, they’re not unbalanced here, just don’t really gel well together. The finish on this was the most remarkable though, so much like Vick’s.

    • Nose
      Wow what a peculiar nose. One of my friends wrote something about how this is quite similar to the juniper scent in gin and he was spot on. Underneath that there’s some fresh cucumber. Fennel. Bitter green grass. Bok choi. Under all that the bourbon cask influence reveals itself, some tropical fruit, sandalwood and vanilla. Along with that creamy Glen Keith porridge note.
    • Taste
      More gin related stuff. Juniper. Creamy vanilla. Bitter wood, oh so bitter after the initial hit of flavour. Then slides into a very strong anise note.
    • Finish
      Long. Anise. Porridge. Juniper. Menthol. Vick’s cough syrup. Wintergreen. A little candied pineapple peeks through at the end.

  5. Fernet Branco scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    He's really special!
    The nose says: This is a gin!
    The tongue says: This is a gin!
    The (rest) head says: Can not be!

    Highly interesting malt with a very strong juniper menthol note. It's hard to believe that the 21-year-old has matured in a 1st-Fill Bourbon barrel and was then finished for another 24 months in a Jamaica rum barrel. I am very pleased! Hmmm ... the label says "Highland Single Malt" - maybe they are totally lost, and it's a gin after all? ;-)
