  1. penumbra scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The strength of the barrel brings a full-bodied wine, but unfortunately it does not increase the richness of its flavor. Oak and sugar account for almost half of the taste.
    • Nose
      White pepper, the stimulus of fresh oak board, honey, chestnut cake, white bread, vanilla, fruit jam, dried flowers (The wine reviews on wb all mentioned sherry, black question mark)
    • Taste
      Caramel, slightly peach, apple, citrus and other fruits, fruit acid, white pepper, oak
    • Finish
      Generally, oak.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur


    N: This one starts with a big sweet-funk potency and water wont subdue its eagerness. Potency is the word, and maltiness – a glossy maltiness with sweet barley grasses, a little baking [sponge>pastry base], buttered peas & sea kale, sweetened button mushrooms, musk-y wood.
    T: Edgy spirit, with a brash arrival. Water will temper things initially only for the pepper to make a scene later on. I found it needed 50/50 dilution for the malt to flow. Nothing profound here but if you have the inclination after this ‘work’, youll find some nice action.
    F: So, with 50/50 theres some chocolate-y, fruity maltiness – whisky-like finish :]
    C:  Good yet needy. A reaffirmation of my love for this OTR distillery, given the subtle complexities that manage to exist in such astringent conditions.Scores a B

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 3/5 (on two sips during a tasting evening)
    Whisky n ° 1308
    • Nose
      Pretty muscular on the sherry. A little spicy chocolate. Dried fruits. A little too sturdy for me.
    • Taste
      Strong, burned, but it goes well.
