  2. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice blend from two rare distillers (Kininvie and Girvan). Only the 40% is the "problem". :)
    • Nose
      Vanilla, milk caramel, malt, grain, floating island, coconut and cereal.
    • Taste
      Creamy. Vanilla pudding, honeyed milkfoam, banana shake and coconut milk.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, spicy.

  3. Macheye did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    You can’t argue this isn’t drinkable and well balanced – but at the same time, it’s just incredibly dull. The extensive marketing text behind this bottle makes real play of it being ‘married in American oak’ – oh come on – however, what it’s really saying is that a lot of a first-fill casks have been used to pump enough vanillins into this whisky to at least make it good enough to bottle. However, at over £150 for 50cl and at 40% ABV I’ll let you judge for yourself whether that’s really good enough.
