  4. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Overall this is good whisky. It is awfully sad this had been chill filtered and not cask strength. A clear example of ruining a whisky by trying to create something for everybody.
    Yet still not an bad whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      It is sweet, mellow, a little speculoos, a hint of sherry notes but overall it has bourbon notes, so sweet vanilla and a touch of wood.
      There is also the famous French whore perfume in here.
      It's an odd nose which touches quite some corners. Not bad though!
    • Taste
      83 83
      Thin and bitter arrival. After that sweetness, a tad leather and a hint of cigarboxes. A bit spicy. Hint of a sherry influence, but not much.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium length. It is a spicy, bitter, sweet, woody complex finish. It is a shame this whisky must have been chill-filtered which has striped away so much. This finish destroys it.

  9. The Prophet scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Whisky is worth its price, even if it struggles to find an identity. A good peppery touch with a bitterness that comes to an end.

  10. Totoro scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very playful and colorful nose, even a bit wacky. Very sweet, almost artificially so; the candyfloss comparison that can be found in the official tasting notes is spot on, but you could also say bubblegum. Beneath all these gummy, saccharine aromas, there's some active (and newish) oak, together with distinctly vinous notes (Port? Madeira?). Waaaay in the background, perhaps a wee leathery note, as if some older casks might've been involved as well to provide a sense of backbone. Not exactly mad for the nose, I have to tell ya.

    In the mouth, it's redeemed somewhat. The virgin oak works nicely here and gives some much-needed depth to the sparkly, youthful flavors of citrus fruits (tangerines, mainly), red berries (redcurrants and a wisp of raspberry), and vanilla-coconut pudding. Perhaps some popcorn as well, or is that just the overall sweetness? Good mouthfeel.

    The finish is on the short side. Some Seltzer / Tonic Water and swiftly fading bitterness.

    Verdict: a bit of a Frankenstein, cobbled together from disparate parts. Easy to drink though, and with a nice tannic kick. A summer affair, all the way.
