  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A boldly cask-forward whisky, but since it's a good quality cask that isn't so bad. If you like that kind of a thing you'll find this one pleasing as I did, but it might be too much for some. Lots of good quality milk coffee notes in this one. Also some more unusual ones like raspberry lemonade, and then some butter and grasses.

    Along with cask 19yo cask 527 (89pts), I tasted this with Arran Millennium Casks (87pts) and Clynelish 18 TWE for The Whisky Show 50,6 % (90pts).edit: After the bottle was half gone I had to downgrade my initial score by one. There is a certain harshness to the taste that is both in the cask and in the spirit that is an almost off note, an aroma between some makeup and plastic, which stops this from being an 88pts whisky by my count. Seems to be at its best with more water rather than less.
