  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Now in the visitors centre, we all assemble around the visitors cask and watch Eddie fill a bottle for the dramming table. Made from a mix of bourbon, sherry and new wood-matured stocks, here are my initial impressions at the time:

    C: Certainly there’s activate wood over subtle sherry, though it smells cask-balanced enough. Honeyed caramel, full-bodied, rich, less astringent though with similar fruitiness [apple etc,.] as the standard Glenfiddich 12yo, good travel, decent length finish.

    Scores +/-85 provisional points at the distillery. Having a proper chance to try it later on around the [Whisky Lounge] dramming table, I find it thus:

    N: Adding water promotes the lemon citrus qualities, but it’s a swampy blend-like start overall.
    T: It really needs water but then doesn’t hold up when diluted, becoming spirity, sugary, and tangy.
    F: Idiosyncratic of the Speyside style, it becomes more a putty-malt by the tail.
    C: Tasting fabulous at the distillery, but far more innocuous in what one might call more conducive conditions over the next few days.
