- Very akward and yet so interesting, but I would have chosen a different spirit.
Whisky and gin, gin spices, fruity, later more gin influences quite interesting (reduced: more of the Glen moray spirit comes alive)
Sharp, warming, very spicy from the gin (juniper) (reduced: fruit, vanilla, spices and quite mild)
Warming with spiced vanilla and a touch of sweetnes
- An interesting mole, an exotic barrel of gin adds new shades and derivatives - clearly the gin is felt in both the aroma and in the taste / finish, giving sharpness and freshness, on the whole very invigorating and vibrant whisky, good work with the fortress, no discomfort, and because almost 60%. A little brings the foundation, sometimes getting out with too sharp notes of moonshine and grain, which somewhat spoils the final evaluation.
Clear, dry, the first nose - raw wood, braga; dry boards, herbal notes - yarrow, motherwort; light coniferous shades, gin, vanilla, sweet confectionery motifs - corn impregnated with jam, sugar icing; when they heat up they get out moonshine and grain, however, very harmoniously fitting into the overall picture.
Powerful, dense, sweet with light sour-bitter hues, black pepper, gin and tonic, orange candied fruits, nuts, light moonshine notes.
Spicy, sweet-lemonade, tonic, light bitterness, nuts and homemade pastille.
- If you like whisky and gin, you have to try ... exciting combination, but certainly this whisky remains special.
- Absolute must for ginfans. Nevertheless, I would have liked to try it without the finish. The sweet malt was certainly already there =)
A grassy, grainy juniper note at the beginning, slightly metallic and bitter, after a time comes cotton candy, gooseberries, roasted malt, Kellogg's Frosties
Sweet, again the roasted malt, popcorn, honey, then the full broadside juniper, slightly bitter, oak spice
Bitter, oak, juniper, slightly peppery, then comes back later sweet malt
- I scored this one 79. The gin influences are interesting and quite pleasuring. The quality of the Moray spirit is unfortunately sub par. Would love to taste this experiment with a decent spirit
- N: I never find the sound of gin casks that appealing, unlike rum casks that sound far more desirable. I’m definitely tasting the gin influence here. It’s like a whisky from a very new distillery making gin & whisky [barley-vodka of sorts], in Alembic stills - very natural and clean.
T: Clean and honeyed with very little gin influence at this stage.
F: Stays clean, honeyed and only a little oaky with a little boozy, Cadbury's chocolate finish.
C: Rather a nice marriage. Blog
