  1. karloff scored this whisky 93 points Specialist

    I might have got carried away but I was living the moment and that's what it's all about. If I had tried it tonight it might have been a different score. We will never know.

    Jesus, Karloff, 96 points for taste, perhaps I need to try this one?

    I really do love high quality grain whisky and this sits at the very top. This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger. It was a pleasure and a delight.
    • Nose

      On the nose there are gentle fruit notes just sitting in the background. Wood shavings and all bran cereal. Butterscotch and popcorn.

      This has taken me by surprise. The sherry influence and age has taken this to another level. If this was a blind taste I probably wouldn't think it was a single grain. This is wonderful. It's like biting into a lightly toasted muffin with melted butter followed by a toasted scone with jam and cream.

      A long finish and I must say the quality of the aged grain and the sherry influence remain to pleasure the taste buds.

    The oldes whisky I've tasted so far, and I found it yummie good.
    • Nose
      Quite spicy and zesty. Cardemom. Also rather sweet with clear sherry notes.

      What reminds me of fresh popcorn with salty butter.

      Burnt toffee and old wood, a lot of old wood.

      You can sort of smell the age, it smells old, old but in a nice way.
    • Taste
      Rich and gentle, coating mouthfeel.

      Dark fruits and sherry notes.

      Some of the spices from the nose is there, as is the wood, or the forest...

      I even find some of the popcorn.

      Very savoury.
    • Finish
      A long lasting woody finish. Very tasty wood with some chocolate.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Gingerbread, lemon meringue and brioche dipped in coffee. White
    chocolate-coated raisins and a subtly floral hint of elderflower.
    Palate: Soft and creamy, with mouthwatering vanilla taking centre stage. Hints of plum, cardamom and fried banana in the background.
    Finish: Cola cubes, old oak and a pinch of cocoa.
