  1. Sensefreak scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Traditional grain nose but heavy abv. Needs more than 30 min. to open in the glass.
    "Explodes" in my mouth. Long lasting vanilla on the palete. Light peber, spicy and a touch of fruity notes.
    One drop of water made it more human and elegant.

    I have almost no experience in single grain, and that makes me want to deepen ...
    • Nose
      Vanilla and peppered. At this level of alcohol, adding water is no longer really an option. The water makes the dram thicker and expresses itself clearly and fully after 10 to 20 minutes. All this is not very far from a quality rye.
    • Taste
      Long fruity with a good dose of vanilla. Small dumps of white pepper and various aromatic spices
    • Finish
      Dry down in the final on a long fade out cereal. Very pleasant sensation that lasts in finesse several minutes

    I can't help it, but I 'm a huge fan of old grain whisky's. I like the pencil shavings nose and the sweet flavours a lot.
    • Nose
      Light and clean. Spirity. Pencil shavings. Some grassiness. Melon and pineapple.
    • Taste
      Waxy and mouthfilling. Very sweet. Honey and vanilla. Bourbon whiskey style. Canned Del Monte Pineapples. Slightly peppery. Mellow and juicy.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet. Oakiness. Complex.
