    [June, 2017]  I had this dram during a Feis Ile tasting at Bonn.

    The colour is amontillad and the texture shows fast legs and tears.  The nose is a little punchy first but this goes away quickly.  After that a sweet winey and herbal (camphor and the like) profile pops up.  The arrival in the mouth is hot, peppery and not very much coating.  The taste itself is very sweet (honey-vanilla-winey) and spicy, surprisingly almost no herbs are left from the nose.  The finish is rather short, peppery and I would call it "unimpressive".  With water the whole dram gets smoother but the nose flattens (really!) and all is more bourbon-ish.  Not sure if it is better neat or with some water added (be careful, do not add too much water!).

    This an easy drinkable modern designed whisky that smells and tastes exactly like that:  designed...

    • Nose
      beautiful vanilla, this beautiful new Jura note, coffee, cocoa, earthy, very light spice, smells slightly of sherry, which is probably what defines the port, fine vanilla, beautiful sweetness
    • Taste

    • Nose

      At first a bit dusty with dry light wood, then a nice creamy sweetness shows up. Some marzipan, some vanilla, then in the background sweet reddish fruit notes. Some hay is also evident, as well as delicate dry nut notes.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Again slightly dusty with dry light wood. The delicate sweetness also reappears. Dry tart chocolate, dry nuts / nutshells. This is followed by tart herbs and damp hay / straw.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Pleasantly dry, delicately bitter, a bit woody. Unfortunately also a bit bubbly / alcoholic.

    Overall I thought this was pretty good, not as peaty as I like, but fine. It was unremarkable at first (but not poor), but the flavors were interesting and intense.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Nutty, honey, cerealy, malt. Winey wood.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fruit, big nutty flavor, major pepper.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Some smoke, less pepper but there. Smokiness grows with sips. Salty on the tail end. Medium.

    A bit sharp on the nose, the port adds nice grape and milk chocolate to the palate, a little thin and a shorter finish, but still worth trying as it is tasty!
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sharp wine/port notes, caramel, sweet,
    • Taste
      90 90
      Grape sweetness, pepper, vanilla, chili pepper, cream, milk chocolate
    • Finish
      87 87
      Shorter, but leaves behind pleasant grape and vanilla, hint of mint

  8. DulischM scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I love port barrel whiskys, the great berry flavors come into their own, and the alcohol is also well integrated. Intense vanilla aromas meet ripe berries.
    • Nose
      Sweet with vanilla and syrup and very berry with cherries, plums and wild berries on the nose. Raisins and dried fruits create the impression of a jam before it gets more exotic. Liquorice and cinnamon paired with flavors of lime and sweet and sour cranberries. Something flowery with honey can also be seen.
    • Taste
      Sweet, dark and creamy again in the mouth. Ripe berries with syrup and honey meet some tangy liquorice and oily nuttiness. Citrus aromas, oranges and vanilla are noticeable underneath, maybe there is also some sweet pineapple.
    • Finish
      Very sweet finish with wild berries and vanilla, with a little cinnamon.
