  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Lovely grain, really. Glad this did not disappear into J&B or Johnnie Walker.
    • Nose
      Nicely sweet on vanilla and a truckload of butterscotch with lots of milk chocolate. Hints of young banana, some cinnamon and some earthy notes. A mild floral hint as well. And a hint of varnish, but not as prominent as grain can sometimes display. This is very nice.
    • Taste
      It is wonderfully creamy on the palate and immediately sweet from vanilla and banana. Again something earthy, which I quite like even though I cannot quite identify it. Spicy warm too. Midpalate I even get some freshly ground coffee. Slowly but surely – from the third sip on – some tropical fruit emerges.
    • Finish
      In the long finish, I am happily surprised with even more tropical fruit – sultanas in the lead – but also something that reminds me of peanut butter. How crazy is that? But pleasant.

    Glue, malted grains, honey, corn, chocolate, vanilla custard, raisins and maggi.
