- This reminds me of Flaming Heart, only slightly more rewarding. Another great dram by Compass Box and Kensington Wine Market.
Rich and subtly smokey with honey, vanilla, and oak.
Sweet, rich, soft, and subtly smokey on the palate. Sweet peat, honey, spice, vanilla, and mild citrus.
Long. The mouth fills with subtle smoke and honey.
- I just opened this recently. I have no idea how KWM still have this whisky in stock. A really fantastic dram and I am shocked that it's not been sold out yet.
Subtly smokey, ethereal and smokey sweet on the palate with a great backbone of rich spice. Another home run by Compass Box and KWM. I plan to pick up another one or two of these next time I have a chance to buy a few bottles. I'll post my full review and score after I've gotten through most of the bottle. Get this while you have a chance.
"...Mix of 1st fill bourbon barrels, refill hogsheasds and French Oak barrels from Clynelish, Caol Ila, Dailuanie, Teaninich, blended with 30yo Cambus and Cameronbridge + 2% old sherry cask malt whisky from an unknown distillery. The reason for the low strength is that the grain whisky had fallen to 41% ABV..."
today this whisky is still available at Kensington Wine Market, but they cannot sell/send it outside of the state of Alberta / Canada (hey, we have CETA since yesterday!), but it is on auctions in the UK these days. original price: 159.99 CAN$ (around 110 EUR). link: https://www.kensingtonwinemarket.com
