  3. Macheye scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    As good as its word – this is indeed a burst of Vanilla, but more so on the nose than on the palate where both the youthful grassy notes and overriding cask spice both take over. Simplistic, but pleasant enough, especially if you like shades of youngish 1st fill ex-bourbon.

    • Nose
      A burst of vanilla as promised! But, there’s more to be said than just that. The vanilla is well-rounded and is supported by notes of fudge, whipped cream, crystalline ginger and some earthy and grassy nuances. There’s a good basket of fruits here, certainly pears, but also some lemon peels too.
    • Taste
      A good mouthfeel that’s got some pleasant body with some viscosity. Vanilla (of course), but less one-sided and in your face that on the nose, with much more cask spice coming to the fore – ginger again, joined by pepper, slight cinnamon and a hint of salinity that licks on the tip of the tongue. The grassiness and some delicate hays come through much more dominantly now, and take over some of the fruitier notes we identified before – they’re still there, but on the down low compared to herbals and spices.
    • Finish
      Short to medium in length and emphasising the peppery notes. Slightly astringent and drying.

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    Well, nothing I need somehow again, everything very mushy and somehow not my direction.
    • Nose
      Vanilla (what a surprise), fudge, marshmallow, young honey and light oak chips, not much more, some citrus like shallow pineapple juice or lemon juice but watered down
    • Taste
      Toffee, a lot of malt then first, somehow vanilla, but only later and no explosion at the beginning as it is on the pack;) Young herbal honey and young oak chips, a little hops, saffron
    • Finish
      Rather short, hops, malt, something from a stable and a little nut
