pilgrim77 Note

Soft and fruity nose (a real mixed fruit bowl including tropical and orchard fruits as well as some citrus notes), with a hint of sherry casks giving rise to nutty notes and some grassy notes added to the mix when water is added. A spicy and slightly bitter note dominates the palate, with the fruits struggling to be heard. Medium-length slightly bitter finish too. Nice nose then, but slightly more challenging and less 'easy' on the palate.

This was a nice present from a good friend in 2003 when I retired. He was so right and I regret I didn't buy more of these bottles. It was a very good dram for a reasonable price. For the moment and a few hundred drams later my taste goes out more to the whiskies of Islay.

Nose

At first rather alcoholic, then sweetness. This needs air, badly! Now there are rummy notes – demerara sugar, tropical fruits (classical Longmorn distillate – citrus and ripe oranges), as well as saw dust. Less complex than I expected.

Taste

Sweet, caramelly, toffee, and a slight sharpness. Bright fruits – pears, apple compote, pineapple. Mentholated cappuccino and tannins.

Finish

Medium. Oak-forward, with more sweet caramel and honey.

Comments

To be honest, I had high hopes for this one. Its brilliance shines through on the nose (with time to breathe), but all-in-all an ordinary bourbon-matured malt without any edges.

    some tangerines. malty and spicy, a little honey too, a touch of oak.
t:  malty, with a touch of honey, the sherry influence is even more subdued than on
