Member Ratings and Notes

This is a whisky that demands you wine and dine it before it puts out. But its worth it. With time exposed to air and to develop on the palate, its a very interesting and stimulating experience. 


N: Fruity, berry tart, apple pie, smells so good.


P: Orange rind, creeal malt, currants, raisin and rum, butter. Slow at first then explodes with these flavors.


F: Currants.  Dries out for a while.  Then after a little time the tannic elements come out, some spice.  Really keeps you contemplating what's going on. Will go under your radar if you don't pay attention. 


Nose:  Light and springtimey.  Fabric softener

Palate: Walnut oil and flavored soap (not referring to it as soapy, a bad thing).  A solid but not stellar spirit.

N: Intense citrus.
P: Big fruity profile with bananas and peaches.  Oh yeah, I'm getting more into this type of profile.
F: Gets a little spicy and vegetal, what a way to finish. 
Apricot, spice, sherry. Delicious. Fruity without being weak; a fruit monster with punch. This one is fantastic. 
Ooh, this is all about really neat, fruity stuff all intertwined in a.... fruity adjective goes here.... with something approaching spicy. A really pleasant whisky, hard to describe but not to drink. 
Nice spicey sweets and fruity tropical flavors.  A really great nose with more spice than fruit on the pallate.  Exactly how I like it.  The finish has some heat and is medium.  One of the better profiles. 
Sweet, candied, fruity nose. A bit more mellow on the palate, some sherry, banana, oak, lots of vanilla, very smooth. Much longer finish than expected. Very good.
