General description

Not enough smoke and a little too sweet for my taste but if you like whiskey a touch on the sweet side, this one is not too much so. The Balance of spice and citrus is pretty good and not overwhelming.

General description

Lovely nose and palate. It's very smooth, there's no burn or nasty aftertaste. Slightly above average for me. It just lacks some character… And missing a bit of heat…

Nose

Orange, plum, new wood, sherry, malt...

Palate

Caramel, fudge, spicy, sherry, prunes, acacia honey...

Finish

Tannins... fruit cake...

General description

Good presentation! Solid whisky with little faults. Warm spices and orange marmalade are predominantly enhanced by the sherry cask aging.

Nose

Fruit, vanilla, orange, warm wood notes.

Palate

Initially dry, wood with vanilla notes and Sherry butt linger on the palate. At the back discovered some orange marmalade, nuts and citrus notes

Finish

Orange marmalade and warm spice note. A bit strong on the alcohol as it could use maybe a couple more years of aging.

General description

Sweet nose with sherry leading notes of fruit. Fruit on palette with hints of Christmas spices. I will always stock this one to share with folks new to scotch. Easy to drink but has more than one note so not boring. Becoming borderline expensive for what it is. Value hurts the rating.

Fruité est ma première réaction ! Le bois et les fruit, un peu du type bourbon tout comme le Balvenie 12 Doublewood. Extrèment bien balancé et très doux. Finale un peu courte ou le fruit reste toujours bien présent.

Lovely on the nose, I'm getting toffee and citrus. The nose underwhelms the taste however, which is a shame. The taste is still great, would recommend.

this is and incredibly rich and smooth whisky, with a strong smell of candied walnuts. tastes great too, like a Christmas cake - finishes with those walnuts again. a few drops of water bring out orange. could be more complex and meatier on the tongue.

General description

one is led to believe that the spice is going to provide a complex scotch with a long finish. However, the complexity comed from the sweet citrusy taste. Yhere is some spice on the finish but what enters one's throat is a warm sweet refreshingly smooth scotch. I am going to work through a couple of bottles over the next few months and see if my opinion changes.
