Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Chocolate and raspberry aromas, with rich brioche and stewed cherries.
Palate: Fresh red fruits - cherries and raspberries - combine with sponge-cake mix and cinnamon and a sprinkling of black pepper. Quite a big-flavoured dram, but balanced.
Finish: Sweet spice, red fruits, rich sponge cake.
Nose: Sweet fruit and oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
Palate: Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours – nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
Finish: Long and warming.

Bourbon like in flavour and very smooth and fruity on the nose. Not too harsh or peaty/earthy as some single malts can be. The Oak Sherry cask gives it a rounded, balanced taste with sweet and fruity notes. Great on its own, with a dash of ice or water, or a glug of cola on the rocks. One of my favourite singles.
Wow! Finally a dram to compare with the Macallan 12 year old Sherry Oak, but at half the price. Needs a drop of water to take the edge off, but quite, quite delicious.
Awesome, one of my favourites. Very moreish. I''m not an expert I drinks what I likes and this is something.
Nose is wonderful, but on the palate I found it to be harsh and very bourban like. Much better options for this price and for cheaper.
Excellent! Tasty, fruity and have enough complexity to give you a good drink. It isn''t ultimate in any level, but what a balance. Still looking for the best, but this is pretty close.
Before I tried this I would have said I didn't like whiskey, and would certainly never have bought any. This whiskey made me realise that I was missing something, and I will forever hold it in high regard!
Delicious beyond compare!
