This is a stellar cask strength dram and an object lesson that age is no precursor for a whiskey to be good. Dates, apricots, even pomegranate with that spicy kick in the tail... reminds me of the Aberlour A'bunahd. Sauternes finishes have potential to replace sherry monsters in my collection.... well not really, but they'll sure give them a run for their money!!
These wine casks can be a gamble but this one was excellent. Can be taken without water even at this strength - the Sauternes cask brings some sweet slightly spicy dried vine fruit flavour to the party and it's very yummy!
tried this at WL London earlier this year, it's great! Sweet, with dried apricots and a rich spicy finish.
