Customer Rating
Similar to 2013's The General, The Circus was blended at a young age and left to marry in a combination of first-fill and refill sherry butts for many years. This is an elegant well-aged whisky with notes of dried fruits, malt, almond and hazelnut.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Clean, bright and fruity at first, with aromas of stewed apple, raisins and sultanas, candied orange peel, cinnamon and clove lying behind, plus notes of freshly grated citrus zest, chocolate sponge and woody spice. 

    Palate: Big sherry influence, with boozy sultanas, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, then fresher notes of green apple coming through, as well as a dark, rich note of Maya Gold chocolate. Soft, rich mouthfeel – very moreish.

    Finish: The spicy dark-chocolate notes last a long time.

    Comment: All the components sit happily together – this is a very well-crafted blend, with the perfect balance between the rich fruit and spice.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    A lithe frame and opulent mouthfeel showcasing the supple softness of mature grain and the complexity of aged Blended Scotch Whisky.

    Brimming with dried fruit character, a luscious maltiness and nuances of almond and hazelnut.

    An absolutely amazing dram, tons of rich sweetness and very complex flavor. Definitely worth the cost of admission!
