Omar Fitzell Notes
So much going on with this. A lab almond nuttiness that is complimented by milk chocolate. Blackberries and cherries with clove and nutmeg spice.
Yes, it’s Cask Strength, but it takes it so well! Wonderful mouthfeel that releases peaches, pineapples along with dried fruits that the PX influence gives. Chocolate and green apples finish off the notes nicely as it mellows into a finish.
A warming long finish that leaves a beautiful mint note on the tip of my tongue before it disappears.
There’s a long story to this whiskey for another day but it’s my second time tasting it in the last few months and boy oh boy I love it more and more. I can easily say, this is one of my favourite whiskeys of the year. Bursting with flavours. Complex yet well balanced. It’s a winner all day, every day and twice on Sunday.
Al Higgins notes
Great cask influence. A lot like some Glendronach single cask releases on the nose. Exotic woods (cedar and sandalwood), raisins, marzipan, dried apricots, dates, dried figs, yeasty bread, spice and cocoa.
Sweet, fruity, spicy, woody in order of intensity. Exotic and complex. Flavours of Christmas cake, marzipan, liquidised raisins, dates and coffee cake.
This is really quite special. The cask(s) are everything here. If you like Redbreast or Glendronach single casks, then get this asap! I can’t recommend this enough.
