Quite oaky and tannic a touch like sherry or a good red wine, plenty of woody sugars and quite fragrant too. 85/100
Quite delicate nose and palate on this expression, biscuity and lemon-infused with the addition of ginger and thyme in places. Quite dessert-like and syrupy. Surprised this doesn’t feel like it is only 3 years old this one is more mature than its years. 85/100
Building on the light and floral Triple distilled base the Tokaji cask has added more stone fruit and rather a lot of tannin and oak wood spice. The addition of a little drop of water relaxed this one quite a lot and really adjusted the balance on the palate and finish. 84/100
Luscious, thick and voluminous on the palate, some odd rummy and woody dunnage warehouse feel and plenty of spices. Adding water moves the spice more into the finish, plenty of thick black fruits and sugars throughout. 85/100
Massively chewy and woody and with plenty of spices and tannins too. Combined with all the dried fruit this did have a Christmas pudding & mince pie feel to it, careful addition of water will probably get the best out of this one. 83/100
My favourite of the tasting, despite being a larger container with reduced wood influence the sherry has really worked wonders here.
The STR wine barrique has imparted plenty of colour and lots of sweet red fruit flavours and herbal nature into Lindores Abbey distillate here.
An insight into Lindores Abbey distillate signature following 3 years in 1st fill ex-bourbon cask. Revealing floral and tropical fruit flavours.
Annandale Man O’ Words 2015 Bourbon Cask 528 Whisky Review: Really quite fresh compared to the new make spirit, predominantly fruit driven here with lemons and apples and also lots of vanillin and woody oak spices from the bourbon cask. Traces of barley malt persist in the finish. 84/100
Roger Groult Reserve Calvados Review: A lovely base expression from Calvados Groult an unusual dried feeling to the fruit/apple in flavour and also texture too. 83/100
