Whiskey Advocate 90 points - The Twin Wood release is the result of refilling this triple distilled single malt from its bourbon casks into oloroso casks for a 21-month finishing period. This produced a wonderfully dry nose of macadamia nut, pepper, and baked apple crumble. Rich sweetness, more sherry fruit, and raspberry, which develop with plum notes, some bitter fruits, old chocolate, and a little heat. Fruity sweetness is maintained through the finish.

Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Malted chocolate, banana, Brazil nut, and warm brown butter marry well on a rich, toasty nose. The palate offers ripe tropical fruit and nutty, salty sweetness before finishing with long, roasted allusions to roasted almond and creme brulee.
