  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    N- Relaxing fruits as found in the 13YO and Single Grain. Pleasant and breezy maltose with toasted nuance. Pronounce oak in the middle that evolved effortlessly to comforting fresh herbs. Some hops influence may be, as it has been finished in a porter cask. Enticing biscuity, creamy and fiery orange zest smokes underlay. (88/22)

    P- Well rounded, frizzy fresh with drift of unique bitter sweet fruits and liquorice mouth coat. Fresh herbs, and cloves. (86/20)

    F- Medium-long, warming, peppery, honey and toasty. (85/19)

    B/B- 87/21

    I like the nose quite a lot! But the taste is too unbalanced. Too astringent and immature. The finish is pretty decent again and quite long. I recommend trying it but I wouldn't get an entire bottle.

  3. breste scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Smells like a very bitter IPA and grapefruit. Tasty very different than expected. Very flat, very subtle sweetness, slightly bitter note. Extremely short flat finish.
    A malt that I can not win at all.
