  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Juniper berries, fresh and sharp charming fruit acidity with tobacco, rosemary and dashes of tonic water, for awhile I thought I am nosing a gin. Sour dough, vanilla and spices come thru, get feinty but not cloying. Liquorice, minty and jammy. Grassy side of wood shaves and reeds at tails. Marzipan, cloves and sweet rose petals whirl along. Highly evolving and vibrant for a 2YO. (90/22)

    P- Not as charms as the aroma. Plenty of reeds, scents of bamboo field, active wood extract with young stone fruits. Tinge of salts with more herbs come fore. Nicely creamy and zesty, promising and should get better with further aging. (86/20)

    F- Medium-long, surprisingly smooth, with subtle spicy notes at the back palate, dry grassy herbs remains with coat of vanilla and young fruits. (87/21)

    B/B- 90/22

    Cereal- 2, Fruity- 3, Floral- 2, Feinty- 2, Peaty- 0, Sulphur- 1, Woody- 3, Winery- 1
