  1. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Cask No. 29.221
    Dark, deep and mystic 
    The nose insinuated fruity sweets (wine gums, cherry Tunes) but its core was herbal, mineral, cleansing smoke in an American Indian sweat lodge – one panellist got a cigar-smoking artist in his studio. The palate was rather dark, deep and mystic – bramble jam sweetness against ash, tar and liquorice root. Water shifted the nose to a softer, sweeter place (vanilla, fresh fruit salad) but nonetheless the impression was an island blackhouse with creosoted fence, roofing felt on a wooden coal bunker and sheep dip nearby. The reduced palate struck a reasonable balance between fruity sweetness (candied orange, limeade) and lively, medicinal smoke.
