  1. schero scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting dram. The nose is quite unusual but not inviting anyway. Mouthfeel and finish are really good.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Superficial nougat, milk chocolate, sour spruce needles, cold coffee, furniture polish, wet oak, light smoke fights its way through
    • Taste
      88 88
      Creamy and sweet chocolate, very pleasant, warming, neat oak flavor, raisins, light and pleasant dryness
    • Finish
      89 89
      Oak-like sweetness remains creamy on the palate, dry wood, sticks really well and stays long

    Notes from the SMWS website: (https://www.smws.com/fruit-welders-assemble)

    "The panel found this to be a beautifully integrated dram with a nose of figs, old toy cars, burnt orange twist, cedar and dark cherries. We also found a pervasive leafy quality with dunnage, hessian, light green and citrus fruits and chamomile tea. Water sweetened it globally we felt with notes including icing sugar, almond milk, malt loaf, Chambord, damp hay, clove rock, hibiscus and wild flowers. To taste there was an initial zing and fizz of sour plums, honeycomb, aged yellow Chartreuse, wild strawberries, blowtorched pears and gentle drying sensation. Reduced it became sweeter with barley sugar, lemongrass, banana bread, gingernuts, embers, fresh brioche and bay leaf. After 12 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead we transferred this whisky directly into PX for the rest of its maturation. "

    Initial price March 2018: 65 GBP
