      Fresh fruitiness, bright and vibrant. Bitter Chinese traditional herbs, tea leaves, cooked fruits. More bitterness, and waxy.
    • Taste
      83 83
      I think some water will help. Fruit juice, passion fruits, blue berry cheese cakes. Borderline soapiness. Bitter liquorice candy, anti-biotic. Probably added too much water.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Finish is quite long, anti-biotic, bitter and sticky. Sharp and spicy.

    One of the great surprises in life, this whisky has not disappointed in any way
    Nose vulcanised liquirish, unusual but inviting
    Arrival bitter sweet liquirish, big and full
    Development dry bitter liquirish, little bit of sweet fruits and peppermint
    Finish dry bitter medium length
    An under rated whisky, I’ll rate other higher but they won’t be so good (!!!) underated, better than we would all think, if that makes sense

    N: Toffee over [refill Marsala wine hogshead] sherry-esque vibes.
    T: This robust modern style begins sour > sweet with boozy toffee-caramel and a sour sharp fruity development.
    F: Warm and salty.
    C: Unremarkably competent.

    Too bad that he wears off in the finish. Otherwise, a solid chocolate with nice sweet fruit notes and a wide range of flavors.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Clear and refreshing nose, with fresh bread dough mixed with yeast in the notes of ripe pears and green apples. Well integrated alcohol. A few drops of water help to open a little more. Now also vanilla pudding with chocolate sprinkles, pancakes with maple syrup. Kirsch. Now he wants to get away from the bright fruits and the raisins and dates.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Dry and sweet start. If there were not a pinch of pepper and some ginger, you could well imagine that he could drift away in the direction of "liqueurs". Luckily he does not. Raisins, dates, old greased leather. For 10 years of maturation, he has a good dose of oak in tow. Is becoming increasingly dry and throws something mineral, as it is more used to Springbank, on the tongue. Almonds and hazelnuts, raisin bread.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Just medium finish, dry. Rebuilds quite fast and leaves grape sweetness and pebble stone taste.

    This one grows on you.

    Simple at the start, it develops  nice complexity, mouth is on sugar side but not flat at all, very powerful.

    a very long finish that goes on and on. Very good indeed and swims like a champ. I noted only 89 but I expect more with an opened bottle.
