  3. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Started off quite vegetal, greenish, light dash of fresh nutmeg, lemon candy and curious coco. Sort dusty cereals with layer of metalic nuance, reminded me of soaked barley in the cast iron steeping tank? More body build up in the middle with olive oil, fresh eucalyptus, fresh peat, heather, citrus and reeds, salted lavender and layer of charred notes. Evolving well at soft and gentle pace. (90/22)

    P- Elegantly soft and balance, ashy, compote tropical fruits, dash of salts and some liquorice. Fragile and on the thin side that demand serious effort to appreciate the quality thoroughly. (87/21)

    F- Medium-long, malty with lasting warmness, some ginger, dry. Soft and breezy. (87/21)

    Body/Balance- 87/21. Should be better, or may be is me not quite getting it. Shall try again from the fresh bottle again.

    Weighted Rate- 85pt
