  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very fruity and delicious however the oils are rather dense blocking much of the content to be deciphered.

      Candied apple, granny smith apples, asian pear. Sweet and floral. Thick and musky, densely packed with oils - reminds me of normandie butter. Some elements of the sea there, weird, but salt and kippers.

      Coconut santan and curry leaves.

      Fruit bomb, very Asian driven. Dried kumquat peels, boiled Korean pear, goji berries and jackfruit. Grapefruit, yes. Red guava (jambu batu air merah), check. Overly ripened papaya, to the point it is soft and mushy.

      Little sherry, mild in sweetness and density.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long lasting, oily, creamy and buttery. A very solid finish. Not dry, rather overwhelming on 'wetness'.

      Pineapples, soursop, mangosteen and something stringy; like a herbaceous and green plant. Could be lemongrass.

    • Nose
      85 85
      Fresh candied dram, stewed pears, very sweet, malty and some jammy sherry, very decently matured.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Huge, modern sherry, a bit oaky at the beginning, then becoming more fruit-driven, candied lime, huge grapefruits, then becoming slightly tropical, quite good balance
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long fresh lime, pineapple and grapefruits, sweet and cooling.
