    Young and feisty! This Butt was quite savory, with lots of grilled/roasted blends of spice. The brightly fruity distillate can shine through though so all is well.
    • Nose
      This is obviously young! Sugared pears, caramel cookies, and cocktail cherries. Walnut oil, sesame seeds! With water it turns into a more white-fruity concoction of peach and banana. Pretty solid!
    • Taste
      Sweet-sour arrival. Mint chocolate, roasted nuts, more banana, and caramelized cucumber. A tiny bit of gunpowder with a splash of citrus and vanilla as well.
    • Finish
      Medium. A rather sweet departure, with honeyed biscuit and banana. No tannins to be found here whatsoever.

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Fun, but too young overall, I don't really see the point of this.
    • Nose
      Y.O.U.N.G. nose, on sour pear, Federweisser, and pineapple. Sweet, with cookie dough and a sense of fruit gums. Would've guessed this was refill rather than first-fill sherry-matured.
    • Taste
      Needs water. Nice umami character that pushes aside the fermentary, new-makey aromas. All kinds of meaty, savory, soupy goodness, with an herbal edge (parsley). Red apples, some creamy custard, perhaps a sour blueberry or two. Nice, initially, but it flattens out after a few seconds.
    • Finish
      Again: young.
