  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Simple enough - clean and precise and a good aperitif rather than a night whisky
    • Nose
      81 81
      lemon-scented hand wipes, a touch of malt, aniseed, dry cleaning shop
    • Taste
      83 83
      lemon&sugar pancakes, icing sugar, and some baked apple pie
    • Finish
      82 82
      medium; some furring of the mouth - not that dry but rather spirit heavy

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The initial nose has sanded wood, fresh hay and floral soap, then develops citrus, ending up fresh and invigorating – lemon puffs, candied orange and lemon slices, tinned mandarins, lychee and honey. The palate has orange peel, lemon and lime, juicy pineapple and fruity boiled sweets, plus marzipan and tinned pears with vanilla custard. The reduced nose hints at a new, felt top hat, with more mundane notes of foamy bananas, fruit salad chews and chocolate coins. The palate now combines Hubba Bubba gum, pink wafers, apple sour sweets and dried apricots; suggestions of tansy leaf and warm spice on the finish.
