  1. Totoro scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    As good as ex-bourbon-matured malt whisky can be (at least below the 30-year-threshold).
    • Nose
      91 91
      Great from the get-go, with a near-perfect coexistence of minerality and fruitiness. Limestone, wet rock, beach sand, papaya, mango, lime, and grapefruit. Extremely elegant and refined. After a short while, you get an extra element of starched linen and waxed cloth, and it seems more oily and full now. Apart from that, it doesn't change very much with time and/or water. Perhaps it becomes just a bit more well-rounded and cohesive. It's also not mind-bendingly complex. Instead, it's simply very, very delicious and coherently straight-forward in the best of ways.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Spot on. Juicy attack devoid of any burn whatsoever, like a mouthful of freshly squeezed multi-fruit juice. And it gets fruitier from there on out, with cascades of tropical flavors rolling in waves across the palate. All this is supported and held in check by the aforementioned minerality, along with a soft and understated bitterness. Immaculate.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The fruits recede gradually, yet swiftly. Perhaps the finish could be just that tiny bit longer and more persistent in its sweet/fruity aspects. In the end, the tartness wins out, but the waxy aspect also lasts for quite a while. Though there may be room for an even higher ceiling, this is undeniably a high-quality experience.
