  2. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Lovely on the nose and stunning on the palate, but the rather vulgar oak influence subtracts a few pleasure points.
    • Nose

      Exotic fruit salad and a carpenter's woodshop up front: plenty of sweet, jammy fruits and dusty oak / wood shavings. Then a creamy, chocolate-y spiciness becomes noticeable in the background, like Mexican mole. Light floral notes (lilies and daisies, perhaps?) and some chalk, which reminds me of Clynelish.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Excellent without water. Thick, full, and highly concentrated, with older, waxy / oily bourbon cask notes appearing first before giving way to an intense, luscious fruitiness (banana, pineapple, melon, lychee...).
    • Finish
      85 85
      At first I had no qualms, but after a while you do notice that this has a tart, mineralic edge to it, and the wood comes across more prominently (and more genuinely "oaky") than on the mid-palate, which docks it a few points.
