  1. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Rich oak, vanilla, lemon, honey, hints of early grey tea.
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival with honey, lemon, spice, and vanilla. Definitely needs water given the high ABV.
    • Finish
      Long with honey, tea, lemon, and spice.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The Panel found themselves in a carpenter’s workshop to begin with, one with a brylcreem machine on the wall. There followed notes of orange icing, rhubarb and custard, pollen, dandelions, wild garlic and carrot cake. A lick of eucalyptus resin also reared its head. Water rustled up some pink grapefruit, jasmine, iced party rings, violets, star fruit and bourbon biscuits. The palate brought honey glazed barley, limoncello drizzled strawberry granita, lime jelly, pink wafers and rye spice. A little reduction also added jaffa cakes, mojitos and a wonderful green malt note of pure pot still Irish Whisky. A hastily assembled bouquet of wildflowers was presented in the finish.
