    • Nose
      89 89
      Oak is present.
      The smoky tones: leather, gunpowder, and wax.
      Spare ribs with sweet marinade.
      Roasted grapefruit.
      Mineralig: hit a wet stone with a hammer. Coriander and a musty old Chesterfield sofa.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Mouth full of sweet fruit, honey candy, pear drops, blackberry jam, sour candy mats, you name it.
      Bitter orange peel but tasty.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium.Raisins, overripe plums and yet again those sweet marinated spare ribs.

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 88 points Moderator

    Very punchy and rough as it is young but it swims well with water and is pretty drinkable - probably not as smoky as expected but rather round and more fruity
    • Nose
      86 86
      Lots of vanilla, cream caramel candy, peanut butter, hints of orange peel, just whiffs of smoke
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very punchy, oily and liquorice, plenty of citrus fruits, black tea, salty, smoked ham, hints of peat, subtle sweetness - very good
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, burning, rough, more black tea and oak wood, more sweetness
