  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Forward and unpretentious. Luscious of chocolate and toasted honey.
    Interesting ice cream soda frizziness. Very fragrant, fresh and smells
    just perfect.

    Palate:- Sprinkles of spices on sweet floral malt. Oaky dry mouthfeel. Balance and round.

    Finish:- Smooth as silk. Very charming and a beauty. But just slightly short on the tail.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    He is slightly smoky !!?
    Nobody writes about it here.
    Am I imagining it, or is it not smelling anybody because it's not on the bottle?

    When I first tasted this I was not very impressed but it did improve as the bottle went down, still nothing special but is fine everyday drinking malt.

    Nose: Oak, oaky Spices, Vanilla.  Sweet, some Eucalyptus or Mint. Gets warmer with some malty notes and red Apples. 

    Taste: Peppery arrival, not overpowering but gentle and easy. Sweet with some nice viscosity but not oily. Some apples again.

    Finish: Smooth finish, with some nice peppery oak.
