  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The dram displayed complex depth redolent of old cigar boxes and coffee grains. The strong presence of oak led us along a woodland path amidst dried mushrooms and pine cones on the forest floor. Sweet impressions of heather honey, pears and assorted biscuits mixed with tree bark whilst all spice rustled through the undergrowth. Chilli jam tickled the tongue as nutmeg and cloves enveloped dried apricots and marmalade. The soft fruitiness of raspberries in trifle fused with pineapple to bring a juicy array to the table that worked in harmony with an exceedingly dry finish that combined dried shisha tobacco with strong black tea.
