[Quick festival note] Wow, ok, I mean "vive la différence" but I can't quite get how this is getting such a high average WB score (more than 86 at time of writing). Is this what people like in whisky nowadays ? To me this really is "modern woody sherry done bad" 101. It's arguably flawed on some levels and, moreover, it's incredibly replacable by just any other young malt that you'd put in such a pressure cooker. Take the Tomatin 17007 for example : it's a bit better but not much and it's just boringly similar. I don't understand the logic behind bottling such malts as single casks ...
Cheap caramel, vegetal notes, bland wood already ... archetypal bland young modern sherry.
Very woody, astringent even, unbalanced on some dirty potato aromas, earthy and moldy wood. Pass.
Not saving anything.
