  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Upgraded to 92. Very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Quaker Oats, barley water, Chinese rice wine, old wood, butter, honey, fudge, Kellogg's Frosties.

      Develops into, roses, samphire, sage and tea tree oil.

      Salted butter from Normandy, pine tree nuts, grilled sea bream.
    • Taste
      95 95
      Set the scene, a paddy field and barley field ready for harvest.

      Bright sun above with clouds covering half, sweet corn drenched with maple syrup.

      On the side, freshly squeezed pineapple juice, lemongrass, mint leaves, lime juice and kaffir lime leaf.
      That tinge of alfalfa is really obvious, a dried out bunch of leaves set in a damp yet sunny environment.

      At the ending, that sweet yet bitter note of jasmine flower, jasmine dragon tea. A mix of jasmine and Chinese Bi Luo Chun green tea. Green yet not astringent.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Dry with medium finish.

      Oily full of butter. Lots of mint leaves, a rather subtle note on the back with cooling like feel of mentholated vicks.

      An expression of dawn, the sun is rising, bread rolls paired with butter. A bowl of cereal filled with bananas, peaches and asiatic papaya. Certainly a weird combination, though with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil?
