    Lucky enough to not fork out £1000 for a dram. Was given a wee few ml to sample after a lengthy chat with the bored bartender.

    In all honestly, if you really want to spend this much, keep your money and buy a used oak stave. You'd be better off sucking it directly.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Damp wood with a moody and rustic feel, soaked oak paired with undried clothes. Old shed in the middle of a jungle filled with hay, wood chips, stagnant water puddle, moss and old leather.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Extremely dried red muscat wine. Think dark fruits, aged and seasoned. Raisins, plums, aged cheese, overly ripen grapefruit. The damp oak hits hard here, far too much ok infused ok. The sign that the liquid has been too long inside the cask, that price certainly doesn't influence its age on this note. Perhaps the rarity of only 3 bottles in existence risen the value.

      No development, maintaining a dry, heavy oak palate. Some elements of floral-ness still exists, reminiscent of Scandinavian Dill and rosemary.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Very long finishing, still very dry too. Pitted prunes, oak and plum wine to finish.
