    Quick review from one small dram.

      Sweet and spicy in a long slow fading finish.

    This is a weird one, with all the cannabis notes. Sometimes I get that note and it is just my tongue settling in with the oak. But nope, this doesn’t go away. It is like drinking an “edible” at times. Quite a wild whisky, because the oak and honey and blueberries and malt are all standard issue delicious. I really like this, though. Really nice.
    • Nose
      Malty vanilla. Oatmeal with blueberries. Really nice blueberries, really. Surprisingly rich and vibrant. I want to list more berries, but really it is all blueberries. Lemon. Pie crust.
    • Taste
      Honey, oat, malt, and vanilla. A little dankness and oak. Blueberry cannabis edibles. Some raspberries actually too. Really juicy, actually. The honey is practically being dripped onto my tongue. Thick mouthfeel, a nice texture to it.
    • Finish
      Oak, hot honey (with chili peppers, not warm), oak, cannabis, oak, a little honey and vanilla, and cannabis. Long finish. Very dry.

    Nice nose, taste, but above average. Spicy, but balanced single malt.

    The nose has a sharp citric element to it - tangerines. Malt is present too. The taste is pretty hot but light. Oily mouth feel and just a touch of sweetness on the finish.
