  2. UnmarkedDoor scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Interesting. On first tasting, the astringency was too present and the leather took over, leaving my mouth dry. It got much better on subsequent and larger sips, exposing the buttery baked cereal which provide and adequate and satisfying counterpoint.
    • Nose
      Really sweet citrus, like lemon after one of those magic berries. Sherbert. Pineapple. Heather and pine. Pepto Bismol.
    • Taste
      Honeycomb, crunchy-nut cornflakes, lemoncello cut by Astringent tea tree, leather and tobacco. This transitions into the spice, which is peppery at first, but subsides fairly quickly to a background hum. Pretty syrupy despite the astringent tones.
    • Finish
      The more you drink, the less Astringent it tastes and the more mellow sweet the tail is, which gets buttery and cakey, with less leather although the tobacco remains and softens to a rounded cocoa.

  3. DulischM scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    A summery whisky that can be enjoyed with a few ice cubes.
    • Nose
      Aromas of lime and exotic citrus fruits reach the nose, mango, pineapple, green apple and grapes. Sweet cake with cream comes up, vanilla and honey, plus a subtle floral meadow.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and citrus-heavy in the mouth at the beginning, ginger appears and the whisky has a slightly grassy note. Lots of fresh oak brings the appropriate seasoning and a little pepper.
    • Finish
      In the finish again citrus with a little honey, plus oak spice.
