  1. DrunkDude scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A very bad dram.
    • Nose
      78 78
      The prickly heat powder, vegetables, a little bit of honey, citrus, gasoline, and low-molecular-weight aldehydes after the bath are too strong and have not been aged enough. 78
    • Taste
      79 79
      Coconut sugar, gasoline dried kiwi, black pepper, white sugar, time is not enough. 79
    • Finish
      79 79
      Woody tannins, a little bitter orange. 79

    SMWS notes:

    Delicate notes of spring flowers paved the way with spearmint freshness towards sticky candyfloss and Danish pastries with custard. From there a sweet and savoury duality commenced as salted popcorn and roast chicken on a sandy beach jostled with pancakes with lemon and strawberries. Subtle spices brought rye bread with pink peppercorns and sugar-coated fennel seeds whilst delightfully oily textures layered brazil nuts with asparagus fried in butter. Water brought forward more salty and citrusy notes followed by poppy seed coated bread. Then back came the sweetness as white chocolate fused with Black Forest gateau. Finally, we found thin slices of parma ham wrapped around cereal bars and a touch of liquorice stick to finish.
