  1. FernetBranco scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Notes der SMWS:

    "A surprisingly fragrant and enticing nose full of mineral salts and bluster. Lemons and limes, herbal ointments, a distant burning hospital, medical embrocations, jasmine tea, gorse flowers, pea soup and ham hock with a dollop of piccalilli. There's even touches of wildflowers such as daisies and carnations in the distance. Water brings out clover, nutmeg, chamois leather, tarragon, crispy fish skin, browned butter and a big dollop of salty sourdough. A constant wisp of woodsmoke in the background. In the mouth it's pure petrol. Cask strength, bone dry young riesling with herbal butter, fresh sage, truffle salt, elastoplasts, mechanical oils, high ester rum, banana chips and anchovy paste. With reduction comes an elevated oiliness to the texture. Olive oil mixed with brine, salted liquorice, sandalwood and hot coals. A kiss of fruity chilli at the end."
