- It's nice and sweet (some red fruit?), and the IPA taste (hops and citrus) comes through really well, without becoming overly bitter or sour. Great if you're a fan of beer. But me, it misses some depth.
- Not a bad whisky, the finish is just a bit too bitter for my taste.
- Damn hopping mad for sure! Plus citrus and oak. I really like it. Not extremely balanced or extraordinary at all but quite nice. Good one and not usual at all.
- A startling nose full of tropical fruits and a vivid, almost powerful hoppiness. All on lemony cereals, barley wine, smouldering heather, vanilla essence, hay, dry earth and a pint of foaming IPA straight from cask. With water we get wildflowers, golden syrup, honeycomb, lemon cough drops, yet more hops, cannabis resin and herb liqueurs. The arrival in the mouth is like a freeze-distilled IPA. Masses of gorse flower, crushed ferns, assorted greenery, subtle waxiness, dry earth, crisp cereals (more beer!). Mental was heard to be muttered around the table - possibly more than once... With reduction it displayed many wild herbs, lemon peel, honeyed toast, trodden bracken, sweet malt extract and a few fragrant soaps. Bonkers but brilliant! Matured for 15 years in a first-fill barrel before transfer to a first-fill, ex-IPA barrel.
