  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Delicious oak juice. The brand has nothing to say except in the nose, but the oak is just great.
    I like his extreme nature very well.
    • Nose
      Heavy sweet oak tones on the nose. The light sweet wheat plays with the massive oak cargo that the desert ripening in Texas brings with it. With mint, menthol and everything that goes with it. Very minimalistic but on point.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the 57% pop a decent kick without looking sharp. Lots of oak, tart, resin, also some glue, with chamomile, mint, black pepper, class stuff.
    • Finish
      The finish is dominated by wood, resinous, spicy, slightly tart with mint. A subtle acidity and just a hint of sweetness, just so as not to let the oak bitterness drift too extreme.

    "Interesting" aka a heavy experiment and definitely a broadening of horizons. You have to like the massive oak load (apparently toasted staves come into the charred barrels).
    • Nose
      84 84
      Cedar and oak in abundance. Including a very "volatile" body. KiBa and orange juice? Very fine, light blossom honey. Sauna infusion. Some turmeric. Later charcoal and wood ash. Clove.
    • Taste
      81 81
      GDR cough syrup ("beech tar"). OAK! Funny, somehow he has no body, looks "flat". Pretty biting. Paint color. As sweet as paper, not in general, but in places it seems artificial.
    • Finish
      80 80
      He pulls and stabs, absolutely blatant. I am very challenged. Strongly tannic black tea.
