  1. davidloosli scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Surprisingly fresh, fruity, bakery, menthol, Vicks Blue, behind that sweet smoke, a dash saltwater;
      with water: Ashier, lemon, fresher
    • Taste
      Strong, but not much burn, now the peat shows himself, but still surprisingly little smoke, bitter walnut, some tabasco, gets fruitier / lemonier;
      with water: orange, earthy, Laga style
    • Finish
      In the finish the smoke shows up, cold grime, rather dry, ABV very well integrated, almond slivers;
      with water: bitter jam (orange), furry

    Whiskyfun Review:
    This baby from Big Jim McEwan's Private Stock - 2nd Release. No wine in sight this time, this is what we'd call a clear lap in motor racing. Beep, beep, beep… Go! Colour: white wine. Nose: much narrower, and yet more elegant, tight, mineral, lemony, creosote-y, chalky… I find this awesome. A lot of ashes, ashtray, also green olives, capers, samphires… That's all stuff that's ticking the proper boxes. Gazpacho. With water: perfect tight acidic smoke, soot, whiffs of new plywood (at Ikea), which I enjoy, more olives, new electronics, new MacBook (you know, 'It didn't work because something went wrong', etcetera…) Mouth (neat): simple, on ashes, lemons and green peppers. The thing is, this works a treat. More smoky gazpacho and some green walnuts. With water: excellent. Creamy mouthfeel, citrus, barley, smoke, ashes, bananas, limoncello… Finish: long, clean, fat, a tad more resinous. Comments: the best, al natural, without any butchered wines. Great young smoky tipple, well selected Jim, and a rather paroxysmic, yet civilised smoke this time. Nah, it's just super-good.
    SGP:468 - 90 points.
