  1. jayaresea scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Initial tasting was SbS with Ancnoc 12 and this seemed much rougher and spirited and spicy. Not in a bad way! But the Ancnoc seemed much more round, mellow, and smooth.
    12/7/20 - Honeyed + boozy cheerios on the nose. Creamy, custardy. Bourbony caramel notes on the nose followed by more of the same in the initial flavor and taste. Initial swallow reminds me of something......burnt? Overcooked? Not super but leads into a nice caramel and chocolate covered grapefruit. Not something I eat regularly, just meaning those chocolatey bourbon notes followed by the nice bitter sour citrus in the very end.
    Would I prefer this over an cnoc 12? Maybe slightly. They're related and would live nicely together in a pantry, but if I had to choose ONE I'd go this one for what seems like generally a bit more complexity in its harshness. 2 pts tho for an extra $20-25?
