  2. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    I would have guessed this was some Longrow red, the finish is rather springbankian. Thanks to ST for the sample, good stuff but I don't agree with the 90+ scores, it is more mid 80s for me, or 6-7/10
    • Nose
      water needed. stewed red fruit, a bit creamy, sichuan pepper, coal smoke, umami stir fry cabbage with soy sauce and five spice. remains a little nippy, but caramel joins with further reduction.
    • Taste
      big punch of flavour - nice hit of mixed berry jam, fruity chillis, slight fruit pith, slight sulphur. finish is the best part, goes on long with some nice hazelnuts and coal smoke.
