  1. DrunkDude scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Nose: In the cup, it is brand new leather, with obvious oiliness, blue cheese, slightly smoked? A lot of dust. After 16 minutes, the creamy texture of raw mango, green apple, slightly oily asparagus. After 48 minutes of waking up, a large amount of raw mango, green apple peel, cheese, cheese, with a little orange peel, and a little salted fish with vinasse appeared in the cup. Smell the flavor profile based on the base, not very divergent. Add a little water, a lot of salty pork, blue cheese, ripe mango, olive brine. There are more funk elements in style than modern kittens, messy but harmonious. 91

    Palate: The entrance is a lot of fat, light smoke, sweet red apple jam, sweet and sour orange water, butter, tobacco, roasted nuts, excellent sour and sweet balance, excellent strength, and full body thickness. It has a strong oiliness, rich layers, and a very ideal body. If it is hard to pick, it just lacks the flavor of tropical fruits and a slightly monotonous flavor. But who cares, a fruity and clean whisky , And balance, yes, the right balance has brought him a lot of points. Add water to lower the degree to around 45 degrees. It is still a perfect fruity balance, with more roasted nuts and raw mango styles, and it is still clean, balanced, and strong. A difference of thought, this wine can be 87 points or 94 points, here I give 94 points. 94

    Finish: Leave the white veins of grapefruit peel, woody tannins, a little mint, licorice, light ash and sweet orange water, ginger candy. Slimy mouth feel, long lasting. This is the end of one hour and twelve minutes of drinking. 93
