    Serge is right ‘,… the numbers don’t quite add-up‘. He later clarifies ‘this was actually bottled in 2019 and released in 2020‘ [WF88].

    N: A sweet one that’s reminiscent of Elements of Islay’s CL6 [WB], though not quite as sugary.
    T: Really good on the palate,… salty, vegetal, and punchy.
    F: The power brings reverberations.
    C: A good one to finish on.

    A remarkably pale dram - unusual in that it is mellow in the moth, but the taste explodes once you swallow. The distillery DNA is present - really pleasant dram.

      BBQ spare ribs, maple syrup, an inviting nose.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In spite of the strength it is a lovely mellow dram - a hint of Earl Grey, with the taste becoming most notable after you've swallowed.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Soft in the mouth, but the taste really hits as it goes down - tongue tingling finish.
