    N: Fortunately, Ben – SWAG’s US whiskey expert – is here to steer us in the right direction. ‘Very wheated’, he tells us. Indeed, I find it soft, a touch waxy and > fluffy with a perfumed detergenty hint. Bananas too. It reminds me of the first North of Scotland [grain] whiskey I ever tried, a 1973 vintage from BBR and also wheated. I must dig a sample out one day and re-review it for these pages.

    T: Green banana for sure. Surprisingly astringent given the softer fluffy wheated nose.

    F: It softens a touch by the end and stretches out down a lovely grainy-barley route.

    C: An absolute must-try for those convinced that standard JD is the best whiskey in the world.

    I’ve had this fairly recently and enjoyed it [WLP82]. This generous sample was gifted to me by SWAG member Will.

    N: An instant pleasure straight off, this is richer/from a fresher bottle than the one I tried in September. The nose is oily-grain/biscuity detergent-fresh with additional notes of leather, tobacco, and banana foam candy.

    T: A little water helps this one float. The green banana note [from before] is still utterly relevant, though less fluffy than the previous more oxidised/opened bottle.

    F: Think [white] ?bread? – couldn’t read my own writing – and peanut shells with a very light resinous dryness thereafter, followed by a touch of soft-astringent-fresh sweet-sour washing powder – in a good way.

    C: As I said before, ‘an absolute must-try for those convinced that standard JD is the best whiskey in the world’. Despite the small-batch and abv presentation, however, it’s still a tad lacking. Scores [an excellent] 81 points [the oxidised bottle marginally more favourable on the day].
