  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 60 points Connoisseur

    Well, what can you say. Relatively flat for his age and somehow cabbage. Very idiosyncratic.

    • Nose
      Acid. Alcohol. Then orange and grapefruit. Little detergent
    • Taste
      Starts a bit sour but slowly releases some sweetness. Citrus honey and vanilla.

  8. hsmithjr scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Way too sour for my taste.  Margarita anyone?
    • Nose
      Limes.  Ripe oranges.  Tequilla?  Floor polish.  Sweet and sour sauce.
    • Taste
      Sour citrus.  Salty.  Some oak.  More sour notes.  Rather light.
    • Finish
      Limes, again.   Oak.  Salt water.
