  1. JasonWhiskyWise scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    An exceptional nose, waxy and minerally, apple drops but almost baked orchard fruits, pears, apples, clementine's and peaches followed by cardboard, chives and sour cream. Actually the nose moves into more a creamy character. The way to describe the palate is the wax coats the palate but for something so waxy its also very light, a very interesting combination in the texture and flavour. Flavour profile on the palate is Fresh juicy red apples with a minerally character accompanying it. Yellow Hay coated in a aromatic honey all rounded by a light tropical fruity note, for me its tinned jackfruit, just Wow!

    Tasted at The Whisky Exchange Old & Rare Show 2021; Waxy Masterclass. (Dram No.5 of 6)
