  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Perfume, apples, flowers, citrus, cake, old leather notes on nose.

    Apples, spices, licorice, cake and oak notes on taste.

    The middle finish starts with spices, and goes with vanilla, apples, oak notes.

    For years I've been trying to get folk to notice this stuff. It's not going to startle you in a festival amongst all those big hitters (although I've always thought it was good), but sit down with a bottle of this and you won't regret it. This was the last dregs of the bottle and another one will have to come soon. I hope the current batch is as good.
    • Nose
      Honey and lemon cough sweets, star anise, light and refreshing. Grassy with lemon refreshers. There's some dried oak there. Like a carpenter's workshop in the summer, with a pile of malted barley in the corner. Clean as a whistle and quite charming.
    • Taste
      Zingy lemon refreshers, surrounded by a multitude of tiny popping spice bombs. The honey is there on the palate too, but it's finely spread and delicate. Sugar sparkles in the background amongst more light oak. 
    • Finish
      Seems like it dies quite quickly, but then it begins to wash your palate with brown sugar, cinammon and chewed pencil. The more you drink the woodier the finish gets, but it remains delicate.
