    Coming to the UK courtesy of Mangrove. A pleasant dram, but I'd like to see a properly matured cask or two (ex bourbon or sherry) to get an idea of the DNA of the distillery. The cask finish hides the spirit.
    • Nose
      81 81
      The grape notes come through - almost like a decent wine vinegar.
    • Taste
      81 81
      There is a slightly confusing taste with some notes of raisins and spice, but wine notes again. The higher abv makes it less watery than its current counterpart, but it's a bit of a melange.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium length - slightly reminiscent of a dessert wine.

    Struggled with this. Usually enjoy whiskies with muscat casks but this didn't work for me. Sweetness on the nose but the palette and finish felt quite acidic. Really wanted to like it and it did improve with time in the glass.

      Short. Cloves and nutmeg remain.

    On the nose, a whiff of sourish aniseed. Fresh, sweet and winey.

    Not bad, overnight open bottle time and it gets rid of almost all the aniseed-like notes that I associate with (and dislike about) young Australian whisky.

    Straightforward and simplistic, clean, light bodied, lacks weight and depth but quite flavourful.

    Lingering sweet finish.

    Very quaffable.
