    • Nose
      88 88
      It took a while to figure out what it was, and it was tough to do without consider what it was like relative to the changes in the nose. It went from grilled seafood to beachy tar to light smoked fruit. Really interesting.
    • Taste

      Light fruit. Peppery malt. Spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Light smoke and malt after a peppery start. Long.

  2. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: With this one we were all over the place. We started in Beijing with Peking duck marinated and seasoned in five spice and Sichuan pepper, served alongside a smoky, sweet and sour sauce before we went to Buenos Aires and enjoyed steak accompanied by Chimichurri sauce (parsley, oregano garlic, olive oil, and vinegar and smoked chipotle flakes). Sensationally sensual, just like a real Argentine tango - totally improvisational! With water put on your dancing shoes and let yourself go, dancing in the street - hot tarmac, plenty of cars, gasoline in the air, blood sweat and tears – truly a celebration of life!
