  1. ivanjc scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    Not bad on the nose, unexpectedly lovely on the tongue. Refreshing lemon soda water, fruity and crispy, delightful juicy peach aroma. Although the alcohol has been noticed underneath, and a little bit harsh at the end, it’s stunning good overall.

    Considering the young age and 2nd fill bourbon barrel, it is easy to be overlooked, but once you tried, you will know she is the Cinderella. The price is such a bargain, just chong tmd!

  2. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: The Panel were delighted by the expressive and charismatic aroma on this unusual make. It opened with honey sponge cake, olive oil, crushed polo mints and rice crackers. Then creamy dauphinoise potatoes, salty porridge, caramelised oatmeal, waxed canvas and mineral oils. Reduction brought earthier tones such as cornflour and turmeric, then canvas, ink, scrunched newspapers and trampled ferns gone soggy with rainwater. The palate was surprisingly bursting with white jelly fruits, pineapple cubes, sweet perry, green melon and yellow plums. Some exotic fruit teas and juicy bubble-gum. With water it swung back to dryness with clay, vase water, crushed aspirin and mirabelle eau de vie. Fresh linens and vanilla custard in the aftertaste.
