    Petrol notes on the nose and in the taste. Not the first time I encounterd this in an inchgower from the early 80's.

    An unusual and pleasant whisky: 88
    • Nose
      Woody nose with pastry smells. A slight hint of vanilla.
    • Taste
      Sweet palate on malt and rye, nuts, coffee, chocolate, pastry. This whisky makes me think of a bourbon or even a rye whisky because it really has the taste of rye.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet finish on coffee and chocolate. Still the taste of rye whisky or bourbon.

    Special to say the least. 89/90.
    • Nose
      The nose is unlike any other whisky I know. Upfront a waxy note which is hard to describe, but I guess Play-Doh clay comes pretty close. But it's also fruity: Apricot, lychee, orange and citrus. And some oak and caramel.
    • Taste
      Waxy, but not in such an odd sense as in the nose. Apricot, orange, lychee, papaya, vanilla and a pleasant fruity bitterness such as grapefruit. In the long run somewhat nutty.
    • Finish
      Wax, lemon, almond, pecan and a little caramel.
