  1. Official tasting note

    The smokiness builds through this entire dram, with the finish giving notes of burnt and smouldering pine forrest. A smooth and syrupy dram with hints of vanilla.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, heather, fishing net, burning tree branches
    • Taste
      Honey roasted cashews, vanilla essence, syrupy, subtle peat notes
    • Finish
      Burnt orange, heather honey, smouldering pine forest

  2. just 2thetop scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Yes this is a unique experience in smell and taste
    Spirit forward - little noticable cask influence considering but has benefited from its 12+ years resting.
    The nose is not so aromatic - muted - citric earthy herbal
    On the palate - developing sharp sweet sour; clean well defined mineral and smoked burnt wet wood, heather and moss but not friendly like HP.
    Long long finish - smoke dry sour notes lingering long time.
    Not for everyone I 'd guess but an interesting one unlike any other I've tasted - total absence of usual sweet barley or fruity notes.

    Not my style. Fat dram. Raw pork meat. But it is interesting because is different.
