  1. UisgePunk scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is a summary of many notes over the past 8 yrs:
    When I first opened this bottle the power was frightening, sharp as any sword in Kill Bill, chemical attack of alcohols and solvents, no matter how much water I added I couldn't tame it. A glass left overnight with a piece of paper over the top...now that allowed it to mellow and waxes and hints of green apples, limes, unripe kiwi appear....then it sat on the shelf waiting a sip here and there. Remaining potent and still full of massive 1990's Cadenhead sharp power....but sometime around the point when the bottle was at the 2/3rd's full level, either I changed or the liquid did...more wax notes, less solvent...less green fruit and emerging hints of ripe oranges, more wax, candles and honey, oysters baked in grease, still sharp in the finish, limes, lemons, razor blades coated with lemons - and sweet wax.
