  1. Islaysmoke scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Exceptional drop! needs some time I wouldn't add any more water, the water made it sharper and pushed out the sweetness a bit.
    • Nose
      Light fruit and honey. Pear. Tropical fruits (pineapple, papaya, passion fruit, grapefruit). Mild acidity.
    • Taste
      Brilliant start with tropical fruits, melon and ripe apricots, honey sweetness, very full on the tongue, spiciness of white pepper and then dry spiciness.
    • Finish
      Spicy-sweet to mineral, floral and the tannins of the oak without becoming bitter.

    Needs time, great then, apricots, white pepper rub on game. With water it explodes.

    For me, more familiar to this whisky is a barrel - a barrel of Bourbon. Uncharacteristic because Oloroso. Dust, pollen, sweet tones, dried plums and apricots, dried apples with a peel. However, this is a great whisky.
