    Liquid dessert in a glass. Liqueur-like, luscious and lovely, as befits its name. Also a nice dram to win over folks who usually aren't that much into whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A bit bourbon-like with a soft glue note and a massive dose of vanillin. Super soft , sweet, and creamy. Coconut sweets, custard and brown sugar. There's definitely older stuff in here as well, but its presence is not announced by any vulgar wood notes. Really rounded and polished, like a perfectly smooth pebble at the beach.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet again, with white chocolate, mint, guava and pineapple. Some soft pepper in the back. Given the strength, outstanding viscosity and silky texture.
    • Finish

      Alas, the weak spot, as was to be expected. There's nothing bad here, but neither is there anything positive that stands out. The grain leaves a certain unmistakable hollowness that lingers in the throat.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Very nice, straight-forward grain with the typical notes, no more and no less.
    • Nose
      As expected with Grain very, very sweet, lots of honey, nougat, some hazelnut and peanut, buttered, vanilla, some cocooned oak chips, white pepper
    • Taste
      Coconut, Sezchuan pepper, thyme, crispy caramel pieces, freshly marshmallows, some ginger
    • Finish
      Coconut, toasted bread, a little rye, pepper, medium-long

    Time to move on now that I've tried a grain-based whisky. The bottle did marginally improve as it oxidized with the biggest improvement coming in when the fill level was at about 1/4-1/3 left ...
