    N- Mellow and calm with fruits of peach, apple, molasses and rum-ish in certain aspects Eucalyptus, sweet pepper and toasted in the middle, underlay with nutty, fruity beer with old wood of cardboard and ginger. (86/20)

    P- Pleasingly earthy sweet mouthfeel, fresh fruits with savoury tinge, cola and hint of book linger around the nose. (86/20)

    F- Medium, grainy and mineral, eucalyptus, pear drops candy and minty. Simple, direct and clean. (86/20)

    B/B- 87/21 More than decent mellow mouthfeel.

    WW:- Cereal: 2 / Fruity: 3 / Floral: 1 / Peaty: 1 / Feinty: 0 / Sulphury: 0 / Woody: 4 / Winery: 1

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Bitty and gritty, like cheap gravy granules that haven’t dissolved. Cinnamon dust, dusty old tea leaves, wrought iron and despite the caramel the rough spirit can’t be disguised. This is so bad im not sure i even want to drink it.
    T: Random fortified alcohol, hints bad cooking sherry, hints of bad wine, some chocolate. Those gravy granules are horrible
    F: Gin and Cinzano led dime bar with a metallic finish
    C: The three sips i tasted went in the spittoon, the rest down the sink. The only good thing about this os the ceramic flagon.
