  2. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Hard whisky, there is a potential in it, but without water it doesn't really a round whole.
    • Nose
      A bit alcoholic. Exotic fruits, citrus, herbs and chewing gum.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Spicy oak, citruses, sweet fruits, peat and punch. Touch of mint.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy with citruses.

  3. Igor scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Beware high strength. And I mean it.

    Water will soften the palate, so, apparently, adding some water is advisable here.
    • Nose
      Edgy. Alcohol rush tickles the nostrils at the top, although it smells refreshing, fairly crisp and fruity. Full of tropical fruit like citron, pineapple/candied pineapple rings, litchi?, (under-ripe) pear, green banana... Sapwood, hay.

      It only gains from spending more time nosing it, while becoming mellower, fruitier, and sweetening progressively.
    • Taste
      Robust, with structured body - not quite oily, but smooth - never mind its alcoholic potency. Mixed spice enhances spicy heat in the mouth, acrid, limoncello?, almonds, brittle candy, maybe a touch of lemon curd there with vanilla fudge. Allspice, nutmeg, cardamom and peppermint, sap.

      Palate-wise it has a weird, almost a wavelike, puckering sensation, which is odd really...
    • Finish
      Vegetable bitterness, herb tea, astringent, lemon rind, mint. Lengthy citric fizz.
