  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 91 points Photo Moderator

    I agree with some of the reviews that there is some special austere bitterness on the nose, much less on the palate - overall pretty drinkable
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense, honey, pineapple, little lavender, hints of varnish, some herbs, vanilla, woody notes, burnt toast bread, orange zest - quite interesting
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, fruity, more tropical fruits and some apricot, honey, spices, herbs, vanilla, little ginger, pepper, mango, little woody - very good
    • Finish
      91 91
      Medium long, warm, fruity sweet but also woody and herbal

    Transferring previous Note (2012.01.09) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      mandarines, quite a bit of woody bitterness but
      enough sweet malt to balance it out, drifting into beeswax & some
      faint vanilla-honey
