  1. the_muskox scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Complex and interesting, but it didn’t always jive with me for whatever reason. Maybe I’d like it to have been sweeter? Maybe the tartness and herbs could be taken down a notch? Maybe on a different day I would have loved it? I don’t know. Certainly not a bad glass of whisky, but apparently not my bag (baby).

    Nose: Fresh, off-sweet and spirity. Strong barley sugar, poached pears, nectarine, and honeydew. A tingle of white pepper. Woody honey and vanilla. With time, white chocolate fudge started to come forward, as well as a flowery wood-sap note. There’s a slight tartness, like a sour pineapple.
    Water brought out dusty mineral notes of limestone and calcite, as well as more melon and some lime. A hint of puff-pastry came out after a little longer.

    Palate: It’s pretty hot neat. Underripe apple, dusty minerals, and a touch of peat. Let’s try some water.
    Much better. Opens with melon and barley sugar, developing into black pepper, mild peat and some tangy rice vinegar. More herbal notes next: mint, thyme, angostura, and juniper.

    Finish: Medium-length. Starts fresh with white tea and lime, but gets darker and woodier with time. Some black licorice, rubber, and cowhide. Wood sap deepens into pine resin. Some nutmeg and caraway spice.
