  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    So many good moments here. It isn't complex and seems to have come from a well used cask, but it's fun.
    • Nose
      A lovely clean gently peated dram with gentle carbolic and lint, Werther's Originals and vanilla. Some youthful notes, but there's nothing about this I don't like. Water releases the malt so that it smells like a tank full of new make.
    • Taste
      A bit simpler here with more of those youthful notes suggesting a well used cask. Still very enjoyable with dilute barley sugar and a touch of coal smoke.  Becomes very sugary with water.
    • Finish
      Gentle, lingering sugary fizz. Water just makes it sweeter.
