    This whisky did not met the reserve price in the recent ended auction on whiskyauctioneer. Highest bid was 460 gbp.

    I don’t remember who passed me this, but it could well have been tOMoH & co.

    N: With a healthy freshness, I picked up nutty cereal notes, a hint of chestnut, rye without spice, garam masala, cumin, felt, hessian,…. the shopping list just flowed.

    T: With the oak initially dominant, it opens with a terrific snap, crackle & pop. Whilst slightly lacking the clarity & flow of the nose, oaky juice follows. After a few minutes there’s way more fruity honey as the cask dies down. No way I’d have guessed 45yo, more 18.

    F: Oaky malty< mineral-y.

    C: An oldie that is super fresh and youthful, and though it’s also consolidated, hi-fidelity separation is also discernible. With thanks to,….?

    Scores a B+
