  2. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 68 points Expert Junior

    Young malt and old burnt oak barrel?
    • Nose
      Watery, sugar water, light lemonade, pencil shave, some citrus zest, saltiness.
    • Taste
      Same as the nose but with more oak bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short with oak bitterness.

  3. Shane_IL scored this whisky 65 points Expert Senior

    This one really didn’t work for me. It felt unbalanced with an overpowering presence of ethanol drowning out the more subtle notes. Essentially just rough whisky.

    • Nose
      Salty toffee. Grit. Slightly earthy. Wood tannins. Faint tropical fruit notes.
    • Taste
      Quite aggressive. Bitter wood. Woody vanilla. Some more tropical fruit, but the alcohol overpowers the nicer notes.
    • Finish
      Short. Bitter wood and bitter fruit.
