  1. WhiskeryTurnip scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    This was an absolutely stellar example of the sort of complexity and depth that can be found in younger casks. One barely notices that this malt is only a day shy of six years in the cask for the quality of its flavor profile and the ease with which it drinks.
    • Nose
      Walking into a barnyard— animals, decaying vegetation, and manure. Grassy clovers and burning cow paddies take us out into the fields. It is the faintly sweet smell of rotting vegetation and the earthiness of dung.
    • Taste
      As if someone bottled and distilled the air at an animal show. Sweaty horse, sweet dry grass, and manure come tumbling out. Smoke off hot coals along with sweeter florals of lilies, wildflowers, and clover honey. The decay off the nose makes itself present on the palate as a lovely, almost salty, pond scum.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering, the oily body leaves behind rotting vegetation and chocolate cake.

    I think the first cut is delicious. The issue price was fantastic from today's perspective. The current prices have unfortunately become too violent :-(
