  1. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is a very beautiful, powerful, complex and layered whisky. It really needs quite some time in your glass to really open up and release the more delicate fruity flavours. In the beginning they are a bit overpowered by the darker and more bitter tones in this whisky. A wee drop of water brings our some sweetness but also a bit more bitterness on the palate so be careful there.
    A lovely whisky with a complex character.
