  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 99 points Connoisseur

    I am happy to have found a whisky that deserves the spot of 99 points, leaving just 100 points shy of a spot for something else in the future. Could it be a Talisker or who knows what? :).

    No 100 score can be given to any part of the tasting process, as it is reserved for something more phenomenal. Best £300 spent on a dram.
    • Nose
      98 98
      Deep dark blueberry, cranberries, palm sugar syrup, strawberry pudding, and creme brulee. Lemon lime San Pellegrino water, aged honey matured in an XO bottle with XO, ripen mangoes, leather, and condensed beef stock.
    • Taste
      99 99
      Ripen plums, pitted prunes, manuka honey, hazelnuts, camphor, cinnamon, tarragon, Chinese rice wine husks, cooked Bario rice - this is slightly sweet, nutty, vegetative, and has a deep aftertaste of jammy egg custard (only the best Bario rice money can buy, at around 40 USD per 100 grams.

      Lightly smoked, poached pear, with brown sugar and olive oil reduction, slightly seafood-like where lobster roe and seaweed come together.
    • Finish
      99 99
      Absolutely delicious, long-lasting, and constantly developing in flavors. Sweet orange marmalade, with dark chocolate, orange peel, candied ginger, and plenty of spice notes that I cannot fathom.
