  1. Petitcham scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Incense: The distillery's unique character and the flavor of fresh fruit, flowers and nuts are very rich and harmonious

    Taste: Behind a very oily and rich body, a refreshing acid sticks to tongue, saltiness, nuts are rampant in back

    What a treat. Subtle tropicalness from nose to palate. What a nose. The medicinal, peaty/tarry, coastal and tropical notes. Perfectly mixed. And a well-balanced palate. Yes I loved it.
    • Nose

      Medicinal notes (camphor, iodine), old leather and diesel oil at first. A bit compact. After a few minutes of aeration, lightly smoky, tarry ropes, coastal (seaweeds, seashells) and tropical notes (passion fruits, peaches, pineapples, lemons). More camphor, hints of pepper and still the subtle mixed tropicalness.

      Slightly creamy. The tropicalness remains. Smoke, a few ashes, camphor and lemons, mineral notes with hints of chalk.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, lingering fruits, salt and herbal notes.

  3. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Always superb. Each glass is a pleasure. The ideal daily deal.
    • Nose
      Resolutely sexy nose.
      A nice hint of passion fruit. Vanilla, cloves, white grapes, lilac, elderflower. Potpourri, pear, pepper.
      Light and integrated peat, camphor.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is powerful, integrated, but a little watery. Cold ash, lemon, pear, camphor, smoke.
      It is complex and comprehensive.
    • Finish
      Superb finish on cold ash, lemon, camphor, medicinal. Candied orange.

    You will be surprise just how flavorful this 43% malt is. They said the quality of whisky is not better in the old days, I beg to differ after tasting this malt.
    Thanks to whiskyCon
