    2nd Tried:- March 2016

    N- Spirity and heated. Winery and musky with dust of floral and paper. Raisin and vanilla.

    P- Vanilla, ginger, leather and dry mouthfeel.

    F- Short - medium length, rough bites and bitterness remains. Pickled ginger. Under-age and lost focus. — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.


    First Tried:- June 2015 / Weighted Rate:- 63pt

    Nose:- Mineral and oily note, drizzle with sweet smoke. Lightest and bland.

    Palate:- Hmmm. Out of word.... Raw and flat. Shades of seasoned leather, musky.

    Finish:- Empty and simplistic. Bites, and whiff of bitter.

    Glad this expression has been omitted from their current range.

    Good value for money
    • Nose
      Very light and fruity. Tropical fruit salad with malty sweetness - balanced and beautiful.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly strong, sour - sweet with malt, fruits, oak and pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is of good length, sweet and dry with oak flavors.
