  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tried this side by side with the Yoichi sherry finish 2018. This 12 yo is so much better. Fresher and more expressive with water. Not complex per se, but it is enjoyable.

  2. dram_on scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Just opened so perhaps it needs to breathe a bit, am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt

    Edit: it's been 8 months since I opened my bottle, and it really has opened up, bumping my score from an 84 to an 86 ...

    This is a distillery only bottling that have an age statement (the recent ones don't). These were available in 500ml and 180ml bottles, and all were at 55%. Code 20B08C from a 180ml bottle purchased by me at the distillery.
