  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      83 83
      A lively bunch of peppers and chillies dancing admist a smoky surrounding. Very spicy and peppery start that jutters up the nostrils. Smoke follows through, then dissipates into a ash like scent. I'm getting some raw flame from the gas, that gas smell from a petrol pump.

      Chili, garlic and onion barbeque meat platter.
    • Finish

      Medium to short end. Taste the scent of bunt plastic and rubber tyres.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Smoky, sherried, rich and peppery. Green chillies, green peppers, meaty, sticky honey nose. Smells lively/fuelled. Talking of fuel, theres a touch of engine oil there too. Some butter and biscuits. Delicious green chillies are the star of the show.
    T: Surprising flat arrival, oily, spicy, mild honeyed bourbon, lots of spice now although water tunes it down a notch. Still building though, lots of spice
    F: Spice becomes fresh menthol, kale, chard, and aniseed with a faint honeycomb malt sweetness coming through, attempting to balance things but ultimately you're left with a fisherman's friend, some smoked honey and a polo in your mouth.
    C: What starts off as a rather pedestrian race thankfully ends with a stronger finish.
