    Another top notch example of fruity whisky. Distillate and cask in perfect harmony! A slightly too acidic palate.. And yes that is nitpicking on a very high level, but it didn't even bother me. A bottle please!

    Based on a sample.
    • Nose
      I spot that oily fruitiness in here, we're in for a good time! Apricot, orange oil, mango, passion fruit and blueberry.
      Then some sweets like rice pudding, cookie dough, Sultana and caramel. Further on linseed oil, vinegar, menthol and a little wood glue. These are the malts you could sniff for hours. Perfectly layered.
    • Taste
      Very soft with its ABV and a lovely oily texture.
      Apple compote, apricot, pineapple, orange peel, overripe banana, plum and fig. Rice pudding, cacao dusting, honey and cotton candy account for the sweetness.
      Then malt, vanilla, ointment and a little menthol again.
      Slightly too acidic but top quality nevertheless. Love these concentrated fruit bombs.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. Dried fruits in abundance, brown sugar and some pine needles.

    My first sip was the best one, unfortunately. After that, the sourness was too present on the palate to make this a 90-pointer. Not bad but I’ve had better Glenturrets from 1977. Slightly disappointing, I dare to say.

    N- Not at all anything "fishy" as suggested with the giant kracken shown on the label. Instead this is for pastry lover, delicious vanilla custard, milk candy, sour fruit tarts, chocolate danish, shredded dehydrated coconut with fine musky wood notes.

    P- Lifted floral fragrant with abundance of ripe tropical fruits, rice pudding, coated with thick vanilla and soft honey. Full without being offensive, well structured and matured by years of aging, well layered of oak and strength at great harmony.

    F- Long, mildly sweet liquorice, minty with right touch of restrained spiciness that lasts, great bottling. — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    A fine substance from the bourbon barrel.
    • Nose
      Yes, yes, yes. The spirit has taken everything and the barrel has given the best. Deep aromas of vanilla, caramel / toffee / fudge, hinig, butterscotch. Very fruity (tropical fruits), bubble gum, coconut, gummy, cake dough / pancake / biscuit, marzipan. Complex, multilayered, simply awesome. 45 points
    • Taste
      Medium viscosity, many thick streaks on the glass. From the nose to the mouth, it continues seamlessly. Creamy-oily texture with a lot of herbal-spicy honey, vanilla, caramel / fudge, citrus, citrusy oranges, creamy brulee. Overall sweet-creamy-nutty. 45 points.
    • Finish
      Medium long, lots of honey, herbal aromas, sweet and toasted oak.
