  2. Loredan scored this whisky 33 points Member Senior

    It's the nose that allows him not to sink completely. This New Make is particularly aggressive and shows almost nothing except an inability to combine flavors or even develop them. Let's bet that the small distillery is recovering with its more mature productions.

  3. jazzpianofingers did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Jesus Mother of Mary. Lemon scented public toilets dominate the nose along with yeast and glue.
    T: Terrible arrival with toilets and glue enduring, developing subtle nutty and aniseed notes.
    F: Theres an attempt towards a softer sweetness but all is lost for me at this point. Milk of magnesia finish.
    C: Terrible as it stands but no doubt the magic of maturation will transform this into fine whisky in the years to come.
