  2. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: honeyed cookies, peach, mango, pear, green apple and a little tangerine. With water and some 30 minutes there's also lychees, roasted peanuts and some mint.

    Taste: white bread dipped in honey, ripe yellow fruits like peach and mango, a mild herbal note, mint and a whiff of pepper. Water and time especially bring the minty notes to the front.

    Finish: not that long considering the age of this bottling, honey, mild oak spices, a little liquorice with faint aniseed, white pepper.
