  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Appearance: Amber-orange.

    Nose: Campfire smoke, honey, light wax, raisin, cinnamon, malt biscuit.

    Palate: Smoky, salty, barley sugar.

    Finish: Sweet and malty, smooth, honey and biscuits.

    With Water: Comes together wonderfully.

    Overall: Very smooth and well balanced. Not super unique or impressive but delicious. I was actually a bit more impressed by the 10 y.o. at the distillery. Could be that this has been opened too long.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    nose is crisp and fresh. Gentle, weaving smoke whirls above apple peels
    and crisp pears. The palate is of medium-body and very crisp. There are
    notes of peels and cut orchard fruits, a little floral note and a
    subdued peat smoke. The finish is of good length with a little spicy
    sweetness and smoke.
