    A bit too aggressive and not too exciting on the palate, otherwise.

    • Nose
      82 82
      Acetone, honey, sawdust, wood shavings, very ripe apples, apple juice, overripe fruit, maple syrup, marzipan, marshmallows, very light caramel.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Alcohol bite is just a bit too much, very warm, good dose of black pepper, comes down quickly and then is very juicy, apply juice, also barley sugar, quite a lot of oaky bitterness, freshly cut grass, dry hay, sweet notes fade very quickly, dry maple syrup. Second chew brings fresh ginger, a lot of honey, maple wood, toffee, shortbread cookies, light smoke, very light raisin note. Third chew is very dry, some spices, chili, more ginger and smoke, but still juicy. Dryness lets up and it's quite mouthwatering, some steamed carrots also.
    • Finish

      Light smoke, fresh ginger, toffee, apple juice, a bit of leather, a little bit of raisins, steamed carrot sweetness, sawdust or wood shavings.

  2. Allandale did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting notesThis dram smelled like a barista's apron ( coffee,brown sugar,chocolate,) with further sweetness of honey , cinder toffee,dried dates,apricot jam and syrup-smothered pancakes, but always balanced by polished wood and a sawmill wrapped in Fablon. Waves of sweetness flooded the mouth-toffee,salted chocolate,honey,boiled sweets and lollipops and it had very attractive cigar box goodness. The reduced nose continued the wood and sweetness theme - syrup sponge pudding a lumberjack's pocket. honey nut cornflakes( including the sunshine ), butterscotch and maple syrup- completely sensual and elegant. The reduced palate was deliciously tasty and sophisticated- candy floss and passion -fruit.
