  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Initially caramel sweet but the revealing green-woody notes change all that, bringing dry & grainy, chalk & powdered clay also. The oiliness opens up with water with some violin resin and soft candied, vanillas. Theres an appealing murkiness. It could turn more candied but for now its sticking with a fustiness coupled with old varnished wood, scorching in the hot sun alongside,… thats it - chlorine, swimming pool chlorine!
    T: Its one of those modern, green-woody numbers. but with the peppery, vibrant beginnings soften over time. The 1st fill ex-bourbon cask maintains the spirits’ rawness but given time, nice creamy, bitty caramel develops. with mocha. To be clear however, its never that sweet and the fresh oak continues to depart its activeness without the complexity or depth of field from older vintages.
    F: Creamy, fresh, nutty caramel as expected. Finishes savoury and a little Scapa like.
    C: Its ok. Reminds me of the Linkwood 1998 WB, but hopefully without the headaches.

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Newly polished brass 
    Flavour: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    On the nose The Panel found autumnal wood spice, plums,
    peaches and Portuguese flan. Light Softmints, sweetie necklaces, grapes, green
    melon and peppermint all sung in harmony. The texture was mouth coating and
    moreish. “Creamy as you like!” exclaimed one panellist through a mouthful of
    roasted peaches and coconut panna cotta. Rumbling in the finish there were
    damsons, melons, custard creams and a prune and Armagnac tart. Water released
    pink wafers and intense woody vanilla. Then, Garibaldi biscuits, crème brulee
    caramelised sugar and mushed up bananas. Simultaniously creamy and refreshing
    (a tart mango coulis on the panna cotta?). Absolutely awesome.

    Drinking tip: Afternoon tea dram
