    Nose:-
    Minty & eucalyptus upfront. Soft and lightly pungent. Let the dram
    breath in the glass for a while, hay and wet tree branches emerged,
    moist.

    Palate:- A shock. Don't taste how it smell like. Very
    astringent and bold. Non spicy but very hot, mouthfull with gingery
    spice, the heats building up and up. Eye watering stuff.

    Finish:- Smooth and long finish. Dry and hot throughout, complex. A touch floral.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    "A cracking dram from the great man, Jim McEwan. Fresh and subtle, with

    vanilla flavours from the Bourbon casks, fresh exotic fruit and a

    well-rounded maltiness."
    TWE

  4. mmaclean scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A replacement to the original 10 year old, which is now off the market. A

    clean, straightforward dram with a lightness and freshness which is

    very inviting. Notes of vanilla cream, light caramel, tropical fruit

    (coconut, pineapple), clementine, pear, and a hint of currant.

    Appetizing, subtly briny finish.
