  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    N- Concentrated nutmeg, almond, orange and vanilla at high strength.  Oozing with stickiness on aroma.  All are nice on it's own.  Leaning towards component, but more than decent.  

    P- Spirit-y, spicy liquorice with tinge of salted smoke meat.  Pickled ginger,  toffee, chocolate with drift of white oak.  

    F- Medium-long, coarse wood with sugar, cherry sweet distillate with oak honey liquorice, ultra modern.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
