jazzpianofingers gave this whisky 88 points

At first glance, it seems unfathomable that 3-4 yo Taiwanese whisky would gain ‘under the counter’ status at a whisky festival, hidden from the public gaze and undisclosed to a potentially wider customer base. Price wise however it makes sense given the Solist single cask bottlings are currently retailing for £335 [TWE Apr ’17]. On top of that, this young Taiwanese distillery is selling whisky from the Solist range faster than they can produce it. It’s quite a phenomena given you can acquire a 1967 48yo Tomintoul for the same money as an Asian 3yo. It’s crazy and exciting times.

Guided by his knowledge & expertise of sherry and whisky respectively, Nathan took Chris and I through the ‘under the counter’ Solist range Blog


N: Toffee sweet with varnished [Cognac] cherry notes.

T: Works remarkably well at strength.

F: All good,...

C: .... and in no time we were onto the next.
