  1. Unclimbability scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Colour: AmberBody: Medium/FullNose: Quite chemical in a really interesting and wonderful way. Chlorine, swimming pool, floral, perfume, slight meaty note like glazed ham?, complex mint with peppermint and spearmint. Soapy and a bit funky but pulls it off with amazing style.Taste: Much softer than the other two. Sherry, rich raisin, oily and mouth coating. Really long, paced development with amazing oak and juicy dried fruit. Complex mint with peppermint, slightly floral too with some good soap.Finish: Long length. Toffee, chocolate and juicy tannins. An incredible finish that just keeps giving.From a refill Sherry Hogshead. Some really unique notes here and it really unfurls. This triggers something in me, something emotional. Beautiful whisky.90/100
