  1. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    needs a lot of water but remains hot, one of those jet fuel kinda casks. some nice typically savoury notes. quite tasty once dialed in though austere stuff, not for everyone. thanks to DI for the sample. 6+/10
    • Nose
      hot, sherbet lemons, cheddar and mustard, yes maybe even sausages (cumberland), quite waxy (molten pool of candle wax), mineralic, reminiscent a bit of modern young clynelish
    • Taste
      more wax, salt, lavender, pressed linens, slightly bready, hot, dry, crisp, rice lager, ancient cheddar and wholegrain mustard in the finish, and maybe distant ham hock too

  3. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes:The initial scent had plenty of polished wood, lit pure beeswax candles, hessian sacks filled with coffee beans and pear drops in a paper sweetie bag. With a little time very different aromas emerged like marinated sardines with fennel, raisins and pine nuts as well as acacia and hazelnut raw nut honey. The taste was like grilled pickled hot dogs with a horseradish mustard relish and sea salted toffee by the side. Water added lavender bath salts, Parma violet cupcakes and pear sorbet with runny honey on the nose and on the palate a refreshing glass of ‘Berliner Weisse’ flavoured with raspberry syrup.

    DRINKING TIP: Warm sunny late afternoon – is it beer o’clock yet?
