  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Big bad horror looking reindeer and santa, fun lovely label.

    N- Warming oat meal and gingerbread (just to go along with xmas-y theme) initially, follow by smokes potpourri with roasted sunflower seeds. Then it seems get lighter, closing up and went to sleeps. Whiff of new leather building up again after a while, get farm-y and raw wood, cardamon, curry powder spices which are all nice, but also some elementary soapy notes that not quite gel.

    P- White winery, a spicy gewürztraminer notes. White fruits, ripe apricots, vanilla, peppery and oily spicy, hefty strength are felt on the palate.

    F- Long, rather heavy on finishing, but hit on the crossbar instead back of the net. Oily, as well echoing chewy dry notes. Bitter cocoa with touch of salts and mineral. More than decent with some flaw here and there.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
