    N- Last on the range available in Malaysia from the postcode distillery. Jaw dropping good with the other two (NAS and 8YO), so will try not to judgemental over this one. Nosing warm malt wash infused with liquorice from an oak mug, thick air on a warm evening. Naturally mellower, not as active and aggressive as the younger siblings. Husky, raisin cookies comes thru, minty eucalyptus oilmen, cocoa honey, nutmeg and brandied wood shaves. (91/22)

    P- Citrus and dried fruits integrated well with the sweet oak. Some ripe sulphur, if there is such thing with good strength felt on the nose. Adequate but feel wee hollow at times. (87/21)

    F- Long, silky smooth, milky, caramel, dried fruit, almond cookies with chocolate chips. Very approachable at high strength. (90/22)

    B/B- 90/22

    Cr-3, Fr-3, Fl-1, Pt-0, Ft-2, Sp-1, Wd-3, Wn-1, Sc-2

  3. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Quite floral and fruity, however lack of depth in flavour for such an expensive bottle.
    • Nose
      Strong bubble pop (or some might say wax oak)! After breath for awhile it become quite floral, some pear, green apple, white wood, nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Fruity with oaky floral. Quite sweet, with some dark chocolate with some nutmeg behind.
    • Finish
      Medium long, with some oakiness
