    • Nose

      The smell that hits you first is wet grass and hay, prickly, wafer, fudge & spice
    • Taste
      89 89
      Fat on the palate, the spices are still there with some stewed fruit like mango & plum, hints or fresh b pineapple but they are distant. Nice mouth feel with a little caramel
    • Finish
      89 89
      Good medium length, remaining spicy and sweet

  6. ctu scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The distillation character is well felt, with it sufficiently sweet, spicy and also vividly acidic.
    • Nose
      Sherry and spicy oak. Waxy apple, currant, gooseberry. Touch of ginger, camphor and mint.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Honeyed apple puree. Big dose of oak. Salt and pepper, chili chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long, creamy, sour. Herbals, toffee and oak.
