  2. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Savoury-sweet bourbon character with notes of coconut husk and dark wooden furniture shavings.
    T: Savoury-to-sweet malt with a chew on chocolate and soil. Very balanced, middle ground malt with vanilla oak and a little cream of coconut.
    F: Amongst other things, sushi-ginger, the somewhat predictable vanilla and a heathery, dry spice at the death.
    C: A good, 'tech' dram but one that grates after only one.

    SMWS tasting notes:

    An elaborate tapestry of flavour threading its way through dry vermouth, rose hip tea, wheat fields and thyme before developing sweeter strands of fresh pineapple, plum flan, Turkish delight and chocolate chip cookies. The texture was viscous like cough syrup and sticky flapjack, entwining waxy lemon skin, sweet tobacco leaf, black forest gateau, agave syrup and herb liqueur. Completing the picture were sundried tomatoes, fennel, sunflower seeds, refreshing herbal tea and new pine flooring. After spending 23 years in an ex-Bourbon hogshead, this was transferred into a virgin oak hogshead for the remainder of its maturation.

    DRINKING TIP: For the late afternoon in the allotment.
