    • Nose
      Hot and peppery, dried herbs, very farmy, fierce apple juice, manure.
    • Taste
      Intense, citrusy, mineral, inky sugar, citrus fruits, very minty, OBE, huge camphor.
    • Finish
      Peppery, chemical, minty sugar, celery salt, medium length.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad whisky, but also not very compelling. This is a hot whisky no matter how much water you add. Very one dimensional, with not much in the way of flavor development over time, or with increasing amount of water.  If I were to have a whole bottle of this, and I have to pay over $150, I probably wouldn't be very thrilled. To be honest, I probably gave this an extra point or two because it's a closed distillery, and I'm a whisky romantic.
    • Nose
      Burns the hair on my nostrils, as expected... a bit of Clorox, which is unfortunate, and the nose is definitely very closed. 
    • Taste
      Very warming, malty, unripe pears, vanilla, a bit grassy, very hot, but also quite balanced... let's not mess around, where's the water? With a bit of H2O, aloe, green apples, grassy, and guess what, still very hot. Where's the water again?!? I do want to say that with enough water, I actually can taste a bit of lagavulin peat in this, but it could also be my imagination. 
    • Finish
      As I said before, this is actually quite balanced despite its strength. Finish is long, but it doesn't really matter -- I would score this the same even if it's short. It just doesn't give me any wow.
