- Just opened the 78/100 bottle, and 10 months after waking up, the aroma of Vita lemon tea appeared and the alcohol feel became rounded 86/100
- He already surprised me. Did not expect much and the nose has already confirmed me. That is not very special. The taste is then really good and funny.
Pear. Citrus fruit. Immature kiwi. I think he needs a few drops of water. He seems a bit tight. But first a mouthful.
Amazing sweetie. I did not expect that. He is also fine. Caramel. Banana milk. Coconut. Oatcake. Pleasant sharpness.
The banana milk and the sharpness holds. It is getting drier.
- SMWS tasting note:
‘Mmm – funky!’ someone said – all cake shops and gardens on the nose; plus foamy bananas, jam and Chinese food on a Fablon-covered wooden table. The neat palate was feisty but complex, mouth-filling and well-textured, with flavours of marzipan, sweet chilli sauce, putty, liquorice and cinnamon leading to a teasingly playful, sherbety finish. The reduced nose had sherbet straws, white chocolate, an array of ripe fruits and camomile tea, with hints of PVC raincoats and photocopy paper. The reduced palate became mellower, but managed to retain some of its youthful exuberance – Blackpool rock, glazed ribs, liquorice stick and gentle spiced oak.DRINKING TIP: Use this in a still-life arrangement on a Fablon table – paint it – drink the whisky and then paint it again.
