  2. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very rich and dense, but still a young speaker, there is a lack of a variety of derivatives in both aroma and taste / finish, there is no depth or complexity, sometimes it is sharp, and the potential for further aging is felt, and the barrel, though the first pouring, but apparently very weak; very easily goes at its considerable percentages of alcohol.
    • Nose
      Clear, moist, the first nose - raw wood, crushed ashberry; medicinal herbs, medicinal notes, freshly cut wood, sweet creamy confectionery notes - cream made of boiled condensed milk, toffee;
    • Taste
      A rich, sharp, spicy oak, bitter-sweet hues - ashberry, viburnum; a little bark, varnish notes, carpentry motifs.
    • Finish
      Spicy, lemon peel, a little red pepper, vanilla, sweet honey-floral notes, a little bark, a grapefruit crust.

    SMWS tasting notes:

    It was immediately fruity with a juicy punch of tangerine, pineapple chunks in syrup and baked apple sprinkled with brown sugar. The fruit combined with a buttery note like scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam but also sweet brioche bread and almond croissants. The palate warmed the soul with citric heat and cooling menthol before caramel and vanilla combined with honeycomb crunch and the suggestion of perfumed tobacco. Water revealed pine forest floors and pickled ginger whilst the cream tea had transformed into lime cheesecake. The finish carried exotic spices and star anise with the lingering memory of banana whipped cream and bitter lemon.
