HammerHead Review note
a couple of months ago
HammerHead gave this whisky 89 points

Nose: almonds, ginger, freshly baked bread with a little honey, vanilla and citrus.

Taste: ripe pears and honey, nutty and grainy.

Finish: honeyed breakfast cereal, ripe white fruits, malty with a very mild bitter note. Could perhaps have been a little more prolongued considering the time of maturation.

I would not have given this 27/28 years, tastes at least 10 years younger. Still a very nice whisky, especially the well integrated grainy notes.
