Gavin D. Smith

86
Nose
Cinnamon, pepper, ginger, and bright tropical fruits, with slightly savoury spice notes.
Palate
Big zesty fruits, lively oak, vanilla, mango and more ginger. Finally a hint of coal tar.
Finish
Long, spicy, and ultimately mildly metallic.
Comment
Intriguing combination of aromas and flavours. Good to see a producer introducing a whisky with such an advanced age statement into Travel Retail.

Joe Bates

86
Nose
Meaty Bovril-like aromas on the nose; some cereal notes too along with the faintest trace of sulphur.
Palate
Intensely honeyed flavour is the key character here, but also cigar smoke, oak spice and even chilli.
Finish
Dry, very long and quite fiery.
Comment
A quirky whisky, which surprises at every turn. It grows on you and a drop of water tones down its curry-like heat and reveals depth and complexity.
