Nose
Savoury,floral,with touches of blueberry and cranberry.
Palate
Not like the nose:full,bold,oily and with a savoury mushroom note under the barley.
Finish
Long,full and earthy.
Comment
A growling bear among a bunch of deer-like whiskies.This is a good thing. The mushroomy noteis one I associate with new Japanese whiskies.

Robin Laing

78
Nose
Quite assertive; heady and sweet with toffee,honey,crème brulée and pumpkin; also violet and lavender. A salty tang that turns solventy, even metallic.
Palate
Velvety smooth and sweet but big and spicy with lots of heat and a bitter twist.
Finish
Liquorice,nutmeg.
Comment
Tasty and substantial.
