Nose
Exotic,suggestive of Japan. Resin,sap and sandalwood. Black banana, dry roasted spices/ white pepper/black cardamom and a hit of pomegranate molasses. Complex and multifaceted.
Palate
That mix of brininess,lanolin plus very pure fruits and added exotic spice (nutmeg especially). Then,in the middle of mouth,a peat bomb adding another layer of flavour.
Finish
Long,complex.
Comment
Powerful yet elegant. A yokozuna of malt whisky.

Nose
Cheesy,rancid at start. Like entering a dairy after it has been washed. When aerated,opens on a floral note. Narcisses maybe. Liquorice.
Palate
Sweet then abruptly fizzy and tangy. Numbing the tongue. But mouthcoating and delivering pleasant cooked fruit. Water enhances the spicy feel.
Finish
Warm,fizzy. Leaves the mouth dry.
Comment
A bit too broad shouldered. Does not seem to mellow with water. Some nice sides though.

High Society dining
The restaurant at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society ought to know about serving whisky with food. Just to check, Ian Buxton dined there twice in three days
