With faint whiffs, this is full of Oil of Olay-type face creams. With deeper nosing there is vanilla, jojoba suncreams, some herbal liquor elements, and green strawberries. Delve too deep and the nose prickles.
Sexy, silky entry in the mouth, with bourbon creaminess, sweet toffee and cocoa cake batter, pistachio and stracciatella gelati, with a slightly peppery, even smoky(?) finish.

Could not believe this was a grain whisky! One of the best whiskies I have ever had. Delicate and so smooth.

I bought this one because it felt nicely grainy on the palate when I tried it at a trade show, but I got tired of it before the bottle got to ½ full. Way too much new wood, and not in a nice way. Teenager's vanilla perfume + pencils + sawdust. The grain is there somewhere but this one's rather for friends of bourbon than friends of grain.

I was introduced to Hedonism at a private whisky tasting in Singapore recently and it blew me away, from nose to palate it is a unique experience. Very highly recommended

Big up Compass Box! Tried their entire range at a TWE event. Chose this for my father in law's birthday. He ;loves It. But there wasn;t a duff dram in the entire range. All magnificent. This goes so smoothly from nose to palate to finish. Herbs and Spice vying for attention throughout the ride...with a sweet wood bourbonesque touch as well. Faint marshmallow note on the nose carries all this on a bed of vanilla sweetness to the end. Masterful!
