Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Gentle green ferns, caramel covered digestive biscuits, sweet butter, vanilla and a hint of baked bean funkiness. Honeysuckle and other floral hints, a touch of wax, pineapple kubes, smokey charcoal and a touch of leather.

    • Palate

      Musty and gently peaty with hessian sacks, bung cloth, vanilla custard, pepper, spicy leather, beeswax polish, menthol, moss, earth and spicy peat.

    • Finish

      Spicy with sweet old wood, anis, damp leaves and sweet peat.

    • Comment

      It's pretty special.

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    • Nose

      Almost luscious nose, with chocolate, parma violets and a hint of struck match. Again, as with the 12 year old, smoky bacon notes appeared when left to sit.

    • Palate

      What can only be described as a veritable explosion of flavour on the palate, with soot, grapefruit and passion fruit the most abundant. A big whisky, this is almost south coast of Islay in style.

    • Finish

      Very, very long, with a rich and creamy texture and tropical fruit flavours in abundance. Just exceptional.

    • Comment

      Sometimes almost ‘mythical’ bottlings don’t live up to their hype, but this is one that certainly does. My overall impression was just one word long – ‘wow’. If you have a chance to ever buy a bottle of this, almost whatever the cost, I’d say go for it. This is one of those whiskies that is going to be up there in my top whiskies for a long, long time.
