|Robert Karlsson||Nice darker fruits amidst (good) hardbread at first, then it's more on christmasy suryp bread. Intriguing sourly sooty smoke in there also. Yammy berries arrive with time. Taste immediately on a rather excellent berried smokiness. Round, sweet, sooty and so drinkable. |
|Krishna Nukala||Excellent smoke with phenols. Brine. Some fahrt notes. Very dry- almost like tannins- Spicy and sweet. More phenols on palate and finish. Lovely whisky. Scored 90 in first tasting but reduced to 88 in final scoring. Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013 |
|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Pale amber
- Nose: Oooh, this is rich, strong, musty, maybe in an old delapidated warehouse kind of way. All this just gently unfolds and expands over time and eventually suggests a few lingering casks in hidden corners, plus cardamom seeds .... mmmmm, nice.
- Palate: This is very mouth-filling, possibly mouth-coating with a rich herbal woodiness and suggestions of exotic fruitiness whilst being quite solid and earthy. I like it, lots.
- Finish: Long and earthy.
- Overall Impression: I really love that mixture of musty warehouse on the nose followed by herbal woodiness and exotic fruitiness on the palate. A very good whisky indeed. |
