Product Description

Reviewed by Dave Broom on ScotchWhisky.com 94 points

Nose: Amazing concentration of fruit. So ludicrous, in fact, that you have to laugh. There’s mango, guava, papaya, lots of kiwi, a hint of rose, some ripe peach, then banana and fragrant quince. Compressed, sweet and explosive. It seems to be whisky, but actually occupies a different space in the world of pure aroma. If the 26-year-old was all about crepuscular, smoke-filled mysteries, this is about sunlight and brightness. It’s open, with a lack of guile or contrivance. It just is what it is. As it develops, there’s this tiny touch of salinity and a mild indication of fade. The bleached oak also begins to nudge its way in on the sides, while the fruits pick up a little more brightness, become more yellow, sharp. Just amazing.

Palate: A burst of fruits, but what else were you expecting? It’s almost Cognac-like, but without the headiness; this is fruits reduced to an essence, but not caramelised or in any way losing their individual identities. That acidity seen on the developed nose is here as well, while there’s a slight sour green mango edge that’s needed to add balance and an extra layer of complexity, as well as an anise note.

Finish :Fades, leaving flavours of caraway and apple shrub.
