"My God, the guy who put this one together must be a genius, or something." - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.

Pale straw gold. Opening inhalations include toasted marshmallows followed by melted butter and grain store; the seductive buttery characteristic persists in later passes. Sweet malty entry hints at shortbread while also being mildly grassy. Delicious, sweet, exuberant malt through the middle stages. Ends bright and spicy with hints of lemon barley sugar and orchard fruits. Great length and mouthfeel. Pristine barley is the focus from start to finish. 46% Alc/Vol. Non chill filtered. Tasted from a 20ml sample.

Other reviews... Sophisticated, sensual, salivating and seemingly serene... My God, the guy who put this one together must be a genius, or something. 95 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021

...Impeccable balance from start to finish; clean and structured. The nose is floral and fresh with jasmine, freesia, and apple blossom, plus green pears, lemon, talcum powder, and almond cream. Lemon, coconut, and vanilla form a sweet bright palate that revels in its celebration of malt: Think of apricot jam in a shortbread thumbprint cookie. Sweet and clean finish with persistent lemon, vanilla, and mouthwatering oak.

Bright fino sherry yellow color; impeccable purity. First scents after the pour are all about new saddle leather/leather gloves, sour malted barley, new spirit, grapefruit then the later sniffs detect more of the grapefruit and a touch of lime but the oak remains hidden while the barley dances a jig. Entry reinforces the grapefruit/tropical fruit asset while the midpalate goes more grainy/malty and sap-like, almost but not quite succulent. Finishes medium long, slightly resiny, leathery, lean but not austere and pleasingly youthful and sprightly. 3 Stars / Recommended -
