Member Ratings and Notes
I like this whisky quite a lot. Nose of bright apple, with something floral like scented hand soap, and also a little tinge of actual soap. Palate -- yum! A burst of lighter fall fruits, with those apples from the nose, with a great spice mix (cinnamon most notably), some lemon. Finishes nicely with pleasing heat. Great/Excellent, B+/A-

Very light color


N: Grassy, lemon rind, lemon bar.  Very lowland.


P: Confectioner's sugar, lemon drop.


F: Medium lemon lollipop.  


Unique malt that I have had with mussels and loved.  

N: First nose is bizarrely overripe smelling, like decaying fruit, and slightly butyric.   The less desirable aspects fade with time.
P: Thankfully the nose does not represent the palate, what comes through is punchy fruit with mineral notes.  Really enjoyable.
F: Lemon and wet stones (on the nose).
This is odd stuff, but I really like it. 

n: Caramel in a tin bucket


p: Matches and honeysuckle.  It's a bit thin.  Finish in faintly fresh cut firewood.  Very faint.


A ridulously easy to sip malt.


Buttered popcorn, lemon meringue, lime zest, metallic and mineralic.


Thin and dry. Brown pear and apple sauce.


Waxy finish
