Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Fruity in the Glenlivet 12 kind of profile (sweet apple butter) but with some more oak underneath giving it a little more spice.
P: Fruity attack that meets the expectation set up by the nose, pleasingly dry and punchy.   Simple and refreshing.
F: Gets hot for a moment but then fades to an enjoyable sweet tartness, like the lingering taste of sour patch kids.  
I started off thinking I'd give this a B, but as the initial punch of the high abv wears off I find the whisky getting a bit less interesting.  So B-.

Nose: Marmalaide and clover (faint)

 

Palate:  Strangely indistict at first taste (scotch scotchy scotch scotch).  After a while I picked up dusty oranges.  A little bit of medical glove rubber (cough left, cough right, now sniff my fingers)

 

Peppery finish.

 
Fuji
 
N: custard, oatmeal with fresh fruits cut into it, green grapes, a bit of tar and light sherry        
P: green grapes, toasted bread, a whiff of smoke        
F: fresh squeezed limes with salt and a bitter tarry aftertaste
