Tasting notes of TheGreatMothra:

19. Jan 2020
Nosing: Pineapple Apple Cinnamon
Sweet and fruit led. Pineapple and red apple. Some sweet spiciness - cinnamon showing through.

Taste: Tropical Fruit Melon Lemon Peel Pepper
Intense, sweet arrival. Dried tropical fruits, lemon oil and melon. Fruit intensity and white pepper heat build over time. Quite a thick creamy mouthfeel.

Finish: Fruit Oak
Long. Fruitiness remains for a considerable period, then transitions into more woody flavours.

Comment:
This is a really good whisky to have a go at if you're a bit tired of the heavily cask influenced bottlings out there. This is a lot more spirit driven. The flavour intensity is on point, and the whole thing just works really well. This is sort of what I feel like you would get if you took one of the more basic 'beginner' fruit led malts and amped it up to 11. A bit more expensive, but well worth trying if you can find it.
