Nose: Lemon curd, limoncello and spearmint leaves. It starts to get sweeter and sweeter on the nose every minute after being allowed to air in the glass. Vanilla, clementine soda and sliced oranges. Yellow gummi bears, teak wood and yellow plums. Just a couple drops water and voilà: Lemon ice cream, old school bubblegums and chocolate covered bananas. Mind-blowingly good...
Palate: A massive fruit bowl packed with all kind of fresh and candied fruits: Candied orange peels, candied figs and quince paste. Freshly sliced mangos, guavas and pineapples. Lemon meringue pie, key lime pie and no-bake orange cheesecake. Although it performs perfectly well at cask strength adding water improves it even more same like it did on the nose: Orange liquor, passion fruit puree and canned stone fruits. I don't think that it is possible to pack more fruit notes on a palate of a whisky.
Finish: Long with lemon and orange zest and lightly toasted wood. Not like a note coming from a toasted barrel though. It's more like accumulated slightly burnt saw dust on a carpenter's shop floor.
Overall: An absolute stunner... It reminds me legendary 1960's bourbon cask aged fruit bomb Bowmores minus the peat. I really cannot come up with anything else to add at this point other than saying: "If you see one in the wild, get it immediately..."
