Distiller: MIlk and Honey
Bottler: Single Cask Nation
Brand: Single Cask Nation
ABV: 61.3% ABV
Age: 2 Years
Nose: Ethanol, buttered biscuits, light and bready. Not a ton of character. Nice waxy fruits. This reminds me of a bonkers young Clynelish or Glenturret.
Taste: Thick mouth feel – prominent syrupy component. Lordie, though, it’s hot. Powerful but oh so hot. Honey, toffee, plum, light molasses, sour apple, rotting pear, musty fruit. Faint waxy varnish note, lots of ethanol.
Finish: Long, but hot and musty. Apples, pears, faint musty fig. Waxy fruit continues, much like Dole fruit syrup. That said, it’s bonkers hot.
Overall: The potential is there. This has the stuff it takes to be super good, but it needs more time. The only flaw I can indict is the punishing heat, and that can be solved with time. Move my mark from the doubter column to “watching with great interest”.
