    Great Scotch and Whiskey

    It is always interesting to watch what is going to show up. Always a good choice

    So, great on the nose, palate and finish. Amazing mouth feel.

    Nose: little to no burn when you take it in deep. A lot of aromas: honey, fig, fruits... Confident 23/25.

    Palate: as described, you get the red apples, citrus fruit and you definitely get the oak. Smooth as fuck!! No burn whatsoever. 24/25

    Finish: after swishing for like a minute, still no major astringent feeling. Really smooth and amazing mouth feel. Hits all parts of the tongue with a very welcoming after taste. You pull a lot more oak at the end with those fruit and citrus notes lingering on for a solid minute after. 25/25.

    Overall:. Not a big fan of the packaging overall. A bit meh for my liking. Also the seal was a bit loose. Not sure if that is something particular with the brand or a product defect. Otherwise labelling and branding is respectable. The overall impression of the drama, however, is that it's exceptional. Not in my top 10, but definitely top 20. 21/25.

    Total= 93/100.

    Love this subscription

    Only rec’d one bottle thus far and it’s far from a disappointment. Impossible to find, which is making me savour it greatly. Add on more store bottles for a minimal cost? Can do. Get a surprise bottle that you (likely) can’t find in store? Fine by me.

    Im extremely satisfied. Getting that shipment is always a highlight. Wondering if I could get a bourbon though as the last few were Scotch. Keep up the good work!
