(67,4%, Archives ‘Fishes of Samoa’ 2015, sherry butt #900016, 172 btl.)

Nose: sweet and spicy, like gingerbread. Red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). Caramel and molasses. Light vegetal hints (tomato plants) as well as some fresh oak shavings.

Mouth: drinkable at full strength, but rather closed. Sweet, showing red fruit candy and pomegranate. Pepper. With water more jammy fruits, milk chocolate and fig syrup. Rum and raisins. Mocha. Noticeable oak, with a minty / peppery edge.

Finish: long, sweet fruits and spicy oak.

Another high pressure youngster from a very active cask. I think the Daily Dram version was slightly better, this one needs some fiddling with water to get it right. Available from Whiskybase, around € 65.

Score: 85/100
