Best Argentinian Single Malt Whisky 2016

In the nose, spirity and sour top notes preside over a fatty, unctuous base: butterscotch and a still-sizzling wok-full of chicken in chilli and black bean sauce. Getting into the mouth reveals a thin, watery texture and toffee sweetness alongside dried orange peel and highlights of white pepper and lime juice. The finish gives the powdery sweetness of candy and a very sharp, very tart papaya and lemon salad. Very interesting and different with an intriguing disparity.
