Box Distillery's The Challenger Single Malt. Image courtesy Box Distillery.This is the second whisky in Box Distillery’s initial series of single malts, and was released in late November of 2014. The nose is malty with notes of vanilla, coconut, almonds, and hints of pineapple and grapefruit. The taste is peppery, but with an underlying complexity and notes of caramel candy, fudge, and toffee underneath the spicy top notes. Touches of coconut and almond in the background add balance. The finish is dry and slightly tart with citrusy touches and a hint of spice. Young, but showing great promise for the future. (December, 2014)
