  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This Vintage is an assembly of several barrels and unfiltered cold. Nose quite fruity and floral, but which erases rather quickly. Mouth quite sweet and fruity. Finale a bit more biting on the alcohol. A small whisky suitable as starter but quite unbalanced on alcohol that is a little too perceptible despite its reduction.
