  1. Bam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Like, dominant vanilla and lemon, but behind it both in the nose, and on the palate, behind these two flavors still much to discover. Alcohol is very well integrated, it also tolerates water very well.
    • Nose
      Strong vanilla and lemon. Very sweet and slightly salty. Behind it lies a slightly sour yeast dough note, together with malt and various garden herbs. Butter biscuits, banana and almonds.
    • Taste
      Strong start, silky mouthfeel. Starts very sweet with caramel, brown sugar and vanilla, then again very strong lemon, also that is very sweet, but at the same time also salty. The banana comes again. Then the oak slowly announces itself and becomes stronger and stronger.
    • Finish
      Medium. White pepper, oak, dark chocolate, mint and lemon. Astringent.

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      82 82
      Bit of whey, vanilla, ice cream and butter and fatty cake. This becomes less dominant over time
    • Taste
      85 85
      muffins with blueberries. chocolate sprinkles
    • Finish
      84 84
      fatty, like an oliebol (deepfried dough with raisins, served with powdered sugar)

  9. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Densely structured and at first salty and spicy and a bit like pine nuts. Will be more fragrant and quite complex. Again salt but also butter and bouillon cubes.
      With water fresher and lemony. Yeast, bouillon cubes, salt, butter and overall tightly structured.
    • Taste
      Complex and wonderfully composed. Ripe vanilla, salt, pine nuts, oak, but again hints of bouillon cubes and grass.
      With water: grassy, citric and quite metallic. In addition, grass and a complex Floralität.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, salty, roasted and full of spicy oak.
