  3. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Sweet, citrusy, and floral. The nose becomes almost citrus laundry detergent at times, but in a good way. The taste is sweet at first, but becomes spicier and more bitter and herbal toward the finish. The palate rushes into the finish quickly. Not amazing, but not bad either.
    • Nose
      Nag champa and mixed raw dried grains, nutmeg and clove, cinnamon coated baked apples, mixed fresh fruits, malt and citrus peels, vanilla wafers and light oak, and lemon cordial with a floral note riding on the final alcohol burn.
    • Taste
      Fresh fruits (apples, pears, and tangerines) and gentle dried fruits (dates, papaya, pineapple), malt and a touch of molasses, fresh ginger and floral honey, sweet osmanthus, and oak tannins
    • Finish
      Baking spices, Cafe macchiato, light oak and barrel char with a lingering bitter-sweet floral maltiness.
