  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    What a nose, a story to himself. It is worth a good 95.
    Unfortunately the mouth is a little too much caramel. It's still very good.
    • Nose
      Tasted just after # 3827. We would be here on a sherry against a bourbon for the previous one.

      Nose there too sublime. More round, complex, and coiled. More spices. But less on the fruit salad.
      Camphor, eucalyptus, fruits. Peach, wood, caramel, strawberry, dark chocolate. Cane sugar.
      Fresh mint that increases with aeration.
    • Taste
      In the mouth the caramel is a little too present.
      It covers a little fruit. Plum, strawberry too mature, peach, apricot, dried fruit, nuts, almonds.
      Quince, camphor,
    • Finish
      Finale also on fresh mint that rolled up the fruit. Captivating. Gorgeous. So long for less than 42%

    Sample from Golden Promise.

    This is a unique whisky with a characteristic green tint to it that weirdly makes it look a bit like extra virgin olive oil. What is even weirder is that the savoury aromas of rancio and the camphory distillate character do in fact give me the impression of extremely high-quality olive oil, accompanying the insanely complex tropical fruits.
    A unique and memorable dram indeed.

    Nothing to add. All is said.
    • Nose
      Just out of the bottle, and while the whisky has not yet fallen into the glass, we know that we are facing a great whisky. It's immediate, everything is already there. A radiant exoticism, melted, super powerful. The pineapple stands out, but everything is very homogeneous. No alcohol, just fruit. (not necessarily had time to give him time to open)
    • Taste
      Here again, fruit, fruit and fruit. Of course it is still the exoticism that is at the rendezvous. Beautiful aromatic power but it is especially the finesse and delicacy of this mouth that impresses. Great.
    • Finish
      If you have to find a fault, it will be her. Obviously too short, since we would like it to last longer.
