    [November, 2021] I am not really a fan of grain whiskies but from time to time I try one simply to experience (and enjoy, if it is good) their very different taste...

    ...and this is good one, no doubt. It offers a lot of interesting high-esther aromas and flavours both in the nose and on the palate which are usually a trademark of excellent rum (which I like too). So if anyone wants to experience such a rather strange whisky profile he/she should go for this release, otherwise be careful.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The colour is burnished and the nose offers a powerful and interesting profile with lots of aceton aromas (nail varnish remover, adhesive glue) beside many nutty (almonds, walnuts) and sweet (barley sugars, fruits) impressions. I guess this is a love-it-or-hate-it affair and I love it (because of its unusual profile).
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste is powerful and unusual too with lots of high-esther flavours which usually come with excellent rum maturations. Actually, in a blind setting I would have guessed a good rum indeed. The complexity is somewhat limited but the balance is nice with barley sugars, wooden spices and fruits in the mix too.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and turns more to the sweet side of the barley again without distracting moments again. Some water releases tasty chocolatey notes both in the nose and on the palate and the dram turns smoother hence even more quaffable. Personally I prefer this dram at around 46% abv.
