    a whisky with intense but few aromas

      cryptically:
      Vanilla and citrus
      very cute
      a bit smoky & maritime
    • Taste
      Start slightly bitter and alcoholic
      raw dough
      Almond (marzipan)
      raisins
      in the smoke come vanilla and citrus
    • Finish
      short
      Bitter almond oil
      citrus
      dry wood
      raisins

  3. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Muddy with oak and an overpowering wine influence to start, it requires plenty of time.
    Bitter oak, wine bits, canola oil, raisins, some vanilla and lemon zest. Nothing stands out much other than the finishing that is pleasantly medium in length but has a soft citric notes alongside a sweet plum sensation.
    So the note and finish are the winners.

    Notes from internet.
    • Nose
      Definitely wine treated. Hints of port wine with sourish notes that remind me of cellars and of raspberry vinegar. Lots of red berries, strawberry marmalade, grapes, hints of cherry liqueur. A bit of musty oak as well. Enticing, but very, very winey.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
    • Taste
      Less fruity sweet than I expected although there is still berry juice to be found. Fresh, sour notes again, then some grapefruit, heavy wine and wood. Cooked strawberries.
    • Finish
      Warm, quite long and winey.
