    • Nose
      85 85
      A gentle Bunna, riped yellow apples followed by some citrus peels refined by a maritime note
    • Taste
      85 85
      it is a very gentle sherry, no tannis or sulphur notes.
      The palate delivers what the nose detected. Citrusy fresh fruits and a hint of salt (minerality)
      Quite refined to be just 8 years old, it has a good balance and a decent body, might be a bit boring after a while but a really easy, approachable whisky.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Quite a short finish but still nothing off the tracks, still very enjoyable.
      The taste might get better after a while opened.

    • Nose
      Very reserved in the nose, rather inconspicuous, a little vanilla and sweetened butter cake.
    • Taste
      just as mild in the mouth but sweet as sugar! Lots of vanilla, then a little caramel and shortbread, really fat buttery shortbread. A few citrus fruits join it
    • Finish
      ... and then he is almost gone. Not a long finish, a short starter but quite fun, a nice sweetness remains with a slightly dry mouthfeel.
