  1. Nosingbär scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Strong in character and beautifully balanced between sweetness, bitterness and spiciness. One of the best 12 year olds for me and definitely worth 88/100 points.
    • Nose
      fresh, fruity sherry flavors, herbs and gentle bitterness. Dessert flavors in the background: vanilla, creme brulee. Shortbread. Ginger and a little resin. Green tea. Malty, toffee. Very sweet aromas with fruit and herbs, slightly bitter. Honey. Gentle floral aromas mingle with the meadow herbs. The initial bitter fruitiness becomes sweeter, towards jammy.
    • Taste
      Sweet, bitter, spicy. Vanilla, honey, raisins, caramel, bitter earthy herbs, ginger, orange peel, hazelnuts. Creamy, full-bodied. Cereals, cereals.
    • Finish
      Bitter-fruity but also sweet finish with tannins and dessert sweetness on the palate. Caramelized nuts. Toffee. Malt.
