  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Great distillate driven whisky. I love the fruitiness, but it has even more to offer than simply being a very fruity whisky. Wonderful!
    • Nose
      Very light, with hint of fruit (white grapes, green apple peel, apple juice) and a layer of grassiness, followed by a whisper of aniseed. It has a slightly chalky quality too. A light acidity, as well as a subtle waxiness rounds everything out. I love this.
    • Taste
      Lemon and grapefruit, as well as green apples and sweet apricots and nectarines. There's even some charred oak and a hint of smoke. Did I mention that I love this?
    • Finish
      Chalky, with some drops of apple juice. Medium in length.

    • Nose
      91 91
      A perfectly light, sweet and fruity nose. Apple, pear, peach, lychee, lemon, floral, vanilla, sugarbread, fruitcake, some sweet grassy butter.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy, apple, pear, peach, bitter citrus, peppery, mild notes of sweet barley and ginger, slight herbal spiciness.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Short sweetness and medium spicy bitterness. Vanilla, some fruity honey sweetness, shifting to bitter grapefruit notes and drying wood spices.

    Had the opportunity to have this at the Gathering recently and it doesn't disappoint IMHO. Nice light whisky to begin or have second in a flight.

  4. Trops scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    In fact, it is very open, no preludes: pure fruity sweet aroma of pear and white grapes, confectionery essence, a hint of kumquat, having become drier, notes of fermented raisins from bread kvass (!). Gave him half an hour. The taste of mineral, a little "with blood", a little citrus, anise drop, freshly cut oak wood. Body - light, aftertaste - average. In the aftertaste there is an elusive note of Oriental oil for aroma lamp (?). The aroma is the strongest component, as for me at 91, the rest is simpler, well, and a strong discrepancy between flavor and taste. I wanted to put more, but - deserved 88. Summer molt.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Had this one in a blind tasting. Very fresh and fruity, with a slight bitter touch in taste. Very good and pleasant whisky for sure.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity, yellow fruits, citrus, some hints of cocos as well. Very full scent.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pretty strong, sparkling, yellow fruits, tropical fruit, citrus. A very slight bitter edge.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Now a bit more smooth, yet warming in the belly. Yellow fruits with a bitter touch, grapefruits, middle long.

    Part of the ‘HWF Thuisfestival’ edition 4 line up
    • Nose
      Light and delicate nose. Beautifully subtle matured! White grapes, apple, apple juice, chalk and some lime peel. Absolutely a classy nose
    • Taste
      Soft, oily and again chalky. Beautiful palate. I absolutely adore this kind of style. It’s sweet & sour. Quite some citrus fruit influence here and a wee hint of dried oak. Subtle spices also are available. Spices like cinnamon and licorice. Also there is a wee hint of mint in the background.
    • Finish
      Long and pleasing. Great combination of both nose and palate! Canned tropical fruit syrup combined with fresh/sour citrus fruits (very grapefruit/pomelo like) and oakwood shavings.
