    • Nose
      The high alcohol percentage is noticeable, but not distracting. Somewhat nutty to start, with macademias and mainly walnuts, but also plenty of fresh red fruits, like strawberry, plus some raspberry. There's even a hint of rum-soaked raisins, as well as sultanas. Very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Lovely creamy texture, with hints of caramel and honey, but it also is quite spicy. Think chili peppers. While the nose is fairly well-rounded, the palate lacks balance, and is more youthful. Add water, and it becomes more nutty. Not much room left for any fruit flavours to leave an impact.
    • Finish
      Spices linger for a little while.

    Not quite in balance, smell especially fruity that does not really come back in the taste, especially sweet. And alcohol more prominently in the smell than in the body and finish. Nevertheless, a very pleasant and strong whisky.
    • Nose
      Strong alcohol is equal, grassy, ​​hay, little leather, raisins, honey, rhubarb now, and plums. Also a hint of overripe banana.
    • Taste
      Spicy, firm, but alcohol well under control given the high Abv. Honey, cappuccino, a bit of chocolate too, and a little caramel. Much sweeter and less fruity than the smell.
    • Finish
      Slightly tingling, long. Sweet, honey, peach. Now also more chocolate, some coffee later, and caramel.
