  4. Ostap scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    At first I was not very impressed with the aroma, but later it is gaining a lot and is quite pleasant. The taste is wonderful, very cute. A decent aftertaste, though it's bitter bitter. Good job! Cool to drink.

  8. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Powerful, almost naughty, it is however very generous on the apple, the perfumed malt then with the opening, the berries and the chocolate. Some discreet notes of lemon.
    • Taste
      Very strong, which tends to spoil a chouia the great consistency that the mouth with the nose.
      With water, a certain warm roundness settles finally.
    • Finish
      Very consistent again. Beautiful spicy length with a little water.

      Nose 4/5
      Mouth 3/5
