  2. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a nice Bunna in the 89 / 90s ExBC style, reminds me of Wiebers Steamliners 1990 25yo and that is also my problem with this painting here - it just costs almost 100 € more. He is not worth it to me, much too expensive imho.
    • Nose
      fresh lemon rind, melon, pineapple, unripe mango, green cucumber with many tannins (for cucumber), lime, cheesecake with a lot of added custard powder, caramelized sugar crust, toasted fresh wood (still green) - it is very fresh and citrusy with a clear mint note but also a green herbaceous note with the spicy times sometimes easily into the exotic slips - usually it commutes spicy herbaceous to hard mango or kohlrabi, very fresh still lush green wood, tree juice with a slight waxy touch.

      Although the nose is completely unalcoholic indicating higher age, it also brongt many wood notes that I know from under 15yo old Bourbon barrel
    • Taste
      fresh boards, sawdust, tree sap that dry your mouth, behave sweetly, the plant notes and spices are very much in the foreground. Grapefruit peel, lemon juice, tobacco, wax - a lot. fresh wood, a touch of hay, creme brulee
    • Finish
      quite long, comparatively mild and harmonious, very nice Balance of spice and fruit with slightly tingling oak / ginger / pepper charge and long, sustained waxy notes on the palate

    Nose: Many fruits, many citruses. Very good smell
    Taste: A lot of citrus fruits with a touch of light smoke. Sometimes, dried fruit will also appear. Fans balanced this smoke in relation to taste. Pretty strong aroma. Very pleasant to receive.
    Rating: 90 | 100 Long fruity finish
