  1. LDB scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    What a strong multi-fruit drink!
    Intensive fruit flavors, all more on the tropical side, and beautiful oak notes go hand in hand here. Just great!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Overripe pineapple, liquid wild honey, resinous pine shavings, oily lemon, scent of flowering sage.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Mango, yummy, ripe mango with juicy pulp, sweet lemon, at first everything slightly waxy and supple. Then a splash of limoncello, light tingling is spreading. Now there is also lychee juice added.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Both elegant woody and harmonious fruit notes are there as in the nose and in the first taste.

    My first rating was not tender, there was also little taste to discover. Now that the content of the bottle is decreasing and more oxygen is added, the whisky suddenly appears to open, so that the typical tropical fruit is now clearly visible. What a finish! This therefore clearly needs more time to reveal itself.

    Great malt, especially the nose I like so much, as no longer for a long time.

      In fact, here comes a so horny over ripe Cantaluope melon around the corner, which gives the hand with an almost black banana. In addition, wonderfully sweet, honey is also aptly mentioned here. In addition, light citrus notes and a little green apple.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Not quite as overwhelming as the nose, but still very nice. Again a load of fruit basket. Then comes a nice pepper note and other spices. The spice now dominates in the mouth and tickles on the tongue. Alcohol is very well integrated. Towards the end I find more fruity notes again, here I definitely have mango. The mouthfeel is now rather creamy and it is getting sweeter. The said ginger I can guess with a lot of goodwill.

      Multivitamin Lolly. In addition slightly herbaceous reminiscent of grapefruit and drying pretty quickly.

  9. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: very filigree malt, the flavors do not kill you right at the first Nosing - bright fruits (gooseberry, mirabelle), a few citrus fruits, some oak spice, herbal flavors, some honey sweetness and vanilla, overall well balanced, the alcohol is well integrated

    Taste: Pineapple and Zintrone, ginger, wood and many herbs, again, no dominance of the individual flavors, but everything is well and harmoniously interwoven

    Finish: long, slightly waxy, light fruit, slightly dry in the back

    no water needed

    Conclusion: typical older tomato that supports the flavors instead of killing them. Great whisky, but unfortunately too expensive overall.
