    Strong citrus and herbs on the nose. Palate keeps what the nose promises. Exceptionally intensive.

    blend LOWLANDS
    fresh, vanilla, floral, creamy!
    a little lemon in ice!
    peppery spice, fine woody, dried herbs, sweet lemon, a little cooked
    back surprisingly creamy, a little mint inside the bouquet of herbs, sugar, strong vanilla (concentrated), a little wax too, encaustic
    vanilla and lemon
    floral sweetness
    simple but holds to the palate

  7. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This full-bodied cask strength Lowland whisky pleases with wonderful fruity notes and sweet vanilla, being well kept in balance by warming spices and the high, somewhat biting alcohol content. Appears much more tamed when diluted, but the creamy, almost sticky and fruity sweetness is almost completely lost. A nice summer whisky with an intense warming spiciness. Something for the cooler summer nights, so to speak.

    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity on the nose with a delicate lemon note and apricots. Vanilla sweetness with a touch of blossom honey and icing sugar. Hints of ginger and oak in the back with a noticeable alcoholic bite.
    • Taste
      Deliciously sweet on the palate with creamy vanilla, followed by lemons and apricots. Silmutaneously, it is bold and strong with a warm and spicy note of white pepper, caramelised ginger and a whiff of oak. Creamy, almost sticky with a floral touch.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, slightly warming and creamy sweet with sticky apricot jam. Floral and grassy with a touch of oak on the tail.

      With water: A bit fresher on the nose with lemon sorbet and a restrained alcoholic bite when a few drops of water are aded. Still sweet and fruity on the palate while the warming spiciness is tamed significantly. Less creamy and fruity with a hint of pepper and some prickling oak in the back. The finish shows medium length with floral notes and dry oak.

  8. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not very complex, but powerful and flavourful stuff nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Sweet and warming notes of vanilla, as well as freshly cut Granny Smith and pickled lemon. A whiff of rye bread, cotton candy and straw too.
    • Taste
      Rather a good amount of vanilla and oak shavings, as well as powdered sugar. There's a good hit of zesty lemon and white pepper too, followed by a sliver of mint and roasted peanut skins.
    • Finish
      Peppery, vanilla, lemon.
