    • Nose

      I smell a lot of citrus. Mainly lemon peels, lime and oranges. A nice, sweet tone of vanilla follows, followed by the firmer tones of white pepper and ginger. After a while I also smell a hint of dark chocolate.

      Also delicious vanilla in the mouth. The firm notes of ginger and cinnamon meet me, after which a sweet note of candied apple closes the palate.

      Medium-long and dry. Oaky in the aftertaste and the vanilla lasts. And after a while a hint of malt.

      White wine, a lot like sauternes. Very heavy. Orange peels, chocolate with orange crunch.
    • Taste

      Very smooth and mild. Vanilla, orange, a little spicy. Quite a nice whisky.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Malt, barley sugars, a bit of grapes and apples.

    Needs time to open up. Starts Bourbon like. Plain vanilla and fresh citrus. After a while the Olo comes in play and refines the dram. Acceptable and easy drinkable dram.

      Finish doesn’t stay that long. But thats a sign that you need another sip. It is a very light comfortable whisky.
