  1. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Great, independent part, in the mouth it goes around where the nose was restrained. The alcohol is very well integrated.
    • Nose
      88 88
      "Apple glue", salty-spicy lemon, mouthwashing, with faint notes of vanilla croissant in the background and gooseberry liqueur (if there is anything like that).
    • Taste
      90 90
      Fruity-fresh-clean: what the nose was still hiding, comes out now: full of fruit basket with ripe Galia melon, grapes and pineapple as well as the sweet flavor of elderflower jelly, which is so typical for exBC-Nevisse. Interesting mix of flavors, however, that I haven't had before.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The fruit experience of the palate then leads to a long, intense finish, which then gradually turns into slightly sugared grapefruit.

    wonderful malt. I like it very much. Very nice fruity aromas, wonderful mouthfeel. Really delicious.
    • Nose
      sweet, fruity, spicy, some citrus fruits, slightly nutty, alcohol is well integrated, berries come at the end
    • Taste
      strong fruity start, sweet and nutty, very salivary, a bit spicy, vanilla comes out slightly,
    • Finish
      strong nutty fruity finish, spicy, sweet. Here, too, comes the vanilla. Long and tasty.

    Delicious Nevis whose nose is not particularly convincing, it is interchangeable and a bit too common for me. On the other hand, the palate offers much more variety and leaves a rather positive impression with the finish.
    • Nose
      85 85
      cautious, only a little grapefruit / lemon emerges, takes some time to open, slightly malty, herbs, sweetened fruit tea with vanilla, a fresh and grassy note is very present.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full, mouth-filling beginning, warming, slightly tingling sharpness, but not alcoholic sharp, lots of spice, oak notes with full fruit. Great variety of fruits like light grapes, pears, and exotic fruits like melon, some peach and mango, pineapple. I like it very much!
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long finish, spicy with a beautiful, intense fruit that turns slightly into a sweet and sour taste,
