  1. domani scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The nose is very promising and gives the impression you have a Speysider in the glass. The palate is not much. Here, the events focus more or less on the brief whims in the form of black pepper. The sudden onset of bitterness stops any development of aromas and seems more like programmed to suggest a certain maturation time. All in all, not so bad for 5 years - 28.09.2018
    • Nose
      Youthful freshness with a slightly exotic twist. Flowery and soft, star fruit, green pear, Ahoi effervescent, also has some musty, wet cardboard, beeswax, candle wax, lavender oil, fresh herbal aroma
    • Taste
      Sweet and soft then follows an increasingly intense tingling on the tip of the tongue, pithy black pepper, oily, waxy, ethereal aroma, quite early sets in a woody bitterness
    • Finish

    Quite young, but well balanced. Better complexity than expected of this age. The flavours and ABV are in great harmony. A promising dram, but not there yet.
    • Nose
      75 75
      Intensity - 5
      Richness - 6

      Porridge, a touch of gingerbread, honey, tropical fruit (mango), peach, vanilla and some pepper.

      Smooth, warming but slightly watery mouthfeel.

      Porridge again, mango, gingerbread, vanilla, coconut and biscuits.

      5-10 seconds.
      It carries some complexity with mango and peppery notes.

  3. Highlander65 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky, not very complex but well done.
    • Nose
      Good initial scent of fresh fruit, after a while there is a pleasant aroma of vanilla that grows to cover the fruity one, a hint of cereals and a hint of herbaceous
    • Taste
      On the palate it is soft, light and sweet, vanilla and confectionary without being sickening
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, sugary finish.

  4. vlad78 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Light floral, fruity and nutritious fragrance. A bit sharply-floral in taste.
    • Nose
      Fruity, floral, vanilla and lemon
    • Taste
      Fruity, floral, little spicy in the end.
    • Finish
      Fruity and dry. Apple juice

    Similar to the Puni Alba, this South Tyrolean is also characterized by particularly sweet flavors, making it ideal as a starter whisky. Of course, the whisky will seem too unspectacular to one or the other. But if it may be something mild and uncomplicated, then you can certainly find the pleasant vanilla, honey and flower flavors.
    • Nose
      A gentle scent of sweet vanilla, mild grape juice and floral aromas flows gently to me. Behind it also show some marzipan, honey and cinnamon and also a slightly alcoholic but not unpleasant note is to recognize again and again.
    • Taste
      With a composition of soft vanilla, sweet rape honey and floral notes, the malt is initially on the tongue, with all flavors come along very mild and unobtrusive. As in the nose, I perceive here also a slightly alcoholic white wine note.
    • Finish
      As expected, the departure is relatively short and also mild. The floral or floral aromas are particularly evident, but a subtle oak flavor is now recognizable.

  9. erizo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    5 years in the First Fill Bourbon barrel, light yellow color, intense vanilla with honey and light fruits, a thoroughly successful whisky. I'm looking forward to the first 8 or 10 years old. Keep it up! Tasted today at a distillery tour in Glurns.
