- Nose: after about half an hour orange, freshly mown grass, hay, contreaux. Mouth: Also after some time perfectly integrated alcohol, the 46% are very good, he drinks nicely away, dangerous. Then again orange, light vanilla, a hint of passion fruit, then quite quickly a pleasant bitterness. Finish: leaves the tongue furry, very pleasant mouthfeel, light oak, rather short. The fruity sweetness remains on the tip of the tongue while the bitterness lingers on the palate. After 1h in the glass it becomes earthy, malty, slightly bitter and more fermented kumquats. Conclusion: a very, very good whisky, which is possibly € 20 too high priced. I still buy another bottle and recommend it to anyone who has not had enough of their predecessors. The 46% should not scare you. Although 2-3% would be more nice after the second glass. Give it time so that the harsh mini coffin note vanishes.
- Tropical fruity nose, great BC. Here you can find lots of light fruit and a bit of hay. The taste is balanced and round. Unfortunately, it is a bit too thin, which is reflected on the palate and the finish. He is (dangerous) good but he could be much more.
- Color: yellow gold
Nose: herbs, some banana, orange, freshly dried hay, for 46% an intense, beautifully integrated accio
Taste: creamy, a little vanilla and banana, light tartness, citrus fruits, honey, bitter almonds, the alcohol is also noticeable here but also beautifully integrated and not disturbing
Finish: medium length, light sweetness but also some citrus,
Definitely a nice, delicious drop that was right on the bus.
I would have liked more vanilla and fruit notes. So he is more on something citrusy side to find.
