  1. MickMatrix scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Lots of vanilla and toffees. A little alcoholic. Spice.
    All in all, too one-dimensional for me.

    Exciting nose and tasty taste. I like it.
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla. Cereal. Apple. Delicate acidic note, like light grape juice. Then suddenly straw, which comes across quite tart and even stings a bit in the nose. After the first sip, a little honey is added.
    • Taste
      Mild and light in the start but surprisingly spicy on the tongue. The sweet start is shorter than the nose, but also shows vanilla and honey for a short time. However, hardly any fruit. A lot of muesli and then dry oak.
    • Finish
      Longer than expected. Pleasantly dry. Spicy on the tongue.

    I love it. Pretty charged with aromas, but very consistent.
    • Nose
      Sweet; Malt; clearly vanilla; some oak; balanced and elegant; after a few sips, also to recognize nut in the aroma.
    • Taste
      Sweet again; Malt back; a slight touch of oak; first he is spicy on the tongue, but then it is mild; Honey; Cookies or rather raw cookie dough; Vanilla; slightly fruity and a hint of nut
    • Finish
      Long and sweet; spices; Nut becomes more intense from mouth to mouth. It clearly dominates the sweet note. Oak is short, but rather sweet.
