  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    An elegant, great fruity nose. Delicious on the palate with well integrated alcohol. Only the finish could be a little longer.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Lots of fruit with tart apples, passion fruit, pineapple and lemon balm. With honey and vanilla. Wood and dust.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweet, spicy, tobacco, pineapple and other light fruits, vanilla, malt.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Almost medium-long finish. Very soft, honey, fruity, subtly bitter.

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A delicious malt from the bourbon barrel. The nose is great, in the mouth it could be a little more intense.
    Unfortunately too expensive, so there is no large bottle.
    • Nose
      Nice vanilla. Sugar beet. In addition apple compote with cinnamon. Noble citrus notes that are partially candied. Floral notes. Cider. Fresh branches.
    • Taste
      A mix of sweetness and spice. Candy sugar. Apple Cake. Brittle. In addition tingling of the oak and the citrus fruits (now rather fresh, but ripe).
    • Finish
      Apple peel. Tree sap. Cereal flour.
