    Nose: a fruit cocktail, which unfolds very restrained. No stinging in the nose, so you can linger forever with your nose on the glass.
    Grated orange peel, light sweetness of toffee / marzipan - after a while a light wax in the nose. The sweet is still present in the background.

    Taste: As in the nose at the beginning of the reserved, then the orange peel, as if you would chew on sugared orange peel. The slightly bitter note of the orange combined with the sweetness is just brilliantly balanced. No alcohol noticeable, as if you were eating a fruit cocktail. To the orange still overripe grapefruit and honeydew melon.

    Finish: too short for my taste, here would probably have done a few more percent well. A touch of spice, the second sip more clear, but unfortunately a little too short. But that was just so well balanced that you would like to have taken the exit a bit longer.

    from me today 90 points, delicious yummy.

    The nose is rather elegant - it is rather restrained but you can lose yourself in it, delicious, very complex and lively - but also persistent.
    I really like the nose

    In the nose, light sweetness, oak and herbs, no very intense nose, yet very pleasant. Cool and sweet in the mouth, somewhat restrained, possibly due to the 45.2%. Short not very intense finish. Good whisky, but no bargain.
