    Eyes: Golden smelling fragrance. Nose: Compared with the Spanish story, it has a fuller and more colorful fruit aroma, grapefruit peel, red Fuji, citrus, pineapple syrup, and the slightly green part is mainly fresh mint, basil, and ginger. The spiciness is not strong, and a cheesecake appears at the end, with a slight smoke from the burnt.
    Taste Palate: fried citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, honey grapefruit juice, candied lemon, lime, tonic water, then turn to stewed fruit, rock sugar red pear, lost foam Fanta orange juice, syrup, the end is Wheat bran, blue zinc oral liquid, cake dough, cocoa powder final rhyme Finish: long, sawdust, black bitterness, orange peel body: medium to light, medium fat

    Nose: 85/100
    Palate: 85/100
    Finish: 83/100
    Body: 84/100
    Overall: 84/100

    • Nose
      88 88
      Aromatic, light with fruity and floral notes, some oak, hint of vanilla. Inviting and pleasant in appearance
    • Taste
      87 87
      With an easy start, fruity-sweet-tart, barrel, spices, slightly perfumed and a little spicy.
      Surprisingly tart oak / barrel notes at first.
      Over time, however, that will settle. Does not require the addition of water. Needs some time.
    • Finish
      86 86
      first delicately tart with a little chocolate, barrel and oak, then with a light fruitiness and a hint of sweetness.
      Sounds soft, slightly sweet at the end.

  9. Implar scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Decent blend here, and quite barley-centric on the mid-palate. As has come up a few times, you need to wonder if it’s worth the asking price.

    • Nose
      This needs a lot of time to open up. At first it’s mainly dust and chalk. With time there’s more fruity notes. Pear, mango and Reine Claude plums. Definite hints of grass and cereal too.
    • Taste
      It starts off quite fruity with notes of green apple, lemon and mango. However, those quickly get overtaken by grass, hay and cereal note. A heavy does of barley too.
    • Finish
      A medium long finish. Some pepper and vanilla. The tropical fruits, mainly mango, come back to end on a sweeter note.

  10. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Scotch Malt Whisky blended with Wheat and Barley Spirit, technically not a whisky because one ingredient is not 3 years old.
