  2. JungleDram scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    At the beginning a sourish alcoholic nose, which in the course of time vanishes in the glass. After a few minutes, it opens and invites you to drink with very light aromas of white chocolate. Also on the palate, he is initially a bit restrained, but from the beginning very soft, slightly sweet and salty, creamy. But one has the feeling that he is hiding something from you. A sip of water gets him in spite of only 47.2% quite well, it bring light fruits, figs, ginger and vanilla to light. No flavor explosion, but pleasant and light. The finish is very nice and long played by not bitter oak tones, sweet and soft.
