    Overall: Noble rot and intoxicating aroma, treat hypoglycemia with one mouthful. It is a tropical fruit that sticks to the water. It is pressed by pepper and ginger in the middle. Finally, the dry wood with a slightly earthy atmosphere ends the whole. This wine looks like a passionate and energetic young girl Hannamoto Hannah (idiot laugh).

      Sherry, caramel, vanilla, same Glenmorangie fruits (orange)

    In the nose mandarin peel and almonds, behind it is sweet orange jam fresh sponge cake. There is a light, spicy note of nutmeg over everything. Strong, peppery onset, initially slightly bitter, dry notes of lemon and lime peel. Then comes the sweetness and hints of sweet muscatel wine. Despite the 46% soft and round. Long-lasting aftertaste, warming with lime zest and vanilla. Fine droplet ...

    N: sweetness on the nose, honey, sweet spices, stewed orange compote cooked by the fire
    B: it's creamy, confectioner's limit, it's sweet, round, a little glue, cooked almond, quite dry wood, the sauternes (the cask) brings a little sweetness, linearity in the dram.
    F: medium, simple on the same aromas, round scents without angles.
    A Highland of less typical, the most happening everywhere, the basic whisky!
