    Add three drops of water: the floral and creamy aromas are still bright, and you can smell citrus peel, honey, and spices. The entrance is salty and sweet with citrus, floral, apricot, banana, malt, and spices. The rhyme is instead a fruity fragrance mixed with floral fragrance.

    Conclusion: The aroma is very bright, the flower and fruit fragrance is a very beautiful main axis, and the clean and a little oily and mellow roundness makes people drink very comfortable. The most impressive thing is the flower and fruit sweetness that the tail rhyme spreads continuously.
    • Nose
      At first, I can feel the bright white floral fragrance, honey, malt, some slightly ripe banana fruit, milk sugar, nuts, cardamom, and some spice. After nearly half an hour, the floral flavor continues, a little more citrus sweet and salty. Caramel sweet
    • Taste
      Medium taste. Can clearly feel the rounded oily ester citrus, citrus fruit, floral, honey, malt, butter, milk sugar, nuts, spices
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Citrus skin, citrus fruit, floral, honey, cream, milk sugar, slightly sweet mint, fruity flavor continues to extend

    A fantastic bottling, sweet and very fruity, well balanced and extremely drinkable. Adding a few drops of water really makes it come alive.
    • Nose

      Great nose: sweet honey, vanilla, floral, orchard fruits like apple, pear, peach, a clear note of citrus and some unripe banana, hard candy. Also almonds and quite spicy with some cinnamon, turmeric and cumin. Initially there's even a weird rubbery note in the background, but this eventually vanishes. Becomes more floral over time.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Maybe even greater taste: quite creamy, honey, slightly waxy, fruitcake, lemon zest, dried apricots and apples, peach, some marzipan and a nice rounded spiciness ending with a little pepper.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Lovely finish of quite a substantial length: peach and peardrops, a sudden note of vanilla custard, some faint honey fading into a sparkling pomelo/grapefruit bitter with an edge of subtle oak wood.

  3. Falnor scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Just a briljant fruity nose with lots of elegant fragances. Nothing heavy, nor fat but a lot of bright and fresh stuff that remains very complex throughout your dram.

  5. OJK scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Abundant tropical fruit focused on banana, pineapple and passion fruit, balanced with some grassy floral notes, and a soft herbal edge. So much fruit though, the nose especially is more like a cocktail than a scotch.
