- Still a little young and impetuous, very spicy, especially in the Taste and Departure. In addition to the fruity parts, it also has honey. Syrupy.
- A sample from WB.
Good middle of the road whisky.
Not sure if I'm getting soft and sensitive, but I found the spice to be a bit too hot when neat.
So again catching myself in recommending water.
Very fruity fresh.
Lots of pear, a little peach.
Very well integrated alc.
A barn full of very dry hay.
Some "white" wood, birch like.
Added quite a bit of water, seems to make the fruity notes clearer or cleaner when the alc is reduced.
Not as fruity as the nose. Some pear, but now it's more "hard" and unripe.
Gets a little zesty, with lots of hot pepper.
Water makes the pepper more approachable with a note of liqorice extract.
Neat it is a little drying.
Peppery spice dominating and overpowering the fruit in a short of medium lenght finish.
Again water softens the pepper, it's not as dry, and even adds a few very ripe sweet berries.
- Lots and lots of vanilla, some light yellow and white fruits, peach, pears and apples, also quite aggressive on alcohol making the experience very peppery. Definitely needs water, which puts just a bit more emphasis on the fruit notes. A pretty decent bottling, but also a bit of a one trick (vanilla) pony.
Personally I would not spend €75 on this. There's just too little complexity to justify this particular price level.
Nose is nice and young. Don’t smell too much different than ‘just good average whisky’
It almost tastes like hot tamales sweets. Sweet on the outside. Then an explosion of peppery tickling.
The finish is below average in length. The pepper stays.
