  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      First very clean, then more creamy. Vanilla sugar and green apple. Subtle malt and spices, one of them mint. With water a candy sweetness like wine gums.
    • Taste
      Creamy vanilla, apple, fig and soft malt. Here water reveals a more sour candy touch, but also a spiciness.
    • Finish
      More towards the green apple again, Vanilla and a whiff of smoke.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    At a certain point, alcohol gets a bit too prominent, but in a whole it's very fresh and sweet, candy-like. The nose is the softest part and fresh, with only less alcohol.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fresh and sweet, vanilla, foam blocks ("schuimblokken"), Haribo peaches. Alcohol surprisingly mild for such a high Abv. Toffifee, candyfloss.

      Full, a little pickering now. Sweet, floral and grassy. Peach, orange, vanilla. Along the way it's getting more strong and intense, also some citrus.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still some pepper, sweet, vanilla, orange and peach. Gets more intense along the way. Pretty long, with a candy-like sweetness.
