    Very balanced with a fruity complexity and some herbal notes - fantastic!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very citrusy, dry hay, grapefruits, pepper, ginger, limes, little leafy, whiffs of vanilla - very good!
    • Taste
      93 93
      Very oily, creamy, mellow, sirupy - you really don't feel the high abv - fruity, bananas, peaches, more vanilla, some teaish notes - I'd say earl grey - great!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, warm, more teaish notes, little herbal, still good sweetness and fruitiness

  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    rather a quiet discreet conspecific - wonderfully complex and dense - looks older
    I like it very much
    • Nose
      90 90
      First, very closed, than give some time and a drop of water - herbs, vanilla, salty beef broth, metallic notes, chamomile tea
    • Taste
      91 91
      Creamy and oily - wow! What feet on the edge of the glass - herbal drops, a slight mineral chalky smoky notes, green fruits, clear oak, the alcohol is barely perceptible, hay bales and straw
    • Finish
      89 89
      dry - herbs, very long, wood pushes significantly

    honey, fruity with a tobacco like smoky sweet cigar ash. starfruit and pineapple notes appear later or with more intense nosing. There is a syrupy pineapple apricot peach like amalgam for me in the body. Not a peppery finish, but a full mouth body like sensation.

  7. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Morden style, artificial pineapple flavours, orange candy, floral and sweet, very concentrated.
    • Taste
      Loud and sweet pineapple, white peach, hot and spicy, a bit simple, some bitter oak.
    • Finish
      Short medium, white peach, fresh apricots.
