  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For its age, an incredibly light and fruity whisky. He impressed me pleasantly.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, spices, wine note, a roll with poppy seeds and powdered sugar, oak, flowers.
    • Taste
      Spices, light tannins, berries, red apple and a pleasant malt component.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, bright, fruity, generally repeating the palate.

    • Nose

      Toffee, caramel, strong nuts, light, light fruits, creamy chocolate notes, a little sweet wood (and leather?)

      A wonderful and complex combination of tart, dark, spicy aromas and sweet notes such as caramel and fruit.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Light fruits, pleasantly spicy, surprisingly light on the tongue, tart wood notes, very light herbal notes, tart citrus notes, spices, slightly sweet orange.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Tart, pleasantly spicy, significant wood influence, minimally dry, minimal tendency towards bitterness, crisp tart chocolate. The malt remains slightly sweet and slightly tart on the palate for a relatively long time.

      Fruity and chocolate. Toffee. Warmed by hand, and already I have the taste of banana.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweet fruit. With the third and last sip, some bounty coconut flavor in the mouth.
    • Finish

      The finish falls off a bit, the sweetness is gone. Rather short.

    Smell: fresh alcohol, strong Christmas cake, maltose, white oak, slight herbal melon juice, tail: dried mango, dried passion fruit. There won't be too many changes, the oak barrels and the body of the wine simply merge.

    Drink: Rich oil, full-bodied and chewy. The taste buds are citrus fruits, orange peel, and the ending rhyme is a little bit of herbs and oak, without any pressure.

    Feel: her absolute advantage over the average advanced whisky is that the wine is of no doubt, full and chewy. Except for the alcohol feel, the overall feeling is still a little abrupt, and there are no other fatal shortcomings. I am very happy to find traces of dried passion fruit in the end of the aroma.

    Delicious, drinkable, but I haven't heard the magic of a double helmet for 18 years.

  6. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    very fresh and punchy with orchard fruits and honey, banana, toffee, very nice

  7. Car_murl scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    A delicious finish is created by harmonizing malty and umami. The scent is light and sweet, but the palette finish is strong and makes the whisky enjoyable. It is difficult to obtain because it is not imported in Korea.

      I was thinking of American Oak Vanilla. However, the fruity aroma that spreads out of the glass is great. The fragrance of the fruit is complex, but the sweetness and the berry feel are mixed to give the impression of a tropical fruit. The sweetness that comes with the fruity scent is low and deep, making it feel like jam. At the end of the scent, a slightly thin malt flavor and saltiness come out at the same time, but it is inconsistent. It's only been two days since opening, but I'm worried that it will aerate quickly because the scent is light.

      The body is light. It melts in your mouth like water. It doesn't bother me at all when I hold it. The scent that spreads when it enters the mouth is very good. It smells like malt with added MSG. It tastes good and makes you feel like you're having a delicious drink in your mouth. The taste is too overpowering and it is difficult to feel the aroma of other fruits.

      The throat is very soft. After swallowing, the flavor from the taste comes out of the nose, and I am satisfied with the large performance. When the malty performance is over, you can feel the fruity scent you smelled earlier. I tend to leave a long aftertaste.

    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, more ripe banana, vanilla, cookie dough, little citrusy, spices, little ginger - pretty good
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, warm, more punchy, spicy, still fruity and good sweetness
