  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: It starts very fruity, fresh, pears, apricots, ripe oranges, initially very sweet, honey and more and more maple syrup. Over time, the sherry comes out more clearly, albeit subtly, fine wood, fudge and raisins, and the sweetness is offset by a rather intense ginger-like sharpness.

    Mouth: Also very sweet at the beginning, a lot of honey and milk chocolate. Juicy oranges, tangerines (the sweet mandarin fillets from the tin), lots of power and well-integrated alcohol. As the first fruit wave with its exuberant sweetness subsides, it shows fine wood, more and more spice and well-integrated herbal notes. Again, this time a peppery pungency.

    Finish: Very long, now with more and more dryness, peppery, but still with a reverb of orange, honey and fudge.

    Conclusion: A very good malt, which at first attracted me with its sweetness and sweetness, but which also conveyed depth and complexity due to the increasing influence of wood over time. The longer I had it in the glass, the better it became.
