    Tasted and assessed in a blind tasting - ProefOlympics # CL2 - April 2020. Was a bit disappointing (but certainly tasty for the price.

    Solid 10-year standard and quite solid for the price. You can't go wrong with this malt. But you shouldn't expect much more from it.
    • Nose
      81 81
      A lot of citrus flavors, lemon, more lemon juice than zest, a little apple and later also green, herbal notes. Vanilla caramel and honey sweetness are also present.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Moderate start, very tame but a nice mouthfeel. Sugar-like sweetness from honey sets in very quickly. A little wood appears and reminds of cocoa.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length with chocolate, the citrus notes from the nose now turn into a beautiful bitterness of the citrus peels. Unfortunately everything evaporated pretty quickly.

    expression and appreciation may be less, but it seemed softer and more drinkable than in the previous design ... good summer dram!

    20 20 19 20 79 - another bottle, another time, and sherry and easier, it happens (((...

  10. hawk31 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Very citrus-rich, lemon cake with frosting, sweet apples, marzipan, sage, fennel tea (but fortunately only a little, hate the stuff actually), Werther's real, milk chocolate, here and there a red fruit without exact assignment. Vineyard peach, Nashi pear, yes that smells like a typical mixture of bourbon and sherry casks for me ..

    Taste: Nice mouthfeel, fermented apple, pressed sweet apple and pear juice, dark honey, subliminal roast aromas, hazelnut, cocoa, a bit of sea breeze. The citrus fruits from the nose, I think not so right back.

    Finish: medium-long, again cocoa, dark honey, no bitterness, full-bodied chocolate, blood orange.

    Very solid standard with the certain Inselkick, but the citrusy nose you have to like, is really very dominant.
