    ***
    ????: white sweet wine,
    ????: sweet, bourbon, varnish and brine! Very cool! A bit scruffy, you can still feel youth,
    ????: sweet, smooth, kind of strong and so delicate, cool! Oily, intense, slightly developing towards astringency ... it's a pity here,
    ????: sweet and tart, subtly warming, even not so short but very delicate,
    *
    If not for the final tartness, there would be a very good dram! Nice ex-bourbon with varnishes and sea-like nose, sweet on the tongue, but only at the beginning. Seemingly young but coherent and even smooth. A big plus with a small downside.

    Great everyday whisky, nice fruity and malty notes. I like him.

    Somehow I always think of a beer with 8-10% alcohol. Can anybody confirm this?
    • Nose
      freshly crushed grain / hayloft, honey, dried apricot, pear, mango, furniture polish
    • Taste
      Beer? Old wardrobe (old wood with a little lavender), slightly waxy, dough, orange, mint, pears and coconut
    • Finish
      Ginger, coconut and I don't know if I'm imagining it: strong beer

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very fruity and full whisky. Very nicely balanced, from nose till finish is like a unity. Very pleasant dram.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, citrus, lemon to be more specific. Floral, a little mint now. And ripe apples.
    • Taste
      Strong, some pepper, honey, orange. Again a bit of mint. Honey, full taste and body.
    • Finish
      Still powerful, pepper, honey, some orange, pretty long finish. A little of peach as well.
