  1. DulischM scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    An interesting whisky to crystallize out the influence of the European oak. Nevertheless, it doesn't quite convince me with the bitter and woody aromas.
    • Nose
      Garden fruits such as apples, pears and quinces appear, followed by sweet citrus aromas and lemongrass. Then some creamy vanilla before the whisky becomes sweet and spicy with nutmeg and walnut.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is clearly woody and somewhat bitter, spicy and at the same time astringent due to the tannins. Here, too, a sweet and creamy fudge appears, the aromas go a bit in the flowery direction with honey.
    • Finish
      The finish is very woody with a young barrel and rather bitter.

    n 20 new wood, leather, new distinctive caramely-maple-syrupy Jura flavor which I’m not sure I like.
    t 20 nose carries on, with more oak, and more oak, and oak and a hint of sandal wood and oak once more.
    f 20 same woody peppery finish, surprisingly pleasant but not really up my alley
