      Apple-cirtus-fruit sweetness with a bit of subtle smoke in the background.
      According to the 46 percent round and mildly harmonious. The apple note hovers over everything with vanilla and honey.
      Everything is rather simple and not very complex, but very, very nice and tasty to smell.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Here a slight acidity that tingles. Very easy here and at most a tick more than an all-day dram. A slightly buttery bitterness remains.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Short to medium length

      Description nails it. Literally a burnt honeypot, containing a thick mixture of 10 different honeys, interfered with (young) smoke. Sweet as hell, maple sirup, slight bacon notes. Creamy. Nice and thick, but not very complex.
    • Taste
      84 84
      First impression is a bit watery, subsequently the honey peak kicks in, followed by warm smoke and overwhelming sweetness. Sweetness, sweetness, getting dry in the end.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Honey and smoke remains, getting slightly bitter.
      Its a drinking whisky, to be paired with a BBQ w/ friends which can easily get out of hand, however, there are cheaper (and better) alternatives.
