- Flat on the nose, boring ... citrus fruits sprinkled with vanilla sugar, floral notes, a little bit of wood and a stronger spiciness. Oh man, it doesn't really start well.
In the mouth the alcohol comes very strong, so I added water to get down to about 50-52%. Little fruit, little sweetness, but a lot of spiciness with pepper and oak. It quickly becomes drier in the mouth, the spiciness dominates. You can feel some anise.
Then there is still pepper and oak in the finish. Only a little fruit and sweetness remain in the mouth, all in all not very complex and very one-dimensional.
All in all I can only say for myself that this whisky is just boring and one-dimensional for me. For the low price you can of course not expect 1st division whisky. But for me this is more like a whisky in the lower part of the 2nd division.
My rating: 81/100 points
- Lots of bright fruits. Honeydew melon, apricot, honey.
The alcohol is nicely integrated and there is no trace of 57.8%. Delicious
