    an incredible fruit bomb we have here!
    I have a lot of apple and pear in the nose mouth and very long also in the finish - it is like a real slice of apple remains on your tongue and does not vanish - really special summer dram and a gorgeous fruit basket
    Generally on this release - is it worth 115€ for 0,5L ... well there are probably better drams than this one for 150€ a bottle but it is really special and aren't we always looking for special releases .. therefore this one I will remember forever and therefore is worth its current price tag (which I cannot always sign for Boutique releases to be honest)

    • Nose
      Very lovely nose. Fruity. Red apples, apricots and Passion fruit. Oranges in the background. A nice layer of honey. Caramel. And a hint of vanilla. Later also mint and ginger appear.
    • Taste
      Nice and oily. Fresh pineapple juice. A hint of pink grapefruit. Oranges. But also some oak here. There’s vanilla. A cinnamon bun and some liquorice. Nutty from time to time. And slightly peppery.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and slightly dry. Honey. Cinnamon, liquorice and a hint of caramel. A faint hint of passion fruit here too.

    Notes taken from my blog, moredramslessdram.com
    • Nose
      The initial nose is quite fruity, with orange, peach, passion fruits and red fruits. A floral and grassy side is also present, with mashed mint leafs and roses.
    • Taste
      The arrival is very spicy on chilli-pepper and ginger, quite a bite from the alcohol though it’s “only” 51.5% abv. When the spices tone down, a touch of bitterness is revealed with grapefruit and very dark chocolate, some oak and a splash of coffee. The texture becomes a bit creamy over time, almost waxy after a long moment in the mouth. Following sips keep a spicy arrival but with a brief sweetness just before the spices come full on again. There may be hints of nuts and liquorice but hidden behind a huge wall of spices, they’re hard to find. After reduction, the spices are still quite present, but dark chocolate steps forward.
    • Finish
      Fruity with apple, liquorice and hints of oak, but not very long
