    It could be called a light, floral drink, if not for the high degree. But in general, this is quite a spring release. For such an early, yet cold spring.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Light floral and linden notes, green sour apple, fresh twigs and foliage.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sour yeast, with hints of caramel, apple jelly and pear, baked dessert.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Sweet and sour, with yellow fruits, candied fruits, medium duration.

    This is the most amazing whisky I have ever tasted???? Strong, beautiful orange but dark 70% chocolate in tone, laaaang aftertaste with hints of peach. This was absolutely beautiful .. Drank this without knowing that only 246 bottles were made .. And now I'm empty. Something so depressing

    Next year I think there will be a great whisky.
    Now there is not enough balance at all, but in
    Elixir Distillers I already got used to it
