  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Well drinkable, slightly smoky, bourbon matured whisky. A tasty malt with medium complexity.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Needs time in the glass, at least 20 minutes: lime, canned pineapple slices, apples and pears, fruit sweetness, minimal peat smoke. All in all a bit reserved, the aromas are not intrusive.

      Edit: With air in the bottle significantly more aromatic.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Pineapple, tropical fruits, lime, slightly sweet, but also noticeable acidity. Better on the palate than on the nose. The alcohol is well integrated and pushes the aromas forward. Water not necessary.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Peat smoke is most noticeable here, but not excessive either. Remains medium long. Again tropical fruits and lime.

    Yummy, but not the whisky.
    I really like it now. Especially the nose has really developed!
    • Nose
      88 88
      color: white wine / straw
      nose: very restrained, light fruity (grape, pear), sweet, cooling (mint), in the empty glass there is vanilla and a hint of peat
      Second round: Now there are sour apple rings, shower sticks, nice citrus note
    • Taste
      86 86
      sweet, spicy, a little bitter, strong but not too strong alcohol
    • Finish
      87 87
      dry, bitter, medium to long finish

    Conclusion: This extraordinary single malt is one of my favorite whiskys. Especially in the nose it is a sensation. The taste cannot keep up 100%, but it doesn’t need to hide. It is very easy to drink and tastes fantastic. The overall package is right through and through! WOW!

    Tasting Notes

    Smell: Juicy fruits, pineapple and papaya, pleasant nuttiness behind, aromatic oak wood with a hint of campfire smoke. After a while, the existing complexity is harmoniously rounded off by a sugary sweetness.

    Taste: Intense, sour fruit notes, pineapple and papaya can be found, carried by pithy cereals and nuts.

    Finish: medium length, pleasant sweetness underlines the fading fruitiness, elegant oak with a hint of campfire smoke in the finish.
