  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Tasting note from a miniature. I like the nose but it doesn't have enough body to keep up with that.
    • Nose
      A fresh and fruity nose with apple candy, lime and vanilla. Some freshly cut grass and malt, as well as very gentle spices.
    • Taste
      Apple, pear, vanilla, oak and light spices. Some straight alcohol like in vodka despite its low ABV.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, pear, apple, caramel and a whiff of smoke.

  3. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Fresh nose with marc and pear. Mouth green fruits, vanilla, hint of bitterness. Final short and sweet. The nose is better than the mouth, medium.
