  1. alectron scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose

      [bright
      beige-green] spirity/paint thinner +/o, unpeeled fresh fruits (green
      pear & peach) o, malt sweetness o, wood o (new & charred w a
      touch of smoke/coal in the background) sand o/-, (87)
      A
      Bit Later: still most of the above, w more fruit (this time freshly
      cut - kiwi +/o, plum o & honeydew melon o/-) +/o, vanilla o,
      cinamon o/-, chlorine -, (91)
    • Taste

      feels
      chocolat-y very briefly, then malt & cereals/toasted (88)
      W
      Water: lost a lot of it's character & feels artificiallty sweet
      (81)
    • Finish

      Long.
      Sour-sweet malty-ness, very fruity (sweet as well as sour-ish - and
      usually I'm not a fan of sour notes, this has a great balance though)
      & some cereal-y notes hand in hand & some vanilla & older
      wood poking through a bit later. You can taste some elements minutes
      later still (92)
      W
      Water: hmm... sweetness turns less fruity & more floral, not for
      the better for me. Also, funnily enough, pepper & mushrooms...?

  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nice fresh summer whisky.
    • Nose
      Warming, very fruity (green apples), fresh and sour with ginger. In the background there are notes of lemoncake, vanilla, cucumber and green tea. I like the freshness, but it is quite simple.
    • Taste
      Warming - starts with a vanilla explosion. Behind the vanilla there is green tea and some spicy ginger. Becomes more and more fruity, this time more on the sweet than on the sour side. The taste is even better than the nose.
    • Finish
      Long and warming becoming a little too oaky and slightly bitter.
