    From the first moment I felt it, I knew I was dealing with a "very" big Whisky.
    There was a freshness so intense on the nose. We would have thought a spring morning by the sea. Grapefruit was ultra dominant! Sweet and sweet at the same time, the exotic fruits lined the background. Absolutely nothing came to ruin this idyllic setting. I do not exaggerate saying that one could plunge one's nose into the glass is breathing with great puff without feeling the slightest gene!
    In the mouth ... Wouhaaa ... Imagine, it's like having concentrated in 1cl of whisky; passion fruit and sugar-filled mangoes, pink grapefruit and tangerines with a perfect balance of acidity, lemon peel crumbs and ginger. And then it was seasoned with some sweet spices; such as cinnamon and white pepper. The final is endless for its taste but also because we have the impression of salivating this nectar and swallowing without stopping. A vision of fresh peat is distinguished once the powerful presence of fruit has faded.
    It's just the best whisky I've tasted so far (01/03/2015).
