  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Creamy touch, fruity and caramel-seasalt. Quite smooth, pleasant and easy drinkable dram.
    • Nose

      Fruity, apples, with some clear caramel and fudge touch, and a subtle maritime character. A fruity variant of caramel-seasalt chocolate. Later on thr fruitiness gets more dominant.

      More smooth, caramel-seasalt touch. A bit drying mouthfeel, middle long.

    • Nose
      On the nose it is quite fruity with apples, melon, banana, vanilla toffee and citrus.
    • Taste
      On the palate side, it delivers what the nose promised, a sweet fruity smooth character: bananas, apples, pears and lemons. The sweetness of toffee and honey with a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium with the fruit given place to gentle spices and salty water.

    Very characteristic, sour-fruity like a tangy punch, maritime, salty and sweet-dry interplay. Anything but easy drinking because the bitterness increases with every sip - November 9th, 2020

      Sour, floral, maritime, lemon juice, Granny Smith, Berentzen Sour apple, pear, the sour component is very dominant, vanilla sugar, biscuit
