  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    First wave of caramel. Then malt. A slight sweetness that gives way to fresh fruit, vanilla, honey and finally wax. Beautiful evolution! On the palate, nice fruit in syrup, generous and sweet. What intensity! With water, the spices become too biting.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  2. Toffie76 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I may be a little missed by this dram. To see again, therefore!
    • Nose
      Light, floral, fruity. Hay, a touch of smoke, cut grass. A little lemon, citric candy gel. Resin, wax and a touch of vanilla. There is little alcohol in the nose despite the rate of 58.2
    • Taste
      Strong start on lemon / citric acid. Astringent, safe, yeasts. A bit short and alcoholic at the finish. With water, you get more vanilla and hay / grass.
    • Finish
      A return a bit alcoholic. The set is in perfect harmony with the aeration and a few drops of water
