Whisky facile et plutôt agréable à boire, fin, sur le caramel, les agrumes confits, texture légèrement crémeuse. Mais hélas dilué et une finale très courte.

Nose

There's something sophisticated and immediately inviting about the nose. Very good ballance of smoke and sweetness.

Soft leather, coffe, a dash of varnish. Gentle vanilla, caramell and fudge.
Taste

Honey, chocolate, and a whole mouthfull of those fat walnuts I love.

Some fruityness and a light spicy feel emerge.
Finish

I find the finish about medium, it's on the sweet side and again with those really nice walnuts.

Comments

Very easy to enjoy.

Will not offend anyone, but stil please the more discerning.

Nose
Leicht rauchig, ein wenig würzig und gleichzeitig frisch. Ansonsten bekomme ich nicht so viel aus dem Whisky. 

Taste
Auch hier würzig, etwas Lakritz. Auch hier nicht so wahnsinnig komplex. 
Finish
Kurz, hinterlässt etwas Würze.

Hat mich nicht überzeugt.

Nose

Really mellow in whole. Unveils ripe tropical fruits, fig, sweetish hazelnuts, mild pear, a hint of sweet green pepper maybe, lemongrass oil, passion fruit?, newly chopped firewood. I also picking up some esters reminiscing wood varnish. Multiple layers of diverse aromas bear an appropriate complexity already - on the nose alone.

Taste

Succulent, thick, full, mellow yet again. With soothing green tea notes, jasmine?, herbs, juiciness, slightly honeyed, forest medicinal plants, quinine, cassia bark, pine nuts and dark deep tannins.

Finish

Quite spicy, hot in fact. Peppery, nutmeg, anise, sour mandarin, tangy juicy orange, orange peel zest, lemon rind/-pith, wood bitterness.

Nose

The nose is very light and fruity with a whole bouquet of scented flowers. Very fruity on plum and rhubarb marmalade, apple pie, vanilla and a bit of caramel. Some roasted coffee beans and a whiff of oak. Very clean, almost too clean should such a thing exist.

Taste

The attack is very soft, almost watery, but immediately honeysweet. Apple juice with iced tea, some breakfast cereals and spices. Nutmeg and a pinch of cinnamon. Some nuts now. Dangerously quaffable.

Finish

The finish is sweet, but very short.

Comments

This is an uncomplicated card players whisky from the Land of the Rising Sun.
