Malté, très rond en bouche où rien ne dépasse, à la manière des japonais.
Je m'attendais à mieux, le souvenir que j'ai du 12yo est bien meilleur.

Schwach, wenig Geschmack, kaum Tiefe,. immerhin kein nerviger Nebengeschmack. Ein toller Whisky für Gäste, die nichts davon verstehen. Kauf ich nie wieder. Einfallslos, kein Charakter. Es gibt Billigere, die mir besser schmecken, zB. der Bunnahabhain XVIII.

Well, somewhat underrated (< 85 pts) and overpriced (>200€) at the same moment.

Very nice whisky, but difficult to describe why. I should try another dram I guess

Nez fruits jaunes et fleurs. Ne fait pas son âge en bouche. Finale astringente et réchauffante. Moyen.
