2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.13 points

  1. Highlander65 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      On the nose initially ripe fruit, plums, peaches, cherries, then a little mineral peat just hinted at, very discreet, raisins in abundance followed by white chocolate, perfectly integrated alcohol, you can dip your nose into the glass barely perceiving it, in the end they come out cereals (raisin sandwich), a pinch of nutmeg. In the long run, the scent of peat (always very light) turns to smoky, very delicate and elegant notes. With water, peat and fruit disappears, raisins decrease and the scent becomes "darker", turning to dark chocolate, tobacco and cereal (raisin sandwich).
    • Taste
      On the palate it is fresh, almost mentholated, fruity and spicy, the peat is not felt, sweetness just hinted at. With water it becomes even fresher and more balsamic, increases the sweetness (icing sugar) and alpine herbs sprout instead of mint.
    • Finish
      Nice fresh and mentholated finish (field mint), long, with hints of spice.
