  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    a pure pure product from there:
    nose:
    lime, leather, intense sweet fruits with ripe apples, quince, pineapple, caramel, mango, a sweet, waxy, creamy side, kernel almond, a vegetal return, polish. In addition to honey, vanilla, cocoa.
    mouth:
    creamy spices, toasted caramel, more than cooked, pastry cream, honey, pine resin, bread yeast, sticky sap, soaked wood; the citrus fruits come back, on the mango, a little cooked pineapple juice, the cooked lime,
    almond shell return with its somewhat disabling kernel. Creamy malt on the finish.
    final:
    most with caramel extract, candied fruits on citrus and exotic fruits, caramelized sugar, very pleasant polish here;
    peppery spices on the finish and the raw almond, calmed with the tasting with a drop of water. (11)

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A surprising whisky, which can be found a bit.
    Beautiful fruity, slightly exotic, and floral frame.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A little roasted pineapple wrapped in aromatic herbs. Light strawberry tagada and malabar.
      Pepper, ginger, then with the opening, a beautiful elderflower.
      Light walnut oil.
      A nose that looks a little and needs a good aeration.
    • Taste
      88 88
      On the palate it is floral, with a little mirabelle plum brandy.
      Violet, pink, very fragrant.
      Oily on the walnut, hazelnut.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Floral and fragrant finish, on rose, pear, lime.
      Light cotton candy.

  3. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An excellent bourbon barrel whisky with wonderful fruit flavors. Indistinguishable from a Scot. But definitely needs water.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Intense, sweet fruit notes with ripe apples, quince, pineapple. In addition honey, vanilla and later cocoa. The fruit notes become clearer with water.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, exotic fruits, honey and a slight bitterness. The alcohol is quite evident and needs to be curbed with water.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Quite long, again exotic-fruity finish with passion fruit, pepper, chocolate and warming alcohol
