  1. Bachess scored this whisky 86 points Administrator

    Odd whisky, no balance or harmony, think I like it.
    • Nose
      Strange nose, lot of citrics. Some 'drop' (Dutch candy) and organic smells like hai.
    • Taste
      Neat: bourbon like, not so smouth but too much parfume. Odd taste too (as the nose).
      Water: Not enough body for adding water, dont do this (at home :-) ) All flavours are gone...

  6. Lafroy scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of fruits, particularly green apples, a little bit of smoke, gooseberry and smoothness.
    • Taste
      A lot of apples, light sourness, gooseberry, a little bit of dryness, it is definitely smooth, but not very complex.
    • Finish
      Medium long, lightly fruity with a lot of green apple sourness.

    Just changed my rating from 82 to 85. Bottle is now below half and it seems fruitier than ever.

    Don't dare to rate this one yet but it's not going to be very positive. It's a lot like tequilla, it smells like squeezed lemon peel. With a little water the smell is nice/interesting but then it's too watery right away for the taste.
