  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    powerful but very drinkable for such a high Abv. A lot of fruitiness and floral notes. Pleasant experience for sure.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruity and floral. Citrus, pear, hardly any alcohol noticeable. Later on a bit more alcohol punch.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty some power now, but certainly not too hefty. Fruity, citrus, orange, flowers. Later on it gains power, with more bitterness coming in, grapefruits.
    • Finish

      Much more smooth now, floral and sweet fruitiness. A bit drying mouthfeel. Pretty long.

    • Nose
      Resinous + roses. Fresh fruits came out, like pineapples, apples with a few drops of honey. Not much menthol given it's 61% ABV. Then light coloured cherries, which turned into walnut with some plant sweetness. Oranges and mangoes. Near rim bottom of the glass you got light oranges. Strawberry from the sides with some fresh berry sourness.  Top of the rim, cherry. Nosed from the left to right, citrus peel. Let it breathe for 1 min, more nuttiness popped up. Some Coffee after the first sip. Medium-to-light strength overall but still diverse.
    • Taste
      Citrus and yellow fruits. Richer, sweeter with fruit sourness in 5 to 10s. Quite rich in flavour I have to say. Spiciness then arrived while the sweetness dropped. More oily later on. Light yellow Fruit + green tea bomb when swallowing.
    • Finish
      Pomelo, quickly turned liquorice, mint candy, wax, then more green tea. Fruit saftertaste like longan and rambutan. 1 min later, mellow, my mouth became a little bit dry too.

    Veey good but just that bitterness… dang

    Water helps

    Big banana sponge cake. Worth a try

  5. boozegeeksouth scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Bananas! Light on the nose, but heavy on the palate. I didn't expect the fruit to be like this, but it's quite nice. Finish is medium, the bananas fade before the alcohol does.

  6. Xaccie scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Banana cream, banana sweets, banana foam candy in the nose, the taste and the finish. Wonderful extreme-Bourbon cask dram

  7. boozegeeksouth scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    On the nose, bananas, bananas, bananas! The palate is simple and clean but the bananas are still there, now with a bit of spice as well (might be the alcohol). Finish is a little longer than I expected - even after the alcohol clears I still have some overripe fruit on my tongue.
