  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    An excellent, not too complicated malt. Something of everything: Delicious light fruity notes, very delicate smoke, and slightly spicy. Nicely balanced, round and simply very tasty.
    • Nose
      Sweet light fruits, clear citrus notes, a bit light, spicy wood, very delicate, light smoky note, 'dirty' lemon candy. After a while, the citrus notes become livelier and fresher, and the fruits also come to the fore. Tangerines and grapefruit come to mind, the character is increasingly tropical.
    • Taste
      Fresh grain, clear citrus notes, fresh green fruits, sweet lemon candy, very delicate smoky note, the slightly 'dirty' character comes through a bit, the fruits become sweeter, more summery and tropical. Almost a bit waxy. Slightly tart lemonade. Develops more and more clearly with more time in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Light fruits, very delicate smoky note, slightly spicy light wood, fresh citrus notes, light sweet herbal note, pleasantly dry, tart-sweet lemon peel. This is where the smoke comes through most clearly and appears slightly dry. Still has an impressive effect for a long time.

    This expression never ever disappoints. I compared it to a bottling from 2017 (ID 100855) and they're pretty identical. Maybe that one has slightly more sherry casks in it, but the difference is very subtle.
