  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Powerful and rich whisky, harmoniously cut, bright and quite diverse palette, obviously young and not hiding it, drinkable, invigorating.
    • Nose
      Open, damp, freshly sawn boards, grain, vanilla, light floral notes, sweet pastry tones, a little mineral shades - drying plaster, wet pebbles; carpentry, daikon, lemon peel, more mineral notes in development.
    • Taste
      Powerful, dense, woody-grain tones framed by vanilla, sweet confectionery notes, then a bittersweet wave - young bark, cardboard, tablets without a shell, and it fits very well into the overall picture without spoiling it at all; pepper wave, grapefruit rind, daikon, sweet fruit tones, ginger.
    • Finish
      - Soft, tart, woody notes and traces of astringency, bark, floral-herbal shades, ginger, vanilla, tropical fruits, strong mineral motifs.
