  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    unknown yellow sample from Dino

    Nose:

    Coconut-vanilla pudding quark cream meets seductive exotic fruits, sweet fresh whipped cream, flambéed toasted fresh light crunchy oak, gentle notes like in a warm wooden house with a touch of herbal resin, clearly beeswax, very harmonious without flaws and exactly the kind of delicious fruitiness that I don't remember in the end Whether sherry or ExBC Cask - from the profile a mixture of an excellent exBC Lossie 1997 a top 1990s Tomatin and a good part of 1973 Speysider - the fruit and dessert notes are very dominant - the wood and wax aromas only form a backdrop, only give a deep step when heated Glass further in the foreground, I can't find the slightest trace of smoke - otherwise it could also be an unpeated Laphi 21

    Palate:

    very soft texture, crystalline brilliant clear aromas, very clean, boiled apple and pear with vanilla pudding, fresh yellow melon, dried mango, tickles slightly with fresh, pleasantly spicy tree sap, tobacco, noticeable oak load - polished furniture wood, horn, sweet grass, essential Mediterranean herbs and light chili notes indicate a few more years in the barrel in the barrel or a fresh barrel - the bitter notes are cautious to deliciously spicy for my palate

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    You should actually give this Irish guy a lot of time to unfold in the glass, it's worth it. In the mouth, after the mild start, it looks older than on the label. A little water adds a few nuances, but there shouldn't be too many drops.

    The Notes are only a short version. The long version has already been described in detail by dRambo. :-)

      After a long standing time, a potpourri of many tropical fruits, behind beeswax and a fine spice of beautiful dry oak notes.
    • Taste

      Very mild start, despite more than 50% alcohol content, then sweet juice from tropical fruit, mixed with strong oak spice, which provides a pleasant tingling sensation.

      Unfortunately only medium length, I would like it to be longer. Slightly peppery on the tongue, plus the fruit basket that ends - nice.
