  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky, which needs some time to develop. At first alcohol is pretty dominant, later on it gets more smooth.
    Sweetness and fruitiness, really very pleasant.

      Pretty some alcohol, sweet and fruity, yellow fruits, lime. grassy. Ripe fruits, alcohol keeps on punching.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Still pretty some power, pepper. Sweet and fruity, orange, apricots, vanilla. Also some bitter edge of alcohol, grapefruit.
      Later on it gets much smoother, the bitterness disappears, more fruity sweetness.

      Still quite some power, pepper, orange, bitterness of orange zest as well. Pretty long, whereas the bitterness dominates, grapefruits.

    Lemony, but not too bright. I think this one will be quite nice in early autumn. I first wrote Meyer lemon, but I had not have one in a while so I forgot the taste. I think just lemon suits too.
    • Nose
      Lemon, malty, tea leaves, green apple peel, white peppers
    • Taste
      Creamy texture, lychee, lemon, faint smoke, oak, white peppers
    • Finish
      Coriander seeds, tea leaves, moderately long, tobacco
