  2. glen efze scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Strong, sweet vanilla with a bit of woody bitterness and subtle light fruitiness. The taste is initially dominated by a bitterness from the wood, which is not yet unpleasant and becomes nutty. Now the light-colored, ripe fruits are also more pronounced in terms of their aroma. The alcohol is well integrated, water is not required. Overall, the whisky is very tasty, but it lacks depth and aftertaste.

    Nose: Vanilla ... ok ... it always fits ... but I mean the kind you know from mixing a vanilla pudding, so pretty intense ... then there is also nut involved

    Taste: ... nice and creamy, pastries, waffles with partial chocolate coating ... the high alcohol content is little or not superficial ... dried fruits ... all of this not too sweet

    Finish: In the aftermath, the percentages are still noticeable, but not unpleasant ... the finish is very long and more spicy than sweet ...

    ... I like it a lot ... 11 years with barrel strength for less than 60 € also a good PLV ... (at least as of 2021 ...)
