  1. 2ndSip scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    fruity and sweet on the nose together with a portion of oak spice.
    Soft in taste with a good portion of fresh oak.
    You can still tell the youthful and fresh character of this malt. But good things can grow out of it in the future.
    Overall not bad, 'fresh & fruity' fits, but then too expensive for a 500 ml bottle.
    [80 - 76 = 'really not bad'-whisky --- but do I need a (second) bottle?]
    • Nose
      81 81
      first (surprisingly) red dried fruits, then sweetness of honey and caramel and white sugar. The dried fruits turn into light fruits, especially juicy apricots and fully ripe apples.
      Thanks to the Virgin Oak, a good oak flavor arrives in the nose. I go towards cinnamon and some nutmeg. If he could draw some air, then fresh wood aromas are added.
      The Virgin Oak becomes clearer over time. There is also fresh grass / hay as an aroma.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Soft start, the spice is retained in the pepperiness, but comes through well with nutmeg and a little cinnamon. Fresh cut wood is present.
      With the second sip it is fruity and a little sweeter again, even though that fresh wood-flavored moment appears over and over again. Who likes it ...
    • Finish
      79 79
      relatively short finish. The oak seasoning from the Virgin Oak lasts the longest on the tongue.
      The 46% slowly 'burn' their way down the esophagus while warming.
