  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is still promising, sweet and fruity makes it hungry for the first sip. The taste is dominated by tart and dark wood tones with a pleasantly sharp note. On the whole a solid and honest drop, even if it has an almost too bitter base note for me ...
    • Nose
      Light straw shimmers from the glass while a large number of small "legs" loosen from the streaks attached to the glass wall and stick viscously to the glass wall. Sugar rises sweetly, vanilla is added, hints of milk chocolate and cocoa powder flatter the nose, zest from citrus fruits provides a pleasantly tart counterpart. Nuances of shortbread and old apricots, followed by a noticeably intensifying citrus note.
    • Taste
      The first sip of sweetness briefly flashes, then the bitter and sometimes bitter wood tones come into their own. Dark yellow fruits, old caramel and hard toffee, a minimal hint of whipped cream and butter, grapefruit and lemons, the tart wooden elements become noticeably more dominant, wooden sharpness emerges. Apricots and dark chocolate, a few black peppercorns, a pinch of salt and again bitter and tart wood tones.
    • Finish
      Tart and slightly nutty, zest of dried lemons and grapefruit, vanilla and caramel, dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts. Medium-long aftertaste.

    A fruit bomb on the nose, but few other aromas. I really like it on the palate because of the fruitiness and the overall pretty good finish. Dangerously tasty.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Slightly spicy wood, lots of vanilla, fresh and slightly tangy citrus notes, some chocolate, vanilla cream, a hint of lemonade, light pastry notes, some caramel, light wood.

      Really great aroma!
    • Taste
      86 86
      Great tart wood notes, strong chocolate, light tart citrus fruits, delicate herbal notes, a hint of vanilla, strongly spicy.

      With the second sip, the citrus notes become juicier and sweeter, the mouthfeel becomes softer and less spicy.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Spicy, pleasantly dry and a bit tart. Woody notes and tart citrus peel remain.
