  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose is pretty scary at first, also taste is probably. Not something for everyone, I celebrate this extremity but very, nothing for every day. : 'D
    • Nose
      Pretty young, Grappa, a lot of grapes, light with seeds, sweet pear in alcohol, grasses, moist hay, almonds, citric acid
    • Taste
      Light honey, lots of almonds, strong, but the alcohol nicely integrated, coconut, crunchy malt, white grapefruit, green apple, leather, white chocolate, ginger, fennel, white tea
    • Finish
      Long, almonds, grated coconut, fennel, malt

    【First】: thin amber Not so sharp but alcoholic firmly aroma grapefruit [Middle]: grape's leaf sugarcane palm delicate honey plants one step before grapefruit peel 【Finish】: Return, the edge of the body rising powerfully ridiculously together with nose escape firmly, reminiscent of Guerrh cracking cracking sense In terms of weight it gives one step but lingering long lasting gentle gentle candy http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=5841
