  2. Myke scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    on the nose emphatically fruity, spicy, flowery.
    Strong spiciness in the taste and the STR casks emerge.
    There are of course a few differences to the previous batches. Personally, I don't find any stark differences ...
    It is and remains a 3-year-old ... but ideal for the coming (early) summer.
    [85 - 81 = delicious -> get a second bottle if price is within the range]
    • Nose
      Icing sugar together with light / yellow fruits of apple, pear, apricot.
      Green (wine) grapes in the background. Over time, the aroma also becomes more spicy. In addition, some herbs appear.
      With even more air: mowed meadow of flowers and hay.
      Also feels like a walk in the forest after it has rained and it is still slightly damp in the forest.
    • Taste
      especially gentle at the start, but then the youthful flavor pushes in compactly.
      Peppery spice spreads on the tongue and releases more and more dryness from the spice to the tongue.
      The fruits tend to stay in the background at first.
      Second sip: the fruits from the nose are now full again. There is also a slight acidity from the wine barrels - for me it is more like a white wine barrel.
    • Finish
      The spice stays in the mouth, gets drier and drier, the STR casks come through and bring tannins with them.
      Actually persists for a long time with this batch.
