    • Nose
      First dark fruits and then becomes more and more maritime. Salt, iodine, citrus zests, bracken, nutty sherry.

      Soft and slightly oily. At first nutty, slightly sherry tonic, salt, light peat smoke, bracken.

      Elegant, long. Salted nuts, maybe some mustard.

    The perfume note is not too intrusive, but you have to like it.
    • Nose
      Forest soil after a rain shower. Old leather. The smoke takes a while, but then changes nicely through the glass. Licorice.
    • Taste
      Saline at the start, with a slightly perfumed note. Pepper resonates with a bit of greasy smoke. Orange slices, with lots of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Malt. Oak. Little smoky.
    • Finish
      At the back come bitter herbs, the oak becomes more intense. The perfumed note from the palate remains until the end.

    Michael Jackson (Malt Whisky Companion)
    Colour: Full gold to amber.
    Nose: Fresh leather. Ferns. Powrerful sea air. Notable dry.
    Body: Medium to full. Firm, smooth.
    Palate: Clean, smooth, satiny maltiness. Sweet sherry notes. Developing to crisp leafiness, then sea-saltiness.
    Finish: Sweet, juicy maltiness, moving to very lively, appetizing sea-salt.
    Score: 87

    I thought it was great for 45-50 €, I do not even remember the violet note, I do not know if it's me or the batch, but I like it here and now.
    • Nose
      salty freshness, campfire, spicy oak ... then some toffee ... the fruity notes need time and some water, but then crashes into neat green apple and lime
    • Taste
      there are again the violet notes, up towards blackberry (dark-tart-fruity), dominate almost everything except some ash and dark chocolate, I like very well, but can understand, if someone does not like or even feel soapy
    • Finish
      medium length, violet / soap, chocolate, bitter ash

    doesn't make me nervous but okay
    • Nose
      leicht künstliche Bonbon Süße
      Getreide
      Zitrusnote
      etwas Deo
      die Nase ist zu süß
    • Taste
      Veilchenöl im Mund, dann Schokolade und Orange 

      das Veilcheöl ist im Antritt und bleibt etwas am Gaumen

      bleibt aber insgesamt trinkbar

      besonders da sich im Mund auch Orange entwickelt

      etwas Blumenwasser
    • Finish
      mittel
      wird angenehmer 

      Schokolade und Orange
      etwas Gerste
