  5. Abydoss scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Weich, vanillig süß. Florale, frische Noten. Im Hintergrund eine würzige, nicht genau definierbare Schwere, erinnert entfernt an (geröstete) Walnüsse.

      Aber insgesamt sehr weich und frisch.
    • Taste
      Weich, fast ein wenig likörähnliche Cremigkeit. Öliges Mundgefühl. Dann ein eichenwürziger Antritt über dem eine Spur überreifer Birne liegt.

      Gar nicht so weich und leicht, wie die Nase vermuten ließe, aber auch keine übermäßige Schwere.
    • Finish
      Mittellang, würzig, malzig. Auch hier wieder die überreife Birne dezent im Hintergrund. Aber im Vergleich eher enttäuschend flach.

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Vanilla, light wood, nuts and crisp fruit. The smell is so light, soft. (82 b)
    • Taste
      It is light and delicate even in taste, even quite spicy, vanilla sweet, slightly creamy in flavor. (78 b)

  7. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A mix of two casks of Australian single malt from the Tasmania

    distillery, Sulivan`s Cove Double Cask has been matured in French oak

    port casks and American oak bourbon casks and is described as `a perfect

    balance between sweet malt and oak that ends with a hint of dark

    chocolate and rainforest botanic`.
